Barbara Walters: If Sarah Palin ‘Can Ride Around on Her Bus,’ Anthony Weiner Can Stay in Congress

(By Jeff Poor, The Daily Caller) - As scandalous revelations about Rep. Anthony Weiner continue to surface, the Democratic New York congressman continues to have defenders.

On Monday’s broadcast of “The View,” co-host Barbara Walters went to bat for Weiner and proposed that the picture in question was intended for his wife and not for whom it was sent.

“First of all, I have my own theory about why he took that picture, if indeed he did take that picture,” Walters said. “This is my theory – this doesn’t mean that it is right. He is married to this beautiful woman, whom I know, who a lot of us know, who the chief of staff to Hillary Clinton and she travels a lot. And it may be that he took that picture and sent it to his wife to say this is how much I miss you. That’s possible.”
