  •  NYC Mayor - Anthony Weiner a NATIONAL Dem embaras (7+ / 0-)

    If Weiner becomes NYC Mayor, he will be an embarrassment to Democrats nationally.  I hope he loses.

    His recent admission that he continued his sleazy behavior after he resigned from Congress shows that he has no self control.

    He continued to cheat on his wife - and that is an issue between them.  Maybe they have an "arrangement" as some political marriages appear to have that lets him do things that other spouses would not tolerate.  But he hurts not only his wife but others if he is in public office.

    But even if his wife is agreeable to such behavior (and at least from their public speeches that does not appear to be the case), most voters are not.  Whether we like it or not, he will be a prominent Democrat - and will be ridiculed in multiple campaigns, radio shows, etc.

    Democrats do not need his baggage (no pun intended).

    He has no self control - and if he is elected even after his latest admission, he may be even more inclined to continue his behavior pattern.

      This is NYC we're talking about.

      You know, the city that had a mayor who went through a horrible divorce, had his mistress living in the mayor's mansion - and he was a REPUBLICAN.

      What Weiner does in his personal life is his personal life. As long as it doesn't involve unwilling and/or underage people, drugs or shady deals, it shouldn't matter much.

        Don't forget dear Rudy dressing up like Marilyn Monroe; his picture in drag in the paper was truly gag-worthy in every sense.  And had technology back then been like what it is now, who knows how many more photos of him would have emerged.
