“Carlos Danger” for NYC Mayor

Weiner admits to XXX online chats with woman for 6 months after resigning from Congress because of sext scandal; won't drop out of race


Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted today he had another extended, raunchy online sexual relationship with a young woman — just months after resigning in disgrace from Congress in a sexting scandal. But he won't be dropping out of the race. And his wife, Huma Abedin, is standing by him. In a hasty scheduled joint press conference Abedin, Weiner said he will forge ahead with the campaign despite the latest sex scandal. Weiner insisted that Huma knew all the details of the new revelations and insisted it's "behind" them.
Comment: Letterman's goto be thinking ... the gift that just keeps on giving


  1. NYTimes Mr. Weiner and the Elusive Truth:

    At some point, the full story of Anthony Weiner and his sexual relationships and texting habits will finally be told. In the meantime, the serially evasive Mr. Weiner should take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City.

    ... It’s up to Mr. Weiner if he wants to keep running, to count on voters to forgive and forget and hand him the keys to City Hall. But he has already disqualified himself.

  2. If there's any situation that illustrates that those who choose to run for public office have a ...different mindset than most, this is it. The quest for that power is unbelievable. Who willingly puts himself or his family through this? His lack of shame is unbelievable.

  3. On Huma: Why does Huma Abedin put up with Weiner?

    Comment: My wife asked me yesterday (on ride home from work), "what would make a guy do something like that?". Answer: Don't know

  4. The whole thing reminds me of the inexplicable way Hillary Clinton has stood by Bill. I can see forgiveness for one affair or two. This is a pattern and it's clear Weener is not repentant. Time to cut one's losses.

  5. NYTimes: Account of Weiner’s Conversation Fits Pattern of Online Exchanges

    Not long after Mr. Weiner resigned from Congress, the 22-year-old woman reached out to express her disappointment in him.

    Mr. Weiner responded and, within a week, their exchanges veered from politics to sex, with the pair trading dozens of explicit photographs, said Nik Richie, the editor of The Dirty, the blog that first documented the exchanges.

    That account suggests that Mr. Weiner’s interactions with the woman, a partisan Democrat from Indiana who thought of him as a hero, fit his longstanding pattern. In rapid and reckless fashion, he sought to transform informal conversations with female fans into graphically sexual exchanges, frequently laced with lewd language and bawdy images, the women have said in interviews.

    The woman, Mr. Richie said, told him that during their months-long relationship, Mr. Weiner had discussed his plans to run for mayor with her, though it is unclear when that might have been.

    According to the woman, Mr. Weiner had told her he loved her and discussed the possibility of securing a place for them to meet in Chicago.

  6. My view too: New York Dems growing weary of Weiner:

    Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-N.Y.) warned that his behavior is “a total distraction” from the important issues facing New York.

    Sal Albanese, an underdog in the Democratic primary, said “from the moment he entered the race, I’ve said that Tony Weiner was unfit to serve as mayor of our great city.”

    Nadler disagreed. The outspoken New York veteran politician characterized Weiner as a “serial liar” who “should withdraw from the race.”
