But one fact which is not up for debate is that the Washington State College student was busted for under age drinking in the past.

Meanwhile, Cordova continues to defend Weiner and appears to have become agitated at the attention she has received since the scandal broke.

Taking to her Twitter account Wednesday to vent her frustration she wrote: “All of the people retweeting the link about the other ‘young luscious girls’ being followed by AW on Twitter, you should be ashamed.”

Following up with: “It’s so hard not to cuss out some of you losers @ing me. Really.”

“I have seen myself labeled as the ‘Femme Fatale of Weinergate,’ ‘Anthony Weiner’s 21-year-old coed mistress’ and ‘the self-proclaimed girlfriend of Anthony Weiner.’ … All of this is so outlandish that I don’t know whether to be p***ed off or amused, quite frankly,” she said.

The online drama began last Friday when a lewd crotch shot image of a man in tight fitting briefs appeared in Weiner’s Twitter stream addressed to Cordova but visible to all 40,000 of his Twitter followers.

The New York Congressman, who is married to Hilary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin, reacted angrily when he was questioned by reporters about the scandal and maintains that his Twitter account was hacked into.

However, as previously reported Weiner has yet to report the alleged hacker incident to law enforcement, and despite announcing he has hired legal representation to deal with the incident, Weiner’s spokesperson was unable to provide an attorney’s name.
