This New York Post article might finally move this story forward. About that investigation… is this a good enough time for everyone?:
The furious mom of the Seattle college coed at the center of Weinergate yesterday demanded that the cocky congressman come clean about the lewd photo.
“I’m really upset. I feel like he’s a person of power and influence, who can make a statement and make all this go away,” Carol Mizuguchi said, blasting Rep. Anthony Weiner for his continued snarky sidestepping.
“As her mother, I’m really upset,” Mizuguchi told The Post. “I’m pissed off at that.”
Mizuguchi’s 21-year-old daughter, Gennette Cordova, got the surprise package — a close-up of an underwear-clad crotch — over the weekend in a tweet from Weiner’s account.
After days of dodging, Weiner yesterday admitted he “can’t say with certitude” that the photo isn’t of him.
But he continued to deny he sent the picture.
The pol’s refusal to clarify things has made a bad situation more difficult for her daughter, Mizuguchi said.
“It’s a distraction [for Gennette],” she said. “It’s during her finals and she’s 21 years old.”
The aspiring journalist even dropped one of her classes in the wake of the scandal, according to a faculty adviser.
“She’s just trying to have a normal life,” Cordova’s mom said.
Weiner first claimed his Twitter account was hacked, which is a federal crime. He later backed off and referred to the incident as “a prank.”
Cordova is one of 198 people, many of them pretty young women, that Weiner follows on Twitter.
