This is the thing about Anthony Weiner: He's just so very, very seductive. Irresistible. He makes you do things you'd never dream of doing. Well, not you. Some people. They just want to surrender to him. The failed mayoral candidate tells GQ's Marshall Sella about how this sad fact undermined his campaign from the start, when he offered himself and his wife, Huma Abedin, up to the New York Times Magazine for the profile, by Jonathan Van Meter, that was to mark his return to political respectability:
Pro political tip: If you're at an American Association of Retired Persons forum in order to try and drum up senior support for your crumbling New York City mayoral campaign, it's probably best not to slur your opponent in front of all those old people by calling him "grandpa." You know this, sure, but does sext-pro Anthony Weiner know this? No.
Things aren't going well for Anthony Weiner's mayoral campaign. There was the second round of dick pics, the campaign manager quitting, the drop in the polls, and the non-answer about whether or not he is sexting someone at this exact moment. And now this: on Tuesday, Weiner's communications director called a former intern for the campaign a “fucking slutbag,” a “twat,” and a “cunt.”
"Carlos Danger" is not only the narcissistic online coif Anthony Weiner adorned to shield his identity while sexting his dick (again), it's also the government name of a real 37-year-old psychiatrist with a real medical practice, a real Miami address, and a real phone number. And the real Carlos Danger wants you to leave him alone.
Good afternoon. Anthony Weiner announced that he engaged in sexual relationships with up to three women online since resigning from Congress in 2011. Or rather, that's what he says he thinks that he believes. Shall we let him phrase this in his own words? "I don’t believe I had any more than three," he announced at a press conference after someone asked.
Does anyone want Carlos Danger, né Anthony Weiner, to stay in the New York City mayoral race? Bill DeBlasio doesn't (duh). The Daily News doesn't. The Times doesn't. Since Weiner admitted to sending sex messages to women even after he told everyone he'd stopped, the only people who still want him in the race are himself, and his wife.
Faced with charges he was participating in raunchy online chats as late as last summer, disgraced former congressman and current New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner said in a just-released statement that he was expecting the new allegations and that his lascivious ways are now completely over.
