Here We Go Again - More Weinergate!

Here We Go Again!

If Anthony Weiner is willing to drag his wife and family through the mud to prove a point, he would do the same to New York City as Mayor. New York City does not need that type of a person in the top position. 

It has come to the surface that Weiner, after his 2011 resignation continued to engage in an inappropriate relationship with a 22-year old women. Weiner is accused of sexting and trading inappropriate pictures. This went on for six months post his resignation. Let me repeat and rephrase... Anthony Weiner was busted, lost his job and almost lost his marriage, but that wasn't enough. For six months following the self imposed monsoon, he continued to engage in the activities that caused the monsoon. Does this situation not smell like Weiner has some serious problems that need to be addressed in a psychiatrists office, not City Hall?

From Weiner's original written statement and press conference:

"I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have." 

"As I have said in the past, these things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress."

"With 49 days left until primary day, perhaps I'm surprised more things didn't come out sooner."

So essentially, Weiner is telling us to get over ourselves, because he already told us that he was a scumbag. Why are we acting surprised? In the words of Shonda Rhimes "when someone tells you who they are, believe them." (Yes, I'm aware Shonda stole these words from someone else) Weiner is telling us that he is not fit to lead. Hell he may not even be fit to be a good husband, but that's for Huma to decide. I'm not for one second going to believe that this young woman is the only person he was sexting with (he eluded that she wasn't), nor will I believe that he quit cold turkey six months after his resignation. I'm willing to bet money that his behavior continued right up until a few months ago, when he decided to run for Mayor.

My gripe with Weiner is his lack of judgement. He knew that this stuff was sitting in his closet and would be grounds for exposure. Why put your wife and family through this mess again?? It all seems mean, selfish and extremely inconsiderate.

Weiner needs to drop out of the race immediately  because he shouldn't have entered in the first place. 

Share your thoughts.....

1) Are you surprised that more details have surfaced surrounding Anthony Weiner's indiscretions?
2) Does Weiner's behavior give us any inclination on his ability to lead and govern?
3) Should Weiner remain in the Mayoral Race?
4) Do you think Weiner really stopped sexting six months post his resignation? or do you think he still continues today?
