Schieffer: Weiner a 'New-age Flasher'

CBS's "Face The Nation" host Bob Schieffer discusses Anthony Weiner's sexting scandal, which has rocked his candidacy for New York City mayor:

“About the Anthony Weiner story that hasn't been said before - actually, several things. One, it is not funny. It is sickening. Two, it is important. The mayor of New York is not only the most powerful municipal post in America but because New York is so big and is the media capital of the world, the mayor of New York occupies a bully pulpit, second in bullyishness only to that of the White House.”

“The rest of us may not like it, but what the mayor of New York says matters far beyond the New York city limits, which is why someone with Anthony Weiner's problem has no business there and should leave the race.”

“He is a new-age flasher who has traded the traditional raincoat that can be opened to show his wares, for a digital camera that enables him to expose himself for the world, a dubious technological achievement. Why would anyone put themselves and their loved ones through something like this, I wouldn’t want to know.”
