Anthony Weiner: News and Opinion about Anthony Weiner

Weiner At AARP Forum: 'What Are You Going To Do About It, Grandpa?'

Aug 6, 2013 2:41 PM PT

The Anthony Weiner implosion continues. The NY Post is reporting he blew up at one of his most vocal challengers,  69-year-old candidate George McDonald, at a forum for the American Association for Retired People and derisively called him "Grandpa."

Before the debate, Weiner put a hand on McDonald's back and said hello, prompting McDonald to reply: "I would appreciate if you would never touch me again."

Weiner retorted: "What are you going to do about it, grandpa?" according to two sources.

The feud between the two has been simmering since last week.

At a debate in Laurelton, Queens on Thursday, McDonald called Weiner a "self-pleasuring freak." He said he was embarrassed to tell his 10-year-old granddaughter why Weiner was famous. Weiner replied then by calling McDonald a candidate “chirping at the fringes,” which only fanned the flame of the GOP candidate's temper.

No Sl*tbags: Fake Weiner For Mayor 'Interns Wanted' Flyers Spotted In NYC

Aug 2, 2013 1:10 PM PT

Oh for crying out loud, look what's popping up all around New York City according to the comedy video website,  Funny or Die...

Are you looking for a fall internship? Are you organized? Discreet? Not a snitch? Not a slutbag? Then the Anthony Weiner campaign wants YOU to be a Weiner for Mayor intern, according to flyers reportedly spotted around New York City this week.

Funny or Die posted pics of hysterical (and clearly fake) Weiner for Mayor flyers the comedy website says were posted throughout the city. (By “spotted around Manhattan” they likely mean posted around Manhattan by a Funny or Die staffer.)

Weinerization vs. Akinization

Jul 30, 2013 8:41 PM PT

In response to Republicans Are Weaponizing Weiner Democrats Complain:

That's all pretty rich coming from the party that surgically grafted Todd Akin onto every single Republican running in 2012.  They managed to fuse Akin, Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, and Mitt Romney into Siamese triplets.  But now the poor little dears think it's so terribly, terribly unfair that Republicans would take a page from their playbook and paint Weiner as symbolic of a larger, deeper problem within the Democrat Party.

Republicans Are Weaponizing Weiner Democrats Complain

Jul 30, 2013 5:41 PM PT

As Republicans fight to retake control of the Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, the specter of Bill (BJ) Clinton looms as "a popular, vote-getting, fundraising-powerhouse threat to their aspirations."

Enter Anthony Weiner, whose lewd and lascivious online buffoonery threatens to taint the Clintons and the Democrat party as a whole. Democrats say Republicans want to use Weiner as their secret weapon next year, and they're hopping mad about it.

The Pervert Spiral: Worst Case Scenario About a 'Mayor Anthony Weiner'

Jul 29, 2013 9:15 AM PT

Late last week I used this space to dispel the myth that Anthony Weiner's private life was his own affair and should not concern voters. After all, some argue, if Weiner's wife is willing to forgive, who are we to judge? Well, any behavior that might compromise anyone to a point where they can be blackmailed into doing something against the public interest should always worry voters, and is most certainly "our business."

What should really worry New York City voters, though, is that it is not uncommon for individuals who engage in the kind of reckless behavior Anthony Weiner has confessed to, to seek out even more reckless thrills after the old ones lose their juice.

DiGenova: Weiner Broke Campaign Finance Laws With Bogus 'Hacker' Investigation

Jul 29, 2013 6:59 AM PT

Former US Attorney Joe DiGenova says New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner violated federal campaign laws by using donated funds to pay for a private investigator to hunt down his bogus claim that he had been hacked in 2011. 

The New York Daily News reported this weekend that Weiner's bogus claim from June 2011 was investigated by a high-powered DC firm:  

Weiner ultimately paid a private investigations firm, T&M Protection services, $43,100 from his campaign fund — knowing nobody hacked anything and that he’d sent the image himself.

T&M officials declined to answer questions about what work they did and what they discovered.

It is possible that even more money was spent on the fool’s errand.

At the time, Weiner said he had asked a law firm, BakerHostetler, to look into the matter. Records show his campaign paid BakerHostetler $93,350 for “legal services” between January 2010 and December 2012.

Senor Carlos Danger Past, Present and Future...

Jul 26, 2013 5:20 PM PT

This is not just hubris and narcissism, a violation of the public trust and bad judgment, Anthony Weiner aka CARLOS DANGER is a man with serious problems when it comes to women. How many psychologists would like to ask him why he chose this pseudonym.

We also have to question the judgment of these women also who engage in this type of behavior with one, a public figure and two, someone who behaves as Weiner does. If he takes time to type, read and send such messages, it’s more than an off-hand remark or sex-play talk, it’s deliberate.

Beinart Got It Right About the NY Times

Jul 26, 2013 11:44 AM PT

In response to Beinart: Second Look at Sexting?:

Beinart is probably correct that Weiner is being treated differently because the "tawdry details" are available for public consideration in a way that they were not  when Clinton was the subject of similar stories. Of course the technology to record phone sex has been available for a long time, it just required a little more effort. Texts are easier to save, as Weiner seems unable to learn.

Emily's List Passes on Weiner, Backs Rival

Jul 26, 2013 10:41 AM PT

The leftist, feminazi Emily’s list has taken sides in the New York City Mayor’s race against the embattled dirty sexter, Anthony Wiener. Emily’s List just put out an fundraising ask in support of NYC City Council Speaker Chris Quinn, who was leading in the polls before Weiner jumped into the race and stepped on his Hebrew National.  The fundraising letter calls Weiner-gate Party Deux a “circus” and “embarrassing."

Here is the Emily's List letter-

Beinart: Second Look at Sexting?

Jul 26, 2013 10:12 AM PT

Peter Beinart, writing at the Daily Beast, argues that Anthony Weiner should stay in the race for mayor of New York City (for now). He points out the media's hypocrisy in defending Bill Clinton's far worse behavior (without noting that in attacking Weiner, the media is likewise protecting the Clintons). Perhaps, he argues, the media simply do not understand "sexting," which is becoming more common among younger Americans.

Beinart writes:

According to a 2010 study by the Pew Research Center, only 5 percent of Americans 30–49 admit to having sent a sexually explicit message or image via cell. Among Americans in their 20, it’s 13 percent. As in so many arenas of life, what people once did in person they now do virtually. And for a generation that’s not yet accustomed to them, sexual indiscretions committed virtually seem creepier than the old-fashioned kind.

Weiner Loses Lead in NYC Mayor's Race after New Sexting Scandal Revealed

Jul 25, 2013 10:00 AM PT

According to an NBC4 New York/Marist/WSJ poll, Christine Quinn has now overtaken Weiner in the Mayor's race with a 9% lead.  The poll shows Quinn is ahead with 25% support among Democrat primary voters compared to Weiner's 16%. 

The poll is the first conducted since Weiner admitted to sending salacious internet messages post-congressional resignation. 

"For many Democrats the latest revelations about Anthony Weiner are more of the same, only more so," said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. "Weiner has lost his lead and his negatives are at an all-time high."

The media continues its Huma surge

Jul 25, 2013 4:07 AM PT

Further evidence that the media is working overtime to pull Huma Abedin from beneath the flaming wreckage of her husband Anthony Weiner's political career, much the way George Zimmerman has been known to pull families out of overturned trucks, courtesy of NewsBusters:

On Tuesday and Wednesday, CNN followed NBC's narrative of connecting Huma Abedin to her "mentor" Hillary Clinton in dealing with husbands' sex scandals.   CNN repeatedly made the connection in a positive light, touting Abedin as "incredibly politically sophisticated," "intelligent," and "discerning" from her years working for Clinton. CNN insisted that Abedin would use the Clinton "playbook" to overcome her husband's scandal.

"[S]he's also incredibly politically sophisticated. Not only did she learn on the knee of Hillary Clinton, the most famous kind of stand-by-her-man political wife, she also was the go-to person for anyone who wanted to get to Hillary Clinton," touted CNN correspondent Dana Bash on Tuesday's Anderson Cooper 360.    "This – she is such an intelligent woman, and she clearly has taken notes from Hillary Clinton, her long-time employer and mentor," said CNN contributor John Avlon.

Accuser: Weiner a Half-Minute Man During Phone Sex

Jul 24, 2013 4:56 PM PT

Nik Richie of TheDirty.com, the blog that broke the latest sexting allegations against Anthony Weiner, says the young woman who gave him this story claims Weiner wasn't a satisfying lover over the phone.

Richie reveals on HuffPostLive that his source expressed disappointment in Weiner's aural skills, as the would-be mayor would climax in as little as 15 or 30 seconds. Host Marc Lamont Hill reacts, "You're saying he had premature ejaculation during phone sex?"

Weiner Confirms Sex Chats Are Real, Does Not Specify Timeframe

Jul 23, 2013 11:57 AM PT

Anthony Weiner's staff issued a statement confirming that chats published by The Dirty under the name Carlos Danger were in fact written by him.

Business Insider published the statement which began "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. While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me. I've apologized to Huma and am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and for her forgiveness. I want to again say that I am very sorry to anyone who was on the receiving end of these messages and the disruption that this has caused. As my wife and I have said, we are focused on moving forward.

Report: Anthony Weiner Texting Woman Post-Scandal

Jul 23, 2013 9:47 AM PT

The gossip site The Dirty claims to have uncovered new message exchanges between Anthony Weiner--under the pseudonym Carlos Danger--and a 22-year old woman who wishes to remain anonymous.

The Dirty posted a statement from the woman (warning there is a crotch shot which has been partly covered up at this link):

The part that’s most annoying is that I was 22 and in a bad place, but if anyone asked him he would say the same thing about himself, yet he’s an adult. This was a bad situation for me because I really admired him. Even post scandal, I thought he was misunderstood. Until I got to know him. I thought I loved him. Pretty pathetic.

Last August he even offered to help me get a condo in Chicago, without me asking. I’ll send screenshots of everything. I’m trusting you to keep my name out of it, because like I said, it was obviously a mistake. I was young and dumb. I just want people to really know he’s lying when he acts like he has changed.
