FTFA: a little over a year after the former congressman was forced to resign from a sexting scandal in June 2011.

Pretty sure it's been a bit more than "a little over a year" since June 2011.

Soup4Bonnie: Sending unsolicited pictures of your junk to women online when you're married with a kid on the way and then lying about it for days is pretty disgusting.

You can go away now, Anthony.


He didn't send unsolicited pictures to anybody. Everything he did was consensual. Call me when he breaks a law.

I can't believe he made his wife make a statement on his behalf! Hiding behind a skirt is too kind a charge for that kind of cowardice. He never stopped doing this stupid stuff. That means that IF he is elected he is subject to blackmail which makes him unqualified for office.

   Denial is his standard operating procedure. Look at how many questions he dodged today and how long it took him to admit the truth when he was a Congressman. Suppose he inadvertently tweets a minor a picture of his junk. Think he won't do anything to prevent that little gem from seeing the light of day?

  Any way you slice it the guy is not qualified for elective office.

I would agree with you if I thought there was a surfeit of bright connected candidates for public office. But alas I dont think beggars can be choosers. Most male politicians seem to have a penis problem. I dont have to marry the guy.

Gennette Cordova didn't ask for pictures of his junk, so yeah, sort of unsolicited and not very consensual.

TuteTibiImperes: Come on dude, couldn't you have kept it in your pants after the first scandal?  I realize this isn't recent, but he has to know his opponents are going to try to string him up for this.  It's a shame he did it and that it came out, he would've been a good mayor.


Yes, clearly he has amazing judgment.  He's shown he repeatedly deserves to control one of the most powerful cities on the planet.

Penis.
 
2013-07-23 06:19:31 PM  
So he farks around on his (pregnant) wife (and really, he was "only" sexting with women?  I've got some beachfront property in Tulsa for you)....lies about it, then tearily asks for forgiveness and understanding and begs his wife for another chance and blah blah blah....then he does it AGAIN!!  And people still think he's some great guy or he hasn't committed a "crime" so it's no big deal....interesting morals some of you have there....But let me ask this.  He was presumably much more "committed" to his wife, right?  I mean he did marry her, promised to love,honor, cherish, all that nonsense.  Had a personal connection to her....yet he apparently had no issues with lying to and embarrassing her on an international scale.....you think he would have even a glimmer of a second thought about farking over constituents whom he has never met, be it criminal or otherwise?
 
2013-07-23 06:19:32 PM  
He's using the "I told you there would be more of this coming out" excuse months AFTER the fact? As in he was STILL doing this after getting busted the first time? Or do I have the timeline wrong?

Even by politician standards, this dude's arrogance is astounding.
 
2013-07-23 06:22:40 PM  
Assuming the timeline is correct and he did this a good year or so after he resigned for doing this very same thing, the guy is a self-destructive moron. A brilliant self-destructive moron, but a self-destructive moron nonetheless. If this is from before the scandal, then it's a non-news story.

It will be interesting to see if this affects the race, or if voters are sick of hearing about this shiat and he ends up getting a sympathy vote.

Personally, the first time I could forgive pretty easily - he never touched any of them, it was all fantasy. It crossed the line, especially for a public figure, but morally I don't think it was any worse than a married guy calling a phone sex line or visiting a strip club.

After begging for forgiveness and then going right back and doing it again though, it's a lot harder to get over this time.  If having dirty talk sessions and sending risque photos back and forth with women he meets is that important to him, he needs to just file for divorce and become a single guy so that he can go ahead and do that.  I wouldn't have trouble trusting a single guy that was sexually active and involved in sexting, but since he's married, it does come off as if he has trouble keeping his promises.

2013-07-23 06:42:38 PM  
Articles like this are why I really hate HuffPo anymore. They quote a porn site that calls Weiner a "sex predator" like he's a criminal or stalking someone under age. She was 22 and they were in a consensual relationship. Was it built on a lie? Yes. Was Weiner a dick for lying to her and having an affair? Yes. Does this make him a sexual predator?

If it does, I have a long list of other names to offer up to the sex offender's registry.

quickdraw: While this is icky and embarrassing I dont think it has anything to do with whether or not he can handle being a mayor.


I'd say his inability to control himself despite the consequences is a big questionmark. This is (IMO) no different that an athelete busted for pot who knows if he gets busted again he will lose millions of dollars. If you can't say to yourself "ya know. I can probably back off for a while", you're not very smart, not in control of yourself, and shouldn't be in control of other people.

Isn't it awfully nice to have a penis
Isn't it frightfully good to have a dong
It's swell to have a stiffy
It's divine to own a dick
From the tiniest little tadger
To the world's biggest prick
So, three cheers for your Willy or John Thomas
Hooray for your one-eyed trouser snake
Your piece of pork, your wife's best friend
Your Percy, or your cock
You can wrap it up in ribbons
You can slip it in your sock
But don't take it out in public
Or they will stick you in the dock
And you won't come back
 
2013-07-23 06:50:43 PM  
Not to mention that he offered her a Chicago condo to delete their correspondence. So he was willing to spend larges sums of money and BRIBE one of his internet girlfriends to keep this under wraps but now he is "sorry" and it is "behind him?"

   Look for the dummies to elect this dirt bag and see New York city have to pay out millions in a future sexual harassment cases. Yet there are STILL folks who claim with a straight face that Wiener is a "brilliant" guy.

No he was stupid then and he is stupid now. Just because he may be politically knowledgeable does not ALSO mean that he is NOT also an idiot.

He gets caught once, gets his hot wife to forgive him, decides to go back into politics and STILL does this shiat all over again. His blinding arrogance has made him a farking moron. That's not the kind of guy we need in charge of anything more important than a hot dog cart.

  So what do you make of his attempted bribe of his internet hottie by offering her a condo in Chicago? Even if the sex isn't an issue isn't the fact that was willing to engage in illegality to secure her silence mean anything?

  He has bad character and he lies to and attempts to bribe constituents. Do you STILL feel we should just accept it and move on? If attempted bribery doesn't disqualify you for office what does?

UPDATE: Weiner has released a statement responding to the allegations, characterizing them as partially true.

No!  Noooo!  You don't say that!  You don't admit to something like that!

How the Hell are we supposed to have two months of Internet Photoshop Experts poring over EXIF headers and shadows and publishing their "Analysis" on Daily Kos if you just go ahead and admit it right from the start?

I want to see a parade of pseudoscience from people who cite "literally decades of experience" using computer programs, and point to their degrees in graphic design.  I want to see the sudden burst of web traffic when someone points out that the image is upside-down, so it can't be real because you can't hold a phone upside down.   I want to see the blogosphere proudly declare victory over exposing a hoax, and then later freak out about how a bunch of anonymous bloggers linking to each other can somehow arrive at the wrong conclusion.

See, this is why we can't have nice Internet things.

Her statement from that article

There have never been any inappropriate exchanges between Anthony Weiner and myself, including the tweet/picture in question, which had apparently been deleted before it reached me. I cannot answer the questions that I do not have the answers to. I am not sure whether or not this letter will alleviate any future harassment. I also do not have a clear understanding as to how or why exactly I am involved in this fiasco. I do know that my life has been seriously impacted by speculation and faulty allegations. My reputation has been called into question by those who lack the character to report the facts.

Well, he's already admitted it this time.  I guess at this point his only options are to withdraw from the race, make a statement saying "yes, I thought with my dick again, but that doesn't mean that I can't be a great leader for you on policy and politics, let's focus on the issues now..", or I guess an outside chance third option where he declares a press conference, whips it out and says "Have a good look, now, can we move on?"

I read a book about that. People don't realize that sociopaths have many of the characteristics of those who hold lofty positions, CEOs, politicians etc. The most utilized one is the lack of conscience. I'll try to remember the name of the book.
