The Most Famous Weiner :Updated

Here's a guy with a lot of exposure. It seems that Anthony Weiner just can't help himself from waving his short comings around for various young ladies on line.
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.
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~
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.

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!!!

Since they chose to participate in sexting, can you define the women as victims?

As long as they are of the age of consent, the fact they played along was their choice.

Politically, he's not worth the time but if NYC votes him in, they are his fools.

There has been some questions regarding him possibly sending images to underage girls.

But in the words of Hillary "what difference does it make?"
Democrats seem to be immune to consequences for their actions and yes I believe that New York will elect him mayor because he stills holds a small lead in the polls.
I'm just amazed that what would be unacceptable on a street corner, age of consent or not, seems to be OK online.

I did read this too but if there was fire, it would likely have already surfaced.

Hypothetically, let's say a sexting suit was settled for monetary damages but not criminally adjudicated, I believe that would leave the parties open to criminal and civil charges.

Further, even if the victim was satisfied with a settlement, I believe she could still later sue the harasser, and her own parents for negligence....

I need to look this up but I recall previously reading on this type of case

I doubt very seriously that we will ever know the depth of Weiners depravity.
With Huma being best buds forever with Hillary I'm sure she lent them her and Bills "clean up" crew to make a lot of it disappear.

Apparently Bill's clean-up crew doesn't do dry cleaning ;-)
