Weiner Shrinks to 4th in Polls … Disgraced Prostitute Scandal Gov. Spitzer Says He Will Not Vote for Fellow Democrat Sexting Scandal Plagued Anthony Weiner
Could the Democrat Party get any more bizarre? Just curious, does purchasing the services of a prostitute trump sexting?
Weiners poll numbers in free-fall. As more and more sordid sexting details come out regarding NYC mayoral candidate and former disgraced US Representative Anthony Weiner, his poll numbers shrink. Following the stories that Weiner continued sexting young girls after he was caught in his first scandal,
Carlos Danger Weiner has now slipped to fourth place in the polls in the Democrat primary for NYC mayor. According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, Weiner has dropped to just 16%, down 10% from just five days. According to RCP, Weiner is pretty much done, put a fork in him. However, at this point Weiner is going no where as he is pot committed and his ego is going to make him stay in the race and lose as opposed to have yet another embarrassing presser explaining his withdrawal from the race.
New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner has dropped to fourth place in a poll released on Monday, but Weiner has vowed to forge ahead nevertheless.
A new poll of likely Democratic voters taken by Quinnipiac University shows the disgraced former congressman trailing City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and former city comptroller Bill Thompson.
In addition, the poll shows that a majority of likely voters — 53 percent — think Weiner should step aside in light of recent revelations of another sexting scandal.
Quinn leads the Democratic pack with 27 percent, with 21 percent for de Blasio, 20 percent for Thompson, 6 percent for Comptroller John Liu and 2 percent for former Council member Sal Albanese, the poll finds. Seven percent of likely Democratic primary voters remain undecided.
Ha, Eliot Spitzer, the voice of the moral majority and ethics speak out against Weiner
But it gets even more bizarre, if possible. Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York who was forced to resign from office because of his prostitute scandal. Wow, talk about the pot calling the kettle immoral. So Spitzer says he will not support or vote for Weiner. Really? Does Spitzer even have the right to weigh in on anything that has to do with a sex scandal? Dude, last time I checked buying prostitutes as a governor (Client #9) trumps sexting. This might be one of the most hypocritical double standards ever. Spitzer is currently running for comptroller of NYC. What makes him think that he has the moral or ethical background for that position?
Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer doesn’t think Anthony Weiner should be mayor of New York City.
Asked by host Chris Matthews Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball” who he would vote for in the mayoral election, Spitzer was hesitant to answer. Matthews pressed Spitzer, saying “You’re not going to vote for Anthony Weiner, can you just say that now? You don’t think he should be mayor of New York.”
“I think the answer is yes,” Spitzer said. “We have had a number of instances over the years where inevitably, of course, municipal employees, state employees have used computers and the like for improper purposes and there is an appropriate sanction for that and there should be.”
From CNN, comes the following comments from Spitzer’s opponent in the Democratic race for city comptroller, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer:
“It’s clear that Eliot Spitzer thinks there are two standards – one for him, and one for everybody else. His comments are the height of hypocrisy,” Stringer’s campaign said in a statement.
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black, the ultimate double standard and hypocrisy …
The New York Post is reporting that Bill and Hillary Clinton are livid, peeved and mad as hell at the comparisons that are being made to Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and Anthony Weiner’s sexting to females and his wife Huma’s forgiveness of his transgressions. REALLY? Sorry, but Weiner’s actions may be pervy and completely disgusting, but do they really rise to the level of
high crimes and misdemeanors what Bill “Bubba” Clinton did with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office? We will not even get into the “cigar” discussion. Bill and Hillary are mad at the comparisons, who do you think set the bar so low for politicians to come? Lest we remind everyone that it was Slick Willy who had sex with a 22 year old intern. It was Hillary Clinton who taught Huma how to “stand by your man” for political expediency.
Just curious, when did sexting become worse than sex with a 22 year old intern in the White House? Hmm, How does anyone top that? Sorry, if Bill Clinton was allowed to stay in office and the Democrats did not think his judgement was out of line, how can they say anything different about Anthony Weiner?
How come what was good for Bill Clinton is not the same for Anthony Weiner?
Bill and Hillary Clinton are angry with efforts by mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner and his campaign to compare his Internet sexcapades — and his wife Huma Abedin’s incredible forgiveness — to the Clintons’ notorious White House saga, The Post has learned.
“The Clintons are upset with the comparisons that the Weiners seem to be encouraging — that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill, which is not what she in fact did,’’ said a top state Democrat.
Weiner and his campaign aides have explicitly referred to the Clintons as they privately seek to convince skeptical Democrats that voters can back Weiner despite his online sexual antics — just as they supported then-President Bill Clinton in the face of repeated allegations of marital betrayals.
“The Clintons are pissed off that Weiner’s campaign is saying that Huma is just like Hillary,’’ said the source. “How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? It is thanks to Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton that today it seems that Americans care less that their politicians act like dogs in heat and their spouses just accept it. The Gateway Pundit has pics of better times between the two “dirty old men” when Bubba attended a Weiner fundraiser. And even more folly of Bill and Hillary turning on Weiner. Obviously there is only room enough for one morally bankrupt male Democrat in the party and his name is Bubba Clinton.
Weiner campaign takes another hit …
The Anthony Weiner NYC mayoral campaign takes another blow. According to the NY Times, campaign manager, Danny Kedem has quit Team Weiner following the revelations of Weiner’s continued on-line conduct with females that are not his wife. Honestly, how could anyone really continue on Weiner’s campaign and respect themselves? It actually makes one wonder how Weiner does not have the smarts and resign from the race himself. But obviously, if Weiner had the where with all to continue with his perverse sexting even after he was outed the first time and forced to resign from the House, he has no shame to do the right thing now. However, it would appear that his campaign manager has suddenly realized that having Weiner on his resume was not a good thing.
According to two people told of the decision, the campaign manager, Danny Kedem, no longer wished to oversee Mr. Weiner’s bid for New York mayor after a week of bruising revelations about the candidate’s latest online conduct. The two people, who have close ties to the campaign, did not want to be identified because they were disclosing confidential conversations.
Mr. Kedem, 31, informed Mr. Weiner of his decision in the last 24 hours, the two people said.
Mr. Weiner confirmed the news on Sunday morning outside of a Brooklyn church where he was campaigning. “Danny has left the campaign. He did a remarkable job,” Mr. Weiner said.
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) says on CNN that Weiner should step down the same as he did when he was caught in his first sexting scandal.
Anthony Weiner’s proclivity for sending sexually charged online messages is a “pathological problem” that should prevent him from assuming the role of New York City mayor, Rep. Peter King said Sunday.
A Republican representing parts of Long Island, New York, King said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Weiner was “not psychologically qualified to be mayor of the city of New York.”
Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner Says, I Only Sexted with Up To 3 Women After I Resigned after My First Sexting Scandal
As the Commodores once sang, “You Once, Twice, Three Times a Lady …” I think it is safe to say that Anthony Weiner’s political career is flaming out before or very eyes. People are forgiving, they are not stupid. However, to look on the good side for Weiner, Carlos Danger will havbe plenty of time in the future to continue sexting with all the women he wants.
Thanks for the times
That you’ve given me
The memories are all in my mind
And now that we’ve come
To the end of our rainbow
I must say out loud
You’re once, twice
Three times a lady
Yes you’re once twice
Three times a lady
Carlos Danger, oops I mean Anthony Weiner says he only sexted up to three woman after he had been caught in his first sexting scandal that forced him to resign from the US House of Representatives. WOW, just three, so that makes it ok. Good grief, so he did not just have one indiscretion, there have been three that he is willing to admit. Can we just say that Weiner has a serious issue that shows an incredible lack of judgement and will power. It is also safe to say that Carlos Danger should never be running for public office ever again.

Anthony Weiner says he traded racy messages with as many as three women after resigning from Congress in 2011 for similar conduct.
The married Democrat also said Thursday that he’s still “working with people” to get help dealing with his penchant for X-rated online flirting. But he disputes any suggestion that it’s an addiction.
Weiner now says he had bawdy exchanges with six to 10 women while in office.
It would appear that Weiners lead has shrunk. Polls show that Weiner is in free-fall. It’s time for Weiner to bow out of the race and save his family from further embarrassment.
The new NBC 4 New York/Wall Street Journal/Marist Poll released Thursday found Weiner’s favorability rating among registered Democrats has tanked since June, from 52 percent to 30 percent, according to the poll conducted Wednesday. Over that same period, the percentage of Democrats who said they had an unfavorable impression of Weiner spiked from 36 to 55.
His lead over City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has also evaporated; 25 percent of Democrats said they’d now vote for her in the Sept. 10 Democratic primary, and 16 percent said they’d back Weiner. A poll conducted last month had Weiner leading Quinn 25 percent to 20 percent.
