Rep. Charlie Rangel (D., N.Y.) tells NRO that he stands behind Rep. Anthony Weiner “100 percent” as the Twitter drama unfolds in Washington.

Rangel, who has been beset by scandalous charges in recent years, says that Weiner is likely the victim of a smear campaign. “It’s some kind of political game they’re playing,” he says. “I don’t know who did it, but that’s what they’re doing.”

Seems like he’d at least recognize the skivvies. You’ve got to look at a lot of crotch shots to forget what your own looks like.

Oddly enough though, he’s still sticking to the “hacker” story:

Update V: Remember who officiated Weiner’s wedding?
