Anthony Weiner Apologizes for Sexting Story That Isnít Even Out Yet
New York Magazine ^ | 6/11/2013 | Joe Coscarelli

Posted on 06/11/2013 1:26:08 PM PDT by nickcarraway

This morning, the New York Times pulled an Anthony Weiner–on-Twitter move on a story about Anthony Weiner's sexting sins, prematurely publishing a story headlined "For Women in Weiner Scandal, Indignity Lingers" before pulling it in favor of a "production note." When the story does come out, according to spoilers lingering on Google, reporter Michael Barbaro will check in with the women at the other end of Weiner's dirty chats, like Lisa Weiss, the Las Vegas blackjack dealer, who still hears nasty stuff from customers like, "Talk dirty to me. We know you like it." For these forthcoming revelations, Weiner insists he's already said he's sorry.

"I've apologized for the many lives I've turned upside down by my actions," the mayoral candidate said at a campaign stop today, before attempting to pivot. "I've expressed my regrets for that. I think ultimately what this election is going to be about is about the ideas for the middle class and moving us forward and the people who are struggling to make it in the middle class."

Pushed about the specifics of his apologies to the women, Weiner said, "I have not been in contact except for in very basic ways. But I'm not gonna give any information about any of those contacts. I have said steadfastly that I apologize for the things that I've done." We look forward to the same artful dodge when the article is actually released.

Understanding the caliber of NYC voters, it will no longer be “the big apple”, it will be “the big wienie”.

Looks like Weiner’s rapid rise is turning out to be a dud.

That’s efficient mayoral leadership for you— apologizing for scandals that haven’t happened yet.

I’m sure they’ve got a handful. He isn’t known for keeping things zipped up, so he’s got plenty of exposure.

Mr. Weiner has only “contacted” the women in “the most basic way”. And what way is that, Mr. Wiener! New York deserves this jerk ofFor Mayor.

The story is dangling out there and pulling it will only deepen the probative impact once the full thrust of its release penetrates. He will have to harden himself against the stiff perturbation this will arouse in the electorate.
