Anthony Weiner Has Public Meltdown over Insult

Voter calls him scumbag; things escalate


New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner melted down in a heated exchange with a voter on Wednesday, the latest signal of a crumbling campaign less than a week before the primaries.

The meltdown came in the neighborhood of Boro Park in Brooklyn, where Weiner was confronted by a Jewish voter. The voter started jabbing at Weiner and called him a "scumbag" as he walked out of an establishment, something to which Weiner objected.
