Anthony Weiner picks up first endorsement for mayoral run (Keith Ellison)
Politico ^ | 4/11/13 | KEVIN CIRILLI

Posted on 04/11/2013 5:19:08 PM PDT by markomalley

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) on Thursday endorsed Anthony Weiner for mayor of New York City.

“Anthony’s a good guy in my opinion. Now, he should’ve came clean once he got busted, you know, and I’m sorry he didn’t do that – but he’s sorry he didn’t do that and his [wife Huma Abedin’s] sorry he didn’t do that,” Ellison said on Current TV to host Bill Press.

“Look man, nobody here is perfect. Anthony was a great congressman in my opinion, and he’s dealt with his issues and everybody has issues. So I’d love to see Anthony Weiner be mayor of New York. I hereby endorse him.”

Weiner and Abedin, an aide to Hillary Clinton, gave a wide-ranging interviews to The New York Times Magazine, which was published Wednesday, and Weiner says he’s considering a mayoral bid this year. Weiner, a former Democratic congressman from New York, resigned from Congress in 2011 following the fallout from a scandal in which he accidentally tweeted a lewd photograph of himself.

Ellison said on Current TV that while his endorsement is “unsolicited,” he still thinks Weiner is an “awesome guy.”

“I heard somebody say, ‘Weiner’s angry.’ But he’s not angry – he’s passionate. He believes in what he’s doing. he was so into making sure people got a chance to go to a doctor,” Ellison told Press. “He was an indispensable voice on the issue of health care. And I just – you know, he and I had some disagreements on some Middle East stuff, but he was always congenial in terms of discussing it. But I like Anthony Weiner a lot. And I think his wife is an awesome person. He would do the city of New York a lot of good, I think.”

KEYWORDS: pervert
Almost anyplace else, an endorsement from Ellison (MB-MN) would be the kiss of death.

But anymore...and especially in NYC...

I wonder if Weiner’s long suffering wife Huma had anything to do with this endorsement?

Huma is in semi-retirment until Jan 2017 when POTUS Clinton will appoint her to a top WH “advisor” post.

Seems that way. Guess you can’t keep a determined Weiner down.

The sad part is this guy, John-boy Edwards, and Spitzer will all wind up in top level elected or appointed jobs.

Many fine young men dies and lost limbs to protect NYC.

Why?

He would do the city of New York a lot of good, I think.

To be fair, I have to wonder whether Weiner could do damage than Bloomberg, and even if he did, would Noo Yawkers even know the difference? If crime rises in Chicago, how would anyone tell? If more Mexicans squeeze into Los Angeles, would there still be enough food stamps to keep them in tacos? If San Francisco turns any creeper, is there something like a Richter scale for that? What comes after totally out of control?

Heroes of the Democrat Party:

Eliot Spitzer - given his own TV show on CNN
Bill Clinton - elder statesman/rock star
Ted Kennedy - lion of the Senate
John Edwards - ignored at the time, now completely forgotten and never mentioned

Anthony Weiner may not become mayor of NYC - this time - but the NY Times puff piece is the beginning of his comeback which will eventually result in high office of some kind or another.

“It’s a private matter between him and his wife. And she’s forgiven him, so we should, too.” Sound familiar?

Sick.

America desperately needs to stop politics from being a career. It ruins the country and attracts nutcases who can’t make a living any other way.

His wife doesn’t care what he does. He is nothing but a beard for her so she can clean Hillary’s carpet, and pass on information to the Middle East Muslims.

I understand some expect Weiner will offer stiff opposition. There are those who believe he possesses the total package.

Ditto. Democrats have no shame or morals. Not a one of these guys could control his weiner, especially Weiner, who just had to make sure that everyone in the world could see his wiener on the internet. The ultimate beige raincoat for these perverts.

NJ Gov McGreevey can be added to this list.

If they were all Republicans they would be toast, no question about it. But, Democrats know that they can do anything and get away with it because they will always have the moron vote along with the blessings of the mainstream media.
