Anthony Weiner Is Running For Mayor Of New York


Last we saw Anthony Weiner he was retreating with his “manhood” tucked away in embarrassment as his Twitter sexting scandal led to his early exit from Congress and a long trip to wife Huma Abedin’s doghouse. Politicker reports he’s attempting to get back into politics:

He’s in. After weeks of speculation, disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner has officially thrown his hat into the mayor’s race, announcing he’s running with a new video posted on his revamped campaign website.

“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, which opens with a family scene of the former Councilman and his wife, Huma Abedin, having breakfast in their kitchen with their son.

“I’m running for mayor ’cause I’ve been fighting for the middle class and those struggling to make it my entire life. And I hope I get a second chance to work for you,” he says.

…The announcement comes nearly two years to the day after Mr. Weiner destroyed his Congressional career by tweeting out a photo of his underwear-clad crotch that had been intended as a private message–and then repeatedly lying about it in interviews and at press conferences, claiming his account had been hacked. He eventually admitted to having inappropriate relationships with half a dozen women online, sending them lewd text messages and images.

Between Weiner and front-runner Christine Quinn’s bullying, bulimia, and alcoholism it should be an interesting race…

    This is all we have to offer the people?

    • jim_m

      It’s all NYC deserves

      • Commander_Chico

        NYC will do OK without your approval.

        • fustian24

          Well, not if they’re stupid enough to vote in a narcissist, egomaniac with impulse issues just because he is reliably Marxist enough.

          In this case, one could reliably infer they may not be OK.

          • Jwb10001

            Hey maybe it’s a good idea, he’s so self consumed maybe he’ll reverse the trend of the current mayor to stick his nose in everyone’s business.

          • fustian24

            Except he’ll probably stick his business in everybody’s nose!

    • It’s all the Dhimmocrats have to offer NYC.

  • LiberalNightmare

    Should be an interesting erection.

    I mean election.

  • JWH

    He faces a long, hard campaign.

  • herddog505

    This is going to leave a bad taste in a lot of mouths.

    New Quinnipiac poll on NYC mayoral race: Weiner comes second

    • Commander_Chico

      A man should always come second.

      • Which man told you that?

        • Commander_Chico

          The one banging your wife.

          • Once again it’s not what you know, it’s what you know that’s not so…

            I’m not married.

          • I don’t have a wife named “Rosie” ne Palmer.

  • LiberalNightmare

    This is one election where it would be wise to avoid the poling station.

  • RadiCalMan

    With all of the street weiner stands in NYC, he’s gonna’ have to come up with some special mustard to win this one!

  • Paul Hooson

    I think that he might have overestimated the relative strength of the subway pervert vote….

    • fustian24

      Now, this one is funny!

      Where was this Paul last Friday in the caption contest?

      • Paul Hooson

        Oh, I know I was off last Friday. It was a disaster as bad as Oklahoma. It wasn’t until very late that I finally found a little stride making some convenience store jokes, but by then most of my jokes really blew. – I owned and operated a similar type of business for the last three years, working as much as 16 hours a day, 365 days a year, yet I couldn’t remember one single good joke to tell. It was awful. – The only thing I had to look forward to at the store was for my girlfriend to visit for some kisses or quick backroom sex, otherwise it was just real long hours…

  • LiberalNightmare

    If weiner loses, will it be because of electile dysfunction?

    Credit where its due …

    • fustian24

      Or premature electionation!

  • fustian24

    Any Weiner entry generally means somebody is getting screwed.

  • fustian24

    Weiner’s plan is to demand photos of his opponents “Anthony” so that the voters can decide whose is bigger.

    It’s a NY thing.

    This is going to be fun. Weiner’s campaign website featured a picture of the Pittsburgh skyline instead of NYC.
