Ironically, the dope posted this YouTube video just days short of the anniversary of his infamous dick pics being posted on Twitter. He apparently hasn’t quite mastered his own domain, or technology.
Anthony Weiner announced his campaign for mayor early this morning with — what else? — a leak.
Shortly after midnight, the disgraced ex-congressman’s campaign accidentally posted online a 2-minute, 16-second video in which he throws his hat into the ring, lays out his platform — and even acknowledges the scandal that ended his days in DC.
“Look, I made some big mistakes and I know I let a lot of people down. But I’ve also learned some tough lessons,” he says in the video. “I hope I get a second chance to work for you.”
The clip ends with Weiner on a stoop sitting next to his wife, former Hilary Rodham Clinton aide Huma Abedin, saying, “I will fight for you every single day.”
The stoop scene was shot May 16, according to pictures of the set taken by The Post.
The video — which came out just a few days short of the second anniversary of the day Weiner tweeted a sext of his bulging undies — ends with a logo: “Anthony Weiner for Mayor.”
Sources told The Post that the oddly timed video was legitimate, but that campaign staffers intended for the announcement to come out later today.
The video was posted on a campaign Web site and was then taken down, and then put back up. It also could be seen on YouTube.
In it, the former Queens congressman talks nostalgically about growing up in Brooklyn, notes that his mother was a teacher, and says he liked to watch the Mets play at Shea as a kid.
He also says he would work to lower rents and home prices and lift regulations on small business.
How does this tool plan to lower home prices? As always, the post has some fun with the story. Check out the URL:
