2. Anthony Weiner
"I brought pain to people I care about the most and the people who believed in me, and for that I'm deeply sorry.¿
Weiner seemed genuine. It was also one massive overshare. After saying how sorry he was for lying about inappropriate relationships with women other than his wife (sexting, beefcake gym photos, not-actual-sex-but-totally-suggesting-sex-could-happen messages), the former congressman, resigning from office, outlined all the ways he talked with women he met online during the past few years: Twitter, Facebook, email and an old-fashioned Zack Morris cell phone (we assume). Oh, and saying he had been hacked? He made that up. Weinergate, welcome to the lexicon.
