Wiener Denies Being A Sex Tourist

With a name like Wiener I guess no one should be surprised that this guy is a big fan of Angeles City:

A Bernalillo County Commissioner with a history of making inappropriate sexual comments in Albuquerque may be in more trouble half way around the world.

A Seattle photographer, who has been documenting sex tourism in the Philippines, told KOB’s 4 On Your Side team he had a disturbing conversation with Commissioner Michael Wiener in Angeles City, the second largest sex tourism city in the world.

Photographer John Keatley has posted several pictures he took of Wiener standing with four scantily clad bar girls last month on his Internet blog.

Weiner said nothing inappropriate happened and that he and his girlfriend were just walking through the district, waiting to catch a plane out of the city.

Keatley claimed he heard Wiener make a racy comment to the girls. “He basically said right when he got up to have his picture taken with the girls, ‘Hey don’t touch my penis… Ah hah just kidding – you can touch it.’”

Wiener denied saying that.

“I may have made a comment like don’t get too close to my girlfriends here, but I didn’t mention anything like that,” Wiener said.

Keatley also claimed the commissioner also told him to relax and enjoy the ‘walking street.’

“He told us what a good time could be had in Angeles City if you just opened yourself up to it,” Keatley said.  [KOB.com via reader tip]

So have any ROK Drop readers in the PI spotted this guy walking around Angeles City before?

    What happens in Angeles City stays in Angeles City.

    It is not the custom of visitors to that town to publicly gossip about others unless they crossed the lines, such as messing with kids or scamming and ripping off others.

    That said, it is not very likely anyone would know or remember him unless he was a very frequent visitor or made a spectacle of himself. However, if he did offer that photographer those suggestions it implies he knew his way around. But, if he was there with his fiance it was not very likely he was getting into much more than tourism.

    It sounds like the photographer was trying to sell a story, his pictures and his website by over-sensationalizing what happened and Angeles City itself. It is not that much different than some of the GI villes in South Korea were 15 years ago.

    JoeC wants to defend Government Officials with unfortunate names spending money from taxpayers on “adult entertainment”. Fine. We still have the freedom to express our opinions.

    However, the idea that someone could be in a place like that with wife or fiance and only be strictly monogamous is a bit naive and anachronistic, don’t you think? One would need to know more about the Commissioner before rushing to defend him or the blogger.

    Oh, wait… We do… “A Bernalillo County Commissioner with a history of making inappropriate sexual comments in Albuquerque may be in more trouble half way around the world.”

    One does not blame the Commissioner for having a daughter (and an ex-wife?) in the Philippines (divorces can happen to all sorts of folks); but he did seem to know an awful lot about the tawdry bits…

    The name Wiener isn’t funny at all. It just means Viennese. The German name of Vienna, the capital of Austria, is Wien.

    Who cares what this guy did…Sex tourism happens. Now days it is better to get a hooker than a mistress.

    It’s a safe bet that most of those who are 4 stars now have spent some time there and places like it sometime in there service career.

    I did happen to come across naked pics of the girls in the picture…. :D Not sure if it’s appropriate to post it here. :oops:

    So his alibi is just unbelievable.

    Angeles is known to be a whore city. If he were in Manila, his alibis would be more believable.

    That those same women would come forward in a video seems very unusual and suspicious to me. I’ll wait for a more reliable source.

    For those who don’t know, for sources for expats wanting to know what’s going on in Angeles City there are at least two.

    Margaritaville Station has a somewhat daily posting of News Items from Angeles on the upper right side of the website’s front page. Then there is the Harry the Horse newsletter that comes out at the beginning of each month. “Harry” is very reliable and knows everyone of influence so he has the means to separate facts from rumors and BS. If there is any there there to any of those stories “Harry” will let us know next month.

    BTW of a Korean interest you will find out from the Margaritaville Station News Items that in the last 10 days, four South Koreans died in Angeles. Three of them appear to have been suicides and the other was murdered.

    @8- Like JoeC says I don’t find what these women said to the website to be very reliable. At the very least though this Wiener guy does seem to have experience with area even if he isn’t actively no longer taking part in it.

    No, Liz. Arnold Schwarzenneger is a Thaler, not a Wiener. Check his bio at Wikipedia.

    @13:
    Generic politician involved in a generic sex scandal, possibly being overblown (no pun intended) to distract from a different scandal.

    That’s my take-away. Yours may vary, depending upon your own personal goals and agenda. :lol:

    Funny how two different politicians with the same last name (Weiner) get in the news for sex troubles. :lol:
