Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) fiercely defended Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) Wednesday as he continues to be bombarded by the press over a lewd picture of an unidentified man's crotch that appeared on his Twitter account, accusing conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart of unfairly targeting Weiner and distorting his image.
"I am well aware of Andrew Breitbart, his chasing around with microphones in my face, his distortions [of] ACORN and Shirley Sherrod ... he has in my view no credibility whatsoever," Schakowsky said. "I have no belief that there's anything going on with Anthony Weiner, who also happens to be a happy, pretty lucky newlywed."
