Weiner Under Pressure To Quit Mayoral Race

Actually, he seems like a good fit for New York

|

The pressure is increasing on former congressman Anthony Weiner to drop out of the New York City mayor's race after his acknowledgment of another round of lewd online exchanges with women.

Weiner held a news conference Tuesday admitting that he continued to engage in inappropriate online chats even after he was forced to resign from Congress in 2011 because he had sent graphic messages — including lewd photos of himself — to women via Twitter.

But, with his wife by his side, Weiner said the bad behavior was behind him and he intends to stay in the mayor's race. Ten days ago, polls showed him narrowly leading the race for the Democratic nomination over City Council Speaker Christine Quinn.

  1. I expect Weiner will remain rock hard and continue to behave perfectly erectly despite the throbbing of the purple headed media.

    1. Oh, the missed opportunity!

  2. At this point, the longer he stays in the race, the more humiliated he becomes, and the less likely we are to suffer another comeback attempt.

    He and Spitzer are typical Top Men. Total narcissists who know how you should behave, believe they were born booted and spurred to guide you, and, of course, know that those rules don’t apply to Top Men, and that they can’t be judged by the same standards as are applied to the proles.
