ambassador_ahab: mongbiohazard: Original scandal and resignation from congress: May - June of 2011
This: August of last year

So yeah, he pretty much just never stopped.

I'm a big supporter of Weiner, and thought he was a great congressman, and would vote for him if I lived in NYC, but even I agree with these statements.  He never stopped.  That's what this article is basically saying.  If what this girl said is true, this is kind of like the celebrities that go to "rehab" and then are seen drunk at a bar 2 weeks later.

They make the teary-eyed confession or whatever in front of the cameras, promise to change their ways, blah blah, and then go right back to what they were doing before.


Yep. It's just pure, unchecked arrogance.

Personally I think we make too big a deal about sex scandals in general, but I don't even think this is a sex scandal really. This is a guy who already pretty much had his political career ended, and no doubt caused a big rift in his marriage. He made tearful apologies to the public and to his wife, promised to make himself better, and was trying to get a second chance from the public and a new powerful job in elected office....... while simultaneously doing the exact same thing all along that caused him trouble in the first place. It's not like he slipped one night and sexted this chick by accident. And I think we'd all have to be pretty damn naive to think that this is the only chick he's done this with since the original scandal, and that there are none since this one either.

To me this is a clear sign of a guy who just thinks he's so personally special that no rules apply to him like they do other people - that he's better than other people just because he's him. That's the exact opposite of someone who should hold elected office - or even be in charge of any other people ever. I don't want him as my office manager, nevermind my mayor or congressperson.

He should take a lesson from NY's former blind governor Patterson. When confronted with his own personal sex scandal, he replied, "YES. YES I DID. And I'd do it again. So there. We done with this now? Good. Now STFU and GBTW." (paraphrased slightly)

He kinda sucked as governor and was not successful in the next election, but his was the sex scandal response that I have admired the most.

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.

TuteTibiImperes: 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.."


I think it all depends on his wife.  If she leaves him over this he's sunk.  I don't think she will, though.  She's got political ambitions and having your husband as the mayor of New York is a nice feather in your cap.  She's going to go the Hillary route.

Virtuoso80: I'm wondering if the world would be a better place if we just accept that it's natural for people to fark around sometimes. It's sex; it's biologically designed to turn even the most enlightened person into a horny, irrational moron in pursuit of it. Let's just accept it and move on.


This isn't about sex.  This is about the character of a man who lies.

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.

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?

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.

 "A politician should do nothing that he would not want to see reported about him in the next day's newspapers" -- William Jennings Bryan in his book The Price of a Soul published in 1910. True then and truer now.

IlGreven: Remember, kiddies: If you run for political office, you're dooming yourself to missionary only with your wife for the rest of your life.


I don't care if he goes to hot gay-sex orgies every night.  The issue is about dishonesty in my mind.  If he's going to claim he's in a monogamous relationship, then he can't also go doing all this stuff.

Likewise, if he's going to claim he's done with all this crap, then he shouldn't then keep doing it and then run for office.

MrEricSir: hstein3: Um, he admitted it (well, as much as any politician will admit to something in a scandal.)

^ This guy had numerous public affairs, including with the current attorney general of California. Never seemed to put a dent in his political career because he never denied any of it.


Well, the fact that he wasn't cheating on anybody may have something to do with it.  (OK, technically, I think he and his wife are still officially married, but they split up in the 1970s and have lived separately ever since.)  Does anybody really care who a single guy bangs?

He's The Wein.  You can't expect him to keep it in his pants.  It's the source of all of his superpowers.

Well, hey, everyone loves Clinton, so maybe he can power through it.  He just needs to learn how to flash a shiat-eating shameless grin and play the part of the ladies man instead of coming off as smarmy.

Easy for Bill. Scoring a real beege in the WH is a major step up (on the Studly Scale) from posting naughty selfies to someone online who may or may not even really be a girl. Hard to look anything other than smarmy in that case.


Wein and Geraldo ought to exchange nasty naked selfies and then hook up for a he-man

Which is a terrible thought.


Eh, she seems like she could be alright, but IIRC she's been very buddy-buddy with Bloomberg, and it would be a shame if she continued some of his escapades into nanny-state-ism.  Banning large sodas and trying to legislate trans-fat and salt content of restaurant and street food is the kind of stuff that gives progressives a bad name.

I'm usually not a fan of witchhunts based on a person's private life, but this is a special case.  He already went through hell once and didn't have the sense or the self control to stop himself from doing it again a year later, or at least doing it more discreetly.

Making the same exact mistake twice shows poor judgment.

I don't necessarily believe this. Weiner made a lot of powerful enemies by going after Wall St. I wouldn't be surprised if this alleged information was leaked at the exact time Weiner was surging ahead in the mayoral polls. Don't forget who stands to gain the most by seeing him lose. He was a very popular politician in NYC before the scandal and a lot of New Yorkers remember the good things he did as a congressman and before that an assemblyman. That being said I hope this isn't true and he learned his lesson and kept it in his pants.

And a smear suggests an unsubstantiated charge. This is not a smear, this is a factual disclosure of some scummy guy continuing to be scummy while pretending to have reformed and vying for a position of power over many people.
