When Anthony Weiner entered the New York City mayor's race last month, few observers expected the disgraced former congressman to become a front-runner to succeed Michael Bloomberg.

Fewer still anticipated that Weiner would poll particularly well among women.

But two surveys released this week show that the married Weiner, who resigned from Congress in 2011 after first lying about and then admitting to lewd online behavior, has surged into the top tier of a crowded Democratic field and that his support among female voters is robust.

Who knew that feminists would be enthusiastic about pulling for Weiner?

You’re right.
Weiner has no shame and voters don’t either.

Surprising? Not to me! I remember reading about all the "women" who said they be glad to be in Lewinski's "position" and give ol' BJC a BJ!

Libs stick together and support each other in things they be disgusted with and condemn in others. Which is just more proof that liberalism is a mental disease.

Talking point being sold by WOMEN FOR ANTHONY, the organization run by his WIFE and her sister.

Hardly an honest account.

I’m not surprised. Look at Bill Clinton and what he did. Women still supported him.

The gals don’t want to be too hard on him. Their support is solid and firm. In other words, they don’t have a bone to pick with Weiner.

You know what’s funny? President Clinton had sex and lied about it, and he kept his job. ]

Anthony Weiner didn’t have sex and lied about it, and lost his.

I guess the lesson here is, if you’re gonna lie, have sex.

Was this purported “support” gleaned from a staff meeting or just a figment of some Politico PR’s fantasy of his viability? Shirley this can’t be real. Can we further deteriorate morally as to reelect Weiner to— and after— his public post?

Women know men are immature jerks.

What we will not tolerate is the Rubio's of the world who say one thing to get elected and another once they have. This sends a strong message to any 'pub who might have something nasty in his/her background....get over it, we will.

Many liberal women subscribe to the theory that “all men are pigs and all women are victims.” Therefore, the Bill Clintons of the world will generally get a pass so long as they support other women causes. The northeast especially is maniacal.

“Weiner Has Surprising Support From Women”

I wonder if we were mistaken about those gross semi-nude photos of that scrawny douchbag, and that those pictures actually WERE appealing to women?

Naw. Probably not. It’s just Democrats being Democrats, i.e., dude is a good little commie and nothing else matters to them.

Maybe the thinking is he'll be a weak mayor who nobody has to take seriously?

Could be a relief after Bloomberg.
