McMorris Rodgers, Weiner get together for drugs

Although probably not what you're thinking. (Get your mind out of the gutter.)

Reps. Cathy McMorris and Anthony Weiner co-wrote a guest column in Roll Call, a Washington, D.C., publication, about the importance of independent pharmacies in cities, towns and rural America and explained three key pieces of legislation they are pushing this year a co-chairwoman and co-chairman of the newly re-established Community Pharmacy Caucus. A copy of the guest column can be found here.

But maybe this co-chairmanship could help Weiner, a New York Democrat, out in another area.

Weiner is probably better known for something other than making sure Mr. Gower's Drug Store stays open in Bedford Falls. He has gotten much attention in the last week for allegedly sending a photo, via Twitter, of his underwear (with him in it) to a woman in Washington state who is not his wife. Last week, Weiner said his Twitter account was hacked and  he didn't send the photo, but he couldn't say for sure that the photo wasn't him. It was been a gift to late night comedians.

Today he admitted that he did, after all, send that photo to the woman in Washington, as well as some other photos to other women, also not his wives, on Facebook.

McMorris Rodgers is, among other things, the GOP House Caucus's tech guru. She was among the first on Twitter and is constantly pushing other Republicans into social media cyberspace. She ought to be able to help Weiner brace up the security for his Twitter account and go over some tips on what to send and what not to send, an explanation how something sent out on Twitter never stays private for very long.
