(Newser) – Following his inconclusive media blitz, Anthony Weiner yesterday said he was done talking about that crotch shot. CBS 2 political reporter Marcia Kramer still wasn't feeling quite satisfied, though, and decided to pay him a visit at his Capitol Hill office. But instead of getting answers, she got the cops called on her. CBS New York reports that when Kramer initially walked into Weiner's office, doors were shut and she was largely ignored, until press secretary David Arnold emerged.

After telling Arnold she just wanted Weiner to make a comment directed to his constituents, Arnold replied, "I don’t think you can say he hasn’t said anything to his constituents. He spoke for nine hours yesterday." Kramer disagreed: "But not to anyone in New York. You know, this is the sort of in-the-bunker in the capitol, not to anyone in New York." Kramer then left—but Capitol police were called. One officer explained that "if you go to an office and are asked to leave, you can be placed under arrest." Kramer replied, with certitude, we're guessing: "But I wasn’t refusing to leave." Quips Andrew Stiles at the National Review, "I guess when Weiner said no more questions, he meant no more [expletive deleted] questions."

Not Worth Anyones Time... I cannot recall Anthony ever being a "family values" guy.

If it's not him, then just say so. Stop all the inconclusive talking and be straight for once. Because his didn't seek help from the law about the hacking, because he didn't straight forward say that is not me, because he made jokes instead of being honest and direct and because he needed to investigate to determine whether the photo is of him, many are not satisfied with his "talking about the crotch shot". You have to do more than talk. You have to say something meaningful. I don't know what the truth is, but I sure don't feel like I am being told the whole truth or have heard the full story yet. Until then, I really can't say one way or the other if I still support him or not. Maybe that is just what he is hoping and that sooner or later we all will forget and maybe forgive.
