I've often wondered what their reactions would be if he was standing on a street corner dangling himself at women when they walk by?
In most places he would be arrested yet somehow, until his victims decide to reveal all, it's considered "private" while he's doing it online.
Until it's not private.
For most people there would be consequences to this kind of behavior and there is an attempt to get him to quit the race and do what he really needs to do and just fade off into the sunset.
Pressure mounts on Anthony Weiner to quit NYC mayoral race after sexting scandal
Anthony Weiner resisted calls to withdraw from the New York City mayoral race Tuesday after finding himself caught in another sexting scandal similar to the one that ended his congressional career two years ago.Even the New York Times, that bastion of liberal forgiveness in the face of outrageous scandal and incompetence, has called for him to bow out.
Weiner admitted sending a woman sexually explicit photos and messages and acknowledged the activity took place as recently as last summer, more than a year after he resigned from the House in June 2011 for the same sort of behavior with at least a half-dozen women.
With his wife, Huma Abedin, standing an arm's length away from him, Weiner told a hastily called news conference he would stay in the race despite the new onslaught of negative publicity.
"I want to bring my vision to the people of the city of New York. I hope they are willing to still continue to give me a second chance," Weiner said.
In an editorial posted online Tuesday, the New York Times urged Weiner to drop out of the race, saying Weiner "should take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City."~snip~
But you know what?
After thinking about it why should he?
With practically wall to wall coverage by the media when anybody asks about the NYC mayoral race the candidate most people know by name is Weiner. I mean really, how many other candidates can the majority of people name who' running for that office?
It's a low information voter gold mine for Weiner, people who pay little to no attention to what is really going on walking into a voting booth and seeing Anthony's last name and because they've heard it pull the lever for him.
It's a time honored liberal tradition in American politics, get the name out there good or bad, people will vote for what they know.In a city like New York waving his sch-long online and getting caught could be the best thing for him. Weiner becoming famous for whatever reason might be enough to make him mayor.
Here's a montage of Weiner trying to weasel out of his perverted predilections.
Spin Anthony spin!!!
