NY Rep: Weiner 'Needs Serious Psychiatric Help'

Rep. Jerry Nadler, a committed New York Democrat, stated on Wednesday in unequivocal terms that he wants Anthony Weiner to drop out of the New York City mayoral race and see a psychiatrist for his lewd behavior and subsequent serial lying. 

Nadler told the press:

I think he should withdraw, I think he needs serious psychiatric help. He should take care of his own problems and let New York figure its policies and its mayor. I mean, to have done it again after what we went through in the resignation, he has shown himself to be a serial liar. You can't believe him, and he's also shown monumentally bad judgment. How can you trust his judgment as a mayor?"

Nadler obviously didn’t read the April New York Times puff piece in which Weiner said he went through therapy.

Nadler, who represents much of Manhattan and Brooklyn, also took a shot at former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who is running for NYC Comptroller:

I think that the problems that Anthony Weiner — like Eliot Spitzer — exhibited while in office, and after, pose fundamental problems to the serious governance of New York. They both exhibit a fundamental dishonesty, they both lied repeatedly, and show monumental errors of judgment.

Weiner, seemingly unfazed by his latest controversy, sent a letter to those behind his candidacy, in which he wrote:

This campaign isn't about me. It's about a great city that is beginning to lose its mantle as the Capital of the Middle Class. It's about the challenge of finding affordable housing, a good job with benefits and a public school that attracts the greatest teachers and produces the smartest kids. This race for Mayor isn't about me. It's about you. And I'll never lose sight of that.
