NEW YORK (AP) New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner met with Superstorm Sandy victims Friday on Staten Island as he tried to move past the sexting scandal threatening to derail his political comeback attempt.
The former congressman traveled to the furthest reaches of the city to tour the ruined home of Joseph Cardinale, a 14-year resident of a beachfront neighborhood still hurting from the storms deadly tidal surge. The house, overgrown and stripped to the studs, will have to be torn down and Cardinale is upset about how difficult it has been to rebuild.
Weiner said he visited the neighborhood because he wanted to bring attention to the plight of storm victims.
One of the reasons why were here today is that I knew that now, youre gonna come with me. And you should see this, he told reporters. There is this notion because the cameras had left, because some of the headlines changed, that the problem was solved. But for many, many people, they are still dealing with the challenge.
But even in that setting he couldnt escape the scandal. After walking through the destroyed house and meeting several neighbors who also shared their Sandy horror stories, he was confronted by retired schoolteacher Peg Brunda.
The teacher is right. Why reward someone for behavior that would get you fired? That’s how Dems want it: exceptions for their bad acts. Punishment for anyone else.
Yeah, right. He wants to try and get the attention away from his sex scandals. By the way I thought Obama had already fixed the storm problems. Chis Chistie says so.
Weiner is not pulling out in New York...
The problem is that New York City is virtually a state of its own. Practically its own country and whatever policies Mayor Danger might institute could affect the rest of us.
