Sex Therapy Experts: Anthony Weiner Not Cured
Buzz Feed ^ | June 17, 2013 | Ruby Cramer

Anthony Weiner stepped down from Congress two years ago with a promise to “heal from the damage” of his sexual Twitter scandal. But sex therapy and addiction experts say the program he enrolled in shortly after his resignation wouldn’t have done much to address the root causes behind the scandal.

Shortly after announcing his comeback bid for mayor of New York City, Weiner told reporters he had spent three days in July 2011 at the Gabbard Center, a psychiatric evaluation center in Houston, Texas. The program “wasn’t an addiction thing,” Weiner told the Daily News last month. “I mean, it was just a place to get away and to meet people… who might be able to help.”

Weiner added that his stay at Gabbard was central to his start as a “new man.”

But the center only provides evaluations, not treatment — and with a patient like Weiner, sex therapists said, there is a big difference. Weiner’s case — an extended period of communication, involving illicit texts and tweets, with multiple strangers — would require not just a three-day evaluation, but an extended treatment program, they told BuzzFeed.

“No one gets treatment in three days,” said Robert Weiss, a sexual addiction therapist with more than 20 years of experience treating high-profile clients. “Three days is an evaluation, but an evaluation isn’t treatment.”

“Somebody who’s crashed and burned at that level needs very intensive short-term treatment, followed by long-term less intensive treatment,” Weiss said. “You get them in residential treatment for 30 to 40 days, then follow through with more therapy.”

He wants to go back to Washington D.C. to have a shot at all those young female interns.

NYC deserves him if they vote for him. The worst part, he might be better than the current Nazi mayor.

Shock therapy and a lobotomy probably would not cure the disorder Anthony Weiner is afflicted with.

The problem is most likely at a cellular level.

The comments on the NY Times site are very negative. Everyone seems to think he’s an ineffective egomaniac.

Marrying Hillary’s girlfriend probably didn’t help either.

He should have stuck it out longer.

Our local morning drive show host has a number of rules to explain Liberal behavior which he calls Quinn's Laws.

Weiner is a poster boy for this one: Liberals never think what they are doing is wrong. They just think it doesn't succeed because they are not allowed to go enough of it.

You can pickle one, though. We got’s ‘em in big jars in our sto’s!!

Also, a truly cured weiner requires the use of sodium nitrite or nitrate, using curing salts usually Prague powder #1, which is 6% sodium nitrite and 94% table salt, or Prague powder #2 which also includes sodium nitrate.

Then, dried weiner... now called summer sausage. Which is what this dude is for real, w/ or w/out tweets.

I can never be sure of course. But I would put money on a bet that he is not attracted to males. I suspect he is predatory/aggressive/bullying in pursuit of females.

Weiner's 3 day therapy reminds me of an episode of South Park. Link
