Anthony Weiner involved in minor car crash in NYC
Boston Globe ^ | August 24, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has emerged unscathed from a minor car crash on a busy Manhattan highway.

Weiner’s spokeswoman says the car he was riding in was involved in a chain-reaction crash Saturday morning on the FDR Drive, which runs along the borough’s east side.

It wasn’t immediately clear where Weiner was headed or if he was on official business.

A Fire Department of New York spokeswoman says no one was hurt in the crash. She says it happened near East 96th Street.

He should know by now not to take pictures while driving. Some objects are very difficult to find in the view finder.

You are correct sir. It is hard to concentrate on driving. Oops, poor choice of words. I should say, it is difficult to concentrate on driving.

Chain-reaction accident, evidently. Both ends might've been involved simultaneously.

In a car, he was difficult. Mr. Weiner would take the front passenger seat, argue over directions and insist on making every yellow light, pointing to the car ahead and declaring: “If he makes it, you make it.”

His staff had the highest turnover in the New York City delegation, and some aides complained about his behavior. In 2005, he became so irritated with a staff member that he threw a salad against the wall, then left the room as the dressing slowly dripped, leaving a stain. Another time, arguing with an aide, Mr. Weiner threw his BlackBerry against a wall, then blamed the aide for the broken phone.

He could be spending campaign funds, which is allegedly regulated.

I says it was a chain reaction, so I’m guessing someone from behind smacked Weiner, after which Weiner rear-ended the poor unsuspecting motorist in front of him.

So sort of a sadomasochistic menage a trois, in a manner of speaking?

That's what it sounds like to me. But then again, he is a Dem, and Dems seem to be pretty into that kind of sick stuff.

He was on his way to another “hook up” probably.

Racism was gone. Then the whole thing was revitalized by the TV Miniseries ROOTS and OPRAH's role in it, which is where she got her big financial foundation.

Most people don't know she is behind the push for 'blacks' to rule and have white people as slaves. To kill them because you want to. To ignore the laws of the land and do as they (and she ) pleases, as if they are ROYALTY.

Oprah had a DNA test which supposedly showed she was the direct descendant of a Zulu Princess. Even though DNA can show no such thing. There is no Zulu Princess gene.

Now, most all black people believe they are descendants of African Tribal Royalty. The truth is that if they truly were, they would not have been captured by roaming Warrior Tribes and sold as slaves.

BTW, BLACK people brought slavery to America. They brought or arranged to transport of the slaves, and sold them to white farmers. The Plantation owners did not mistreat their 'slaves', because that is about the most stupid thing you can do. It would be like setting fire to your tractor.

Just like in the movie DJANGO UNCHAINED, the real whip cracker, the real monster , was not the plantation owner, but the head n*gger.

It was also at that time that whites , especially liberals , went into contortions saying "slavery was bad. We were bad. We treated them terribly. We owe them.

Problem is.... none of the book is true. Haley took another book , plagiarized it, and changed the details. The original book was about the treatment of Jews under Nazi Occupation.

No on called Haley on it, because....he was 'black', and because the Miniseries broke all ratings records and made the network, studio, producers, actors insanely rich.

Exactly what official business would that be? Didn’t he resign from his Congressional seat?
