    mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, who resigned from Congress in 2011 amid a sexting scandal, admitted Tuesday to more sexually charged Internet shenanigans.
    Weiner, who is married to an aide to Hillary Clinton, issued a statement after a gossip website called The Dirty published an interview with an anonymous woman who claimed she had a six-month online relationship with him that continued after his earlier online activities were exposed.

    Weiner.

    The name alone answers your question about being fit for office. ;)

    By his stats alone, he'd have a better run in teh pr0n industry.

    When this first came to light, he said there were other exchanges out there. Shocking that they'd come out this close to the primary he's running in. :rolleyes:

    That's not the point bro. He continued to do this crap AFTER getting busted the first time.

    my answer would be I do not get a **** who they ****. Now his morals are crap but then again show me a politician with good morals.

    Now it is different than some others who scream family values who pull this **** off.

    If only eunuch should be allowed to hold public office, we could avoid most, or perhaps all, of these sorts of problems.

    Why care about what someone does in his personal life? As long as he is professionally good, I see no problem with his sexting, unless it becomes harassment.

    Weiner's such an amateur. Now Clinton, that's a pro. He didn't need any online crap to get his, and they still couldn't touch him after he got caught. :D

    I prefer that my political leaders have a little more personal discipline.

    Obviously, being astoundingly stupid is not now, nor has it ever been, a disqualification for public office.

    Get caught once,you might give careful consideration to stopping whatever you are doing. Keep doing it, and you are a moron of massive proportions.

    BTW: I could give a crap less whether he is a Republican or a Democrat...he's as dumb as a bag of doorknobs.

    I agree. He is dumb and in my book that's a disqualification for public office.

    And i'm a Democrat.

    I think Luis Hazard is a cool sobriquet ;-)

    Me too.

    "Jaime Evil" is such an easy target now.

    (Hypocrisy is the tribute (homage) which vice pays (renders) to virtue.
    --LaRochefoucauld

    But, apparently, not a disqualification for trying. And, here's betting that he doesn't receive zero votes, either.

    Gotta love the hypocrisy of the NY tabloids with opinion pages calling for Weiner to drop out of the race while they have no problem making dick jokes on the front page to sell papers.

    While I may want to shake my head at Anthony Weiner's actions, much like Clinton the only one who really has any justification for anger or disappointment is his wife.

    The problem is that the public in an all knowing all anonymous mass likes to appear as the moral superior, but I bet there are many that would condemn Anthony for his actions publicly, yet have engaged in similar actions privately.
