Breaking news on the "Weiner Scandal" doesn't seem to be letting up anytime soon as new revelations come out regarding tweets that went back and forth between the embattled Congressman and a 17 year old girl in Delaware. Since the girl is a minor, her name is being withheld and remains anonymous.

The 46-year-old congressman stated that he had online contact with a 17-year-old girl but said there was nothing inappropriate or salacious about it. Police visited the home of the girl and interviewed her and her parents. They also confiscated her computer. Generally, authorities do not confiscate a computer or hard-drives unless they have reason to believe that digital forensic evidence exists that would indicate a crime had been committed. We will have to wait and see. In the meantime, it is likely that more and more revelations will emerge concerning the online activities of this very publicly visible figure.

Today, the heat continues to be turned up on the congressman as The House Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi, called on Weiner to resign citing the growing concern among Democrats that his online exchanges with women had become a distraction for the party.

The need for anonymity, especially in a case where a minor is involved remains a valuable and necessary tool of a civilized society. The ability to remain anonymous for ones protection or to be able to communicate by sending an anonymous email or anonymous letter is a fundamental right of all American citizens.
