NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There was an ugly exchange on Friday between New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner and a Staten Island teacher and principal. And in another bombshell, the candidate was asked if he would he hire a schools chancellor or a police commissioner with the same sexting addiction he has. Weiner thought his Staten Island campaign stop would get him back to talking about the issues affect New York. In this case people hurt by Hurricane Sandy. But a local teacher and principal rained on his parade.
Peg Brunda asked the question Weiner definitely did not want to hear.
Weiner responded by saying, “You’re not voting for me?”
Brunda: “No, I’m not voting for you, sir.”
Weiner: “I want to let other people make the decision for themselves.”
Weiner was trying to get his campaign back on track after a week of headlines about his XXX-rated online romance with a 22-year-old woman. He went to Staten Island to talk about Hurricane Sandy, but it wasn’t just the residents that wanted to grill him.
He also made the startling disclosures that he would have no problem hiring a schools chancellor or a police commissioner with the same sexting addiction he apparently has.
