As the degenerate Anthony Weiner’s political aspirations once again crumble around him, coming to grips with the truth is apparently very difficult. As everyone on the planet knows by now his online sexting name was the absurd Carlos Danger. Yet when asked about it last night he played dumb.
Politicker asked Mr. Weiner why he chose the moniker as he was exiting a mayoral forum on HIV/AIDS following a dramatic press conference during which he admitted to engaging in lewd online conversations more than a year after his resignation, and after proclaiming himself a different person in People magazine.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Mr. Weiner responded, before being rushed out of the room through a private exit, trailed by a gaggle of press.
Really? Your online girlfriend sure does.
“Anthony Weiner like a true sex predator promised Anonymous many things like a job at Politico and a condo in Chicago (a place they could meet up and have sex).
“The relationship consisted of Anthony Weiner and Anonymous sending sexually explicit pictures of each other and having sexual conversations via phone. The best part was Anthony used an alias this time thinking this would protect him.”
The site said Weiner used the pseudonym Carlos Danger when he would “e-mail pictures of his penis via Yahoo.”
For all the online monitoring by the NSA, we’re surprised nobody noticed those dick pics.
“The part that’s most annoying is that I was 22 years old and in a bad place, but if anyone asked him he would say the same thing about himself, yet he’s an adult,” the woman told thedirty.com.
“This was a bad situation for me because I really admired him. Even post-scandal, I thought he was misunderstood. Until I got to know him. I thought I loved him. Pretty pathetic.”
The woman said that last August, Weiner offered to help get her a condo in Chicago.
At one point, Weiner — again using the handle Dangr33 — said, “I’m deeply flawed.”
The woman said the relationship fizzled out in November and contact virtually stopped — until April, when Weiner contacted her on Facebook after he re-emerged publicly to run for mayor.
In one chat using his real name, Weiner asks the woman, “Do me a solid. Can you hard delete all our chat here?”
“Yes I can,” Anonymous responds.
Who does he know at Politico that would help arrange a job, and how would a guy with no visible means of support other than his doormat wife be able to buy a condo in Chicago? These are questions he needs to answer. Meanwhile, Weiner was warmly greeted at a gay event last night.
Seemingly unfazed by this potshot and the dramatic media circus that preceded the forum, Mr. Weiner, however, didn’t deviate from his message. The ex-congressman repeatedly touted his history of standing up for LGBT rights, eliciting uproarious applause from the crowd.
“When I ran in 2005, when there was a little upstart with the local parade on Staten Island, a gay pride parade on Staten Island, where people said, ‘Wait a minute, there are no queers on Staten Island.’ I was out there marching with them,” Mr. Weiner triumphantly remarked, drawing applause yet again.
So it’s OK for this leftwing deviant to use the word queers? Meanwhile, calls for him to drop out are growing. He can’t possibly survive any more of this, can he?
Weiner entered the mayor’s race asking for New Yorkers’ trust. He had squandered the precious commodity by brazenly trying to lie his way out of the scandal that sunk him in 2011. He said he would play straight, but he deceived even as he spoke. And now he is a man whose word is accepted less readily than that of a nameless, faceless social networker.
He cannot be mayor.
The New York Times also says enough is enough.
“Mr. Weiner says he is staying in the mayoral race. To those who know his arrogance and have grown tired of the tawdry saga he has dragged the city into, this is not surprising.”
