On Monday, fading New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner tried to reinvigorate his polling by issuing a proclamation celebrating Women’s Equality Day. “When women have equal rights, our society is better off,” Weiner wrote while not texting pictures of his genitals. “This is one of my long-held beliefs and it’s why I have been such a staunch supporter of women’s rights my entire career.”
Weiner then asked for cash.
He posted a video of a speech he gave before Planned parenthood in 2011, writing, “It’s part of a new feature on my website called a ‘Stroll Down Memory Lane’ where you can see where I’ve stood on the issues and what I will fight for as your mayor.” The stroll down memory lane will presumably not include a cul-de-sac called “Carlos Danger Street.”
