Nine Days Before Weinergate: May 18

(Enormous Hat Tip to Greg Beato at Soundbitten who has been doing incredible work on Weinergate related to the mysterious unvetted Weiner girls and the actions of Andrew Breitbart. His constantly updating timeline is here: Weinerology. I'll be updating this post through the weekend, since there's A TON of Weinergate events that took place on May 18 - many, again, first noticed by Beato. This is a work in progress, and some of this is reposted from an earlier blog, but it will be much easier to read in a few days...)

[9/26 note: I still haven't added many other May 18 happenings, so please check back tomorrow or go to Beato's site now and read about most of them on his timeline]

Journalist Greg Beato found and posted the following tweets by Goatsred aka Redgoat aka Mike Stack (a mysterious porn board mod accused of harassing women - NSFW example - who now claims he is being harassed "because of political payback") to fake teen @Starchild111 aka Betty aka Nikki Reid which were sent on May 18, asking her to Direct Message him.

Stack was one of the leaders of the #BornFreeCrew who, along with Dan Wolfe aka PatriotUSA76, were the only ones to notice Rep Weiner followed a porn star and other women out of only 91 followers in total, before the infamous underwear tweet sent to a Seattle college student late in the evening on May 27.

(See June 17 New York Times article I worked on with Jennifer Preston about how "two false identities on Twitter" were created "in order to collect information to use against" former NY9 Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner for more background information on the Starchild111 deception.)

Mike Stack has confessed to using socks on twitter: "I did, however, make up Twitter names to fuck with her" he wrote about his longtime "nemesis" Darrah Ford, who may or may not be fake, as well.

"I figure, if you can use the name Dr. Percy Spencer, (who, ironically is from Boston–dead giveaway) and call for my ouster due to you always wanting and never getting a mod spot, I can do the same on Twitter. She gets free legal advice from nameless, faceless minions there, telling her to sue me, and that I’m a stalker, because she spends hours crying to these 'friends' about it."

Andrew Breitbart associate Lee Stranahan apparently suspects Dan Wolfe is secretly Darrah Ford aka Jennifer George - a jilted Weiner mistress - from Boston.

The next day, Goatsred shared DMs with the other fake teen, Marianela aka Veronica who allegedly was trying to entrap Andrew Breitbart for unexplained reasons.

These May 18 tweets by Ethel or Maggie Henning (or MaggieHenningg when she hacks; see this link NOTE: Ethel and a hacker named Shamus Clancy who also liked to send jokey death threats on Twitter closed up the twitter accounts mentioned in that post and opened new ones after I outed them in July, not that anyone else in the media or even on blog comments have reported or followed up on it) were found and posted by Prudence Paine.

starchild111: Well @RepWeiner unfollowed me. That was a short time. I defended him from people. Some thanks he gives to his loyal followers.

starchild111: RT @[Ethel]: Funny that you said you had a crush on a married politician. Are you forreal?

Ethel: I DIDN’T SAY ANYTHING PSYCHO GIRL. stop tweeting about me.

Ethel: Goodnight world, I love most of you<3

The oddest thing about Ethel's "I DIDN’T SAY ANYTHING PSYCHO GIRL" is that a Topsy link shows that prior to that she sent an identical tweet as starchild111 on May 18 (and to herself?): maggiehenning: RT @maggiehenning: Funny that you said you had a crush on a married politician. Are you forreal?

In other words, the "real" Weinergate teen sent the same tweet as the "fake" Weinergate teen and then called her a "psycho" on the same day when many other Weinergate figures intersected in various, convoluted weird ways that can be easily verified by any intrepid journalist or blogger or blog commenter.

These are all the public tweets by @RepWeiner sent on May 18, including the times:

9:58 AM via TweetDeck: The new SCOTUS conflict of interest forms were filed! #YesClarenceYouNeedToFileAlso

11:59 AM via TweetDeck: RT @CapitalTonight: AP: Pete King is considering a presidential run in 2012. #DamnThoseEndofTheWorldPredictionsMayBeRight

12:55 PM via TweetDeck: RT @NBCNewYork: King Leaves Door Open for Presidential Bid Ah, so there is a door! #ToAPaddedRoomPerhaps

8:55 PM via Twitter for BlackBerry®: Thurs 8:30 am on with Imus. On FoxBus #WrinkledUpOldFool.

(Note: Calling the host of a radio show a "wrinkled up old fool" 12 hours before an interview seems like a strange strategy...)

At his Facebook page, Weiner left the following message at 10:48 AM:

"For 13 years, Clarence Thomas “forgot” to report his wife’s income. He filed new financial disclosures this week, but hasn’t made them public. What’s he hiding now?

Pressure him to tell us the truth and make the filings public immediately at"

At 12:11 PM, Traci Nobles left the following public Facebook message (which was liked by 3 people): "done and done. I think he's hiding his teeny tiny balls from the Weiner. thanks ADW, for your haaaaarrd, hottttt work. keep doing your thang sexy beast!"

Traci Nobles claims her last contact with Weiner was on May 20 which is the same day he sent a bare-chested photo to Broussard & she sent him 5 pictures.

During a 6/17 NBC News Today Show appearance that took place after Weiner resigned - but seems to have flown under the radar - Nobles claimed that Weiner sent her the same underwear pic Broussard and Cordova were sent, along with the full monty picture also received by Broussard, that Andrew Breitbart "accidentally" leaked on shock jock show.

Nobles told the Today show she had no regrets: "It was more than just sexual. We exchanged music or just talked about life in general."

Their salacious interactions covered everything from sex and Weiner’s wife discovering his online dalliances to campaign strategy, finance and Democratic and Republican politics. Weiner also sent multiple explicit photos of his penis to Nobles via email and numerous sexual text messages in which he often refers to his penis in the third person.

He even sent some of the texts from public settings, like press conferences, his office and television appearances.


In all, her sexting correspondence with Weiner amounted to approximately 292 files and 359 megabytes of data, all of which she has in her possession. Buried in that mountain is the infamous picture of Weiner in his gray boxer shorts that was posted on Twitter and was initially claimed by Weiner to be the work of a hacker before he admitted it was sent to a 21-year-old via the social networking site.

For some reason, the article doesn't note the only exclusive screenshot NBC News had to prove Weiner sent a text from his office saying "oops, staff at the door."

"It changed my life," Nobles claimed about the sexting relationship she had with the married Weiner. "It made me who I am today."

Nobles, in the exclusive appearance that NBC News might have paid for - since she refused to cooperate with the Las Vegas newspaper that first broke the story and send them anything in addition to what her unnamed roommate sent via Facebook message or email (I'm waiting to hear from the article's author to see how it was sent for sure since the article says email) - strangely sat between two lawyers who seem extremely overqualified to be there just to make sure she got a chance to present her story. John Baker and Jason Slider (at least she wasn't chewing bubble gum like Broussard did in her ABC News interview).

why do you have two attorneys? what's the worry? what's the concern?

no worry. we're just here and, you know, to support her, to make sure that everything is taken care of and that she gets -- presents her side of the story and gets to tell the world what happened.

she's got an opportunity just to, as you put it, ann, to set the record straight . it's a great opportunity and she's taking advantage of that.

Nobles told the Today show that her last Facebook chat with Weiner was on May 20.

On May 26, Nobles left this public Facebook message on Weiner's page: "nice. balls. love em'. i would totally gavel you."

Another unexplained question is who sent "dirty emails" to Radar Online allegedly between Rep. Weiner and more importantly, how did they verify them?

6/10 Radar Online "exclusive":

A fifth woman, Traci Nobles, has been discovered to have had sexual communication with digital Don Juan, Rep. Anthony Weiner and has exclusively obtained emails between the two of them.

.... has confirmed the authenticity of the emails.


Nobles declined to comment when asked by

Nobles and Weiss are friends on Facebook, but I'm unsure when that happened.

On September 24, after I noted to Gennette Cordova via Twitter that Weiner spoke to her - and allegedly Ginger Lee - but not the women he actually sent explicit pictures and sexted with (Traci Nobles, Meagan Broussard and Lisa Weiss), she agreed that it was an "interesting point."

New York Times reporter Ashley Parker mysteriously interviewed Rep. Anthony Weiner on May 18 - a "sunny morning" at Coffee Shop, in Union Square - for a story that The New York Times never mentioned or quoted from until it was published after the underwear tweet, but before Weiner resigned on June 7.

On May 19, RepWeiner tweeted, "@ashleyrparker doing a story on my tweets for NYT. #PrintedWordIsDead at 9:52 AM from his Blackberry.

May 18 was the same exact day that fake teenager Starchild111 claimed she was unfollowed by Rep. Weiner after asking him to the prom; the same day one #BornFreeCrew member asked another, "Did that thing ever surface? I gotta go to work;" the same day that Meagan Broussard allegedly talked on the phone to Weiner and was sent two photos, including the one showing an erect penis; and the same day that a Republican contacted Drudge and Andrew Breitbart on Broussard's behalf: See Greg Beato's Soundbitten for May 18 dateline, but there are other Weinergate-related events I've noted at my Twitter account that happened that day such as the real teenager who followed Weiner calling the fake teenager a "psycho."

In one of over thirty tweets Andrew Breitbart sent to me on August 10 in response to Weinergate questions, he told me that he personally called Broussard's intermediary and left a voice message, but he didn't specify if it was on May 18, the same day he was contacted.

At Soundbitten, Beato blogged:

In Twitter exchanges with Ron Brynaert on 08/10/11, Breitbart says that Broussard's intermediary contacted Breitbart "by email 1 week-plus before infamous RT. Then I called & left VM. He called next day. Took week to get to Megyn." (Source: Twitter).

Then he expands on his response and answers additional questions from Brynaert with this series of tweets: Tweet: "I've never met Megyn or her friend in person. Megyn doesn't seem political. Her friend may be. I didnt/dont care if he is or not." Tweet:: "Always said 'friend' of Meagan emailed in advance & we followed up. I don't know his name. But Meagan said she's friends w him." Tweet: "Don't remember his name. Once I was in contact with Meagan, he was disposable! Hope he doesn't take that personally!" Tweet: "I have no idea if he contacted me on May 18 because she asked him to. Didn't ask." Tweet: "1st time spoke to MB was FriJune3. Spoke to him SatMay28 for brief moment then on TuesMay31. Thats it. Never met either in person." Tweet: "He contacted me on 18th. We followed up but didnt take too seriously. Then @patriotusa76 RT triggered frantic calling of the guy." Tweet:"Limited resources. One of my trusted associates had convo. If he had delivered goods woulda been different story." Tweet: "No, just wrote to you we had contact between then. Not me. And was put in 'low priority' bin. Conspiracy that!"

After the New York Times finally published Parker's interview with Weiner, conservative pundit Michelle Malkin Tweeted, "NYTimes reporter: Hey, look, I sat on an intvu w/Rep. #skeevy for 3 wks. Guess it's safe to run now!"

New York Times reporter Jennifer Preston - who I worked on the fake Weinergate teen story with but who has ignored me since late June after she asked me to defend our work on Twitter and I was subsequently targeted by hackers - tweeted, "Before @repweiner was publicly caught sending "the photo" @ashleyparker caught him here."

The New York Times should explain why they sat on the interview for so long.

Parker has ignored multiple questions I have asked her on Twitter about May 18, including the time she last saw Weiner, which is crucial since he reportedly called Broussard that afternoon from his New York office. If Weiner was hacked by political tricksters, it would be advantageous to have a reporter be able to vouch that he was in the city on the same day he was sending nude photos.
