Weinergate Needs A Slightly NSFW Drink(ing Game)

Last week it was nude celebrity photos; this week, it’s nude political figure photos. On May 27, a questionable image of US Congressman Anthony Weiner surfaced on (of all places) Twitter, leading to a political sex scandal that has since become known as “Weinergate.” You’d think that by this point, politicians would have learned to keep it in their pants, but alas, this seems not to be the case. In any event, Weinergate has taken the country on by storm, while meanwhile, all I can do is laugh at the unfortunate fact that this particular sex scandal involves a man fittingly named “Weiner.” Need a rundown of the facts? Here they are, made even more entertaining by the addition of your booze of choice (WARNING: NSFW):
