Oh Gawd, Another Weinergate?

Anthony Weiner lost his seat in Congress in 2011 because he was caught exchanging sexually explicit messages (including naked photos) with a woman that was not his wife. This year he’s running for mayor of New York City but today he’s been exposed–if you will–in yet another sexting scandal..

Weiner has admitted that it is all true, too.

Here is his statement on the new allegations:

I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have. As I have said in the past, these things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress. While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me. I’ve apologized to Huma and am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and for her forgiveness. I want to again say that I am very sorry to anyone who was on the receiving end of these messages and the disruption that this has caused. As my wife and I have said, we are focused on moving forward.

Weiner may try to characterize all this as merely being part of his earlier scandal, but it appears that the dates of this sexting scandal comes after the scandal that had him ejected from Congress.

It seems clear that he continued the very behavior that caused him to lose his seat in Congress even after he lost that seat.

What has he learned? Seemingly nothing at all.

**UPDATE**

The photoshoppers are already in gear…

    He is done.

      He IS a Democrat, though. Dems are expected to be immoral cretins at this point. It may not surprise anyone enough not to vote for him.

      Should have been done the first time around…

    • LiberalNightmare

      He still has a chance, democrats only care about morals when they talk about republicans.

  • jim_m

    Aren’t Peter Boyle and Dom Deluise dead?

    I suppose that means they are still voting democrat.

  • GarandFan

    Maybe Andy can get together with Filthy Bob Filner, mayor of San Diego. They can exchange notes on “how to”.

  • JWH

    So … Is this hard news or soft news?

  • Retired military

    Expect the dem voters to not even think about this. After all he is the representative of the candyman party.

    ” but it appears that the dates of this sexting scandal comes after the scandal that had him ejected from Congress”
    From what I saw the texts were sent all through his wife’s pregnancy as well. What a man.

  • Commander_Chico

    This was two years after he left Congress? What a compulsive sicko.

    Prediction: Huma will leave him if he doesn’t win the election.

    • LiberalNightmare

      Huma will stay. She needs the beard.

        Ayup.

    The worst possible politician. Locally, in my own Multnomah County, the County Chair(local county leader) has his own sex scandal and hid in the back seat of a car the other day to avoid reporter’s questions. – But, on the other hand I suppose something of a double standard exists here. Politicians create a scandal when they romance in office, but as a private businessman I could have sex on the job with my girlfriend almost any time that she would visit my business. She just turned 30, and I’m just turning 58.- If politicians did the same, they’re the world’s worse. But, when I do my girlfriend, I’m admired as an outrageous biker stud by my friends. – Politicians can’t win I guess….

    Few people realize it….But Anthony Weiner used to be a star of SAVED BY THE BELL….

    Oh Gawd indeed! But as they say bad publicity is still publicity. So as long as he is getting attention, maybe it’s good for him. We’ll know soon enough. :)
