Just 13 months after succumbing to scandal that involved pictures of his crotch being broadcast for the world to see and repeated lies about it, those close to former congressman Anthony Weiner are already talking about a comeback.

Disgrace with dignity: in Weiner's downfall, hold the relish

-_-


by Alan Wirzbicki
June 17, 2011


There were loud interruptions throughout Weiner's four-minute statement, which took place in a senior center in his district, in a room teeming with reporters. When Weiner announced that he was quitting, somebody cheered and shouted out, "Bye-bye, pervert!"


Benjy Bronk, a writer for Howard Stern's show, kept pressing the congressman with questions as "Are you fully erect? The people demand to know!"

Weiner didn't acknowledge the shouting, though he looked a bit shaken. And it sounds as if the bona fide reporters in the room were agitated as well; in this clip, you can hear someone yelling, "He's not with us!"

One could argue that Weiner invited this sort of scene, since his scandal felt like the doings of a socially stunted 15-year-old. In his dishonor, Weiner was finally doing the honorable thing: Standing up before the cameras, taking responsibility for his actions, apologizing to his constituents, his colleagues, and his family. The jokes about Weinergate have pretty much written themselves, and they'll keep coming. But during his final act of contrition, a disgraced congressman deserved, at last, a modicum of respect. LOL!

Weiner’s disgrace: A warning to all who would serve

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

The sex scandal that Rep. Anthony D. Weiner, D-New York, has created for himself is lamentably familiar to Americans. The names, details and sequence of events differ with each such scandal, but the end result is usually resignation and disgrace. When all the titillating headlines and bad jokes are over, Mr. Weiner’s legacy — whether he remains in office or not — will have been to further erode the dignity of Congress.

Perhaps we are naive, but we still believe that being elected to one of the 435 seats in the House, or one of the 100 seats in the Senate, should instill in any American a measure of humility and gratefulness, both to the voters of his or her district and a nation that has defended its democratic institutions from enemies foreign and domestic for 235 years.

Election to Congress should call forth one’s sense of honor, leading to selfless service for as long as one enjoys the support of voters. And, in an age when the media and one’s political opponents are ever ready to pounce on the most innocent misstatement or slip of the tongue, those entrusted with a seat in Washington must exercise considerable caution in their private and public lives.

Mr. Weiner’s actions, of course, were the antithesis of all that. He invited scandal by engaging in inappropriate and foolish behavior, and then — incredibly — creating an electronic trail that even a casual observer could have seen would lead to public ridicule. His subsequent efforts to deny and evade responsibility for his behavior are arguably the most pathetic part of this sad and sordid tale.

Mr. Weiner’s departure from Congress is the necessary final chapter in this particular scandal. His story will have a salutary effect, however, only if the remaining members of Congress — and the thousands of Americans pondering a run for a seat in Washington — learn from his experience. A healthy ego may well be a prerequisite to seeking high public office, but does not suffice. True and honorable public service also requires men and women with humility, strong moral character, and a sense of decorum. This is why Weiner is gone.

He had a chance, but screwed up. Just like Spitzer did, although I think had he not Fcuked around, he may have made a good governor. But Weiner should forget it - this will follow him forever.

You guys got a lot of jollies over salivating over photos of this guy's crotch.

Mr. Weiner acted stupidly but writing off his political career is predictable from you hypocritical folks but not very smart either.
