How much more of this pitiful spectacle must we be subjected to before this loathsome scumbag just goes away?
Anthony Weiner says he traded racy messages with as many as three women after resigning from Congress because of sexting.
The married Democrat also said Thursday he’s still “working with people” to get help dealing with his penchant for X-rated flirting online. But he disputes any suggestion that it’s an addiction.
Weiner now says he had bawdy exchanges with six to 10 women while in office.
He’s continuing his New York City mayoral campaign amid the latest round of disclosures about his behavior.
It got seamier Thursday, when the gossip site The Dirty posted a lewd photo of himself Weiner sent to a woman last year.
A Marist poll taken after his latest indignation is expected today. Hopefully it sends him a clear message that it’s time to go away. Not only that, is he so stupid as to not realize more of his lurid behavior will be exposed daily? He cannot possibly survive this politically.
Update: As soon as we hit publish the poll is released, and the news is all bad.
Former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s numbers have plummeted in New York’s Democratic mayoral race, according to a new NBC4 New York/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll that was conducted after the new revelations of Weiner’s lewd and racy communication with a young woman.
In this new poll, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn leads at 25% among registered Democrats, followed by Weiner at 16%, and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and former Comptroller Bill Thompson tied at 14%.
Yet back in June, Weiner was in front at 25% — followed by Quinn at 20%, Thompson at 13%, and de Blasio at 10%.
What’s more, Weiner’s favorability numbers have been turned upside down: 55% now view him negatively, compared with 30% who view him positively.
Prediction: He withdraws by Friday.
