NYT: Weiner Imperiled His Political Resurrection

Buried in the ‘NY/Region’ section of the New York Times:

Weiner Admits Explicit Texting After House Exit

By DAVID W. CHEN and JAVIER C. HERNÁNDEZ | July 23, 2013

Anthony D. Weiner’s [sic] improbable campaign [sic]for mayor was engulfed [sic] on Tuesday by a new scandal involving explicit online messages, imperiling his political resurrection [sic] two years after he resigned from Congress over similar behavior [sic].

The Times’ elevated tone here seems especially ludicrous, given the nature of the story.

Mr. Weiner, appearing solemn and a bit worn as he faced more than 100 journalists at a hastily arranged news conference, acknowledged that his habit of sending sexual images and text messages to female fans had continued for more than a year after he left Congress vowing to seek treatment and change his behavior.

“It’s in our rearview mirror, but it’s not far,” he said…

Eeww. Don’t say "rearview mirror."

The revelation collides with the narrative [sic] Mr. Weiner has offered throughout the campaign, in which he has repeatedly suggested that he has spent his time since leaving Congress rehabilitating himself and repairing his family relationships. After a late entry into the Democratic primary, he had rapidly risen in the polls, and performed strongly in fund-raising, as his relentless focus on ideas [sic] and his omnipresence [sic] helped ease the concerns of many voters.

He was ‘relentlessly focused’ all right.

On Tuesday, seeming to recognize the fragility of his public standing, he pleaded with New Yorkers to trust his assertions that he is now a changed man, despite the news that his online adventures — some conducted under the pseudonym of Carlos Danger [sic] — had persisted through last summer, after the birth of his child.

Speaking amid the cramped cubicles of a vacant Chelsea office, Mr. Weiner, alternately chastened and defiant, vowed to press ahead with his campaign. His wife, Huma Abedin, stood by his side, at times smiling at him, but at times staring at the floor or at the cabinets behind her.

Publicly airing the couple’s private pain, Ms. Abedin said her decision to stay with Mr. Weiner was “not an easy choice,” and said, “Anthony’s made some horrible mistakes, both before he resigned from Congress and after.”

“We discussed all of this before Anthony decided he would run for mayor, so really what I want to say is, I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him,” she added.

Ms. Abedin, a longtime close aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton, spoke haltingly about the ups and downs of her marriage, making it clear that reconciling with Mr. Weiner after the scandal was a long and difficult process. “It took a lot of work, and a whole lot of therapy, to get to a place where I could forgive Anthony,” she said, reading from a prepared text that she slowly unfolded at the lectern…

Why didn’t Huma just blame all of her husband’s woes on a vast rightwing conspiracy? Then she could too could be called the ‘Smartest Woman In The World.’

And, for that matter, we wonder why Mr. Weiner didn’t just wag his finger self-righteously and intone, ‘I did not have sext-ual relations with that girl.’

Meanwhile, we have a slightly different take from the New York Post:

Weiner admits to XXX online chats with woman for 6 months after resigning from Congress because of sext scandal; won’t drop out of race

By CARL CAMPANILE | July 23, 2013

Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted today he had another extended, raunchy online sexual relationship with a young woman — just months after resigning in disgrace from Congress in a sexting scandal…

Weiner insisted that Huma knew all the details of the new revelations and insisted it’s "behind" them…

Thedirty.com reported that Weiner used an anonymous handle — “Carlos Danger” — and exchanged sexually explicit photos and XXX-online sex with the 22-year-old young woman for six months.

One of the alleged messages between Anthony Weiner and ‘Anonymous’:

Dangr33: so you wont tell me what picture of me you like the most or turned you on the most? only tv?

Anonymous: Specifically your health care rants were a huge turn on (smiley face)

Actually, to our mind, the biggest scandal attached to Mr. Weiner is that he claims to have written the Obama-Care law. And he is proud of it.

Hours after the lurid chats were posted, Weiner issued a statement confirming that some of the details “are true” — and apologized…

Anthony Weiner like a true sex predator promised Anonymous many things like a job at Politico and a condo in Chicago (a place they could meet up and have sex)…

Funny how Weiner felt like he could promise this girl a job at the Politico. Why is that?

    Too stupid to comment on except to say … this has all been a Hillary Op right from the beginning. 2016. Probably to make Huma the Mayoral candidate. As Thomas Lifson at American Thinker says, “Who else but Huma can attract Jewish and Muslim donors?”

    It’s called being Rick Rolled. (Urban Dictionary)
