Rep. Weiner: I did not post lewd photo

(CNN)- A liberal Democratic congressman who came under fire for a lewd photo that briefly appeared on his Twitter account over the weekend told CNN Wednesday that he did not post the image.

Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner spoke to CNN's Wolf Blitzer a day after a contentious exchange with reporters in which he refused to directly answer any questions about the picture.

On Wednesday he said he had hired a law firm to look into the matter. But he declined to directly answer whether he appeared in the photo.

"Photos can be manipulated. Photos can be of one thing and changed to something else. We're going to try to get to the bottom of what happened," he said. The photo showed the lower body of a man wearing underwear.

    Rep. Weiner has lost all credibility! He has bad judgement and bad character.. No one is blowing this out of proportion but Rep. Weiner...

    I just have one question about Anthony Weiner's admitting to sending that photo and his apology...Could he have sent other photos like that on Twitter using direct message that haven't been revealed yet? I mean, to me I think if that photo had gone through by DM on twitter and had stayed between him and the woman, he'd been going on about his life without all this happening. Sorry for what...hitting the wrong key on your blackberry when sending the pic?
