Rep. King (R-NY): Weiner Not 'Psychologically Qualified' to Be Mayor

On CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) bashed New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, who has been under fire over the past two weeks for new revelations that his sexting habits extended well beyond his resignation from Congress. “He should do himself and everybody a favor and step to the sidelines,” said King. “He is not psychologically qualified to be mayor of the city of New York.”

King said that Weiner’s poll lead, which has evaporated, was due to the celebrity factor: “I just think it was sort of a perverse celebrity factor for a while to have his numbers up there. I just can’t see any way, even if this latest scandal would not have come out, that Anthony Weiner could have won.”
