    Sext fiend Anthony Weiner is a registered Democrat — but his inner “mongoose” is apparently unaffiliated. The disgraced former congressman and husband to top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin fired off suggestive messages last year to at least two women — one of whom is a prominent Republican and another who volunteered for a GOP political campaign, a source told The Post. “Now that I don’t have the New York Post following me around maybe we can get together,” he allegedly wrote to the prominent GOPer, according to the source....“It has nothing to do with The Post, it has everything...

    Here is one more reason for Hillary Clinton to short circuit. “Carlos Danger” just re-invented himself as a mongoose. The New York Post on Saturday published Anthony Weiner’s racy direct Twitter messages to a male college Republican leader who catfished him from the girlie handle “Nikki.” Weiner, at a Los Angeles hotel last month for an appearance on “Real Time With Bill Maher,” playfully described himself as a “mongoose,” joked about his “staff” and even gave “Nikki” his personal cell phone number so “she” could locate him. “Text and I’ll hit that location button thing,” the husband of Clinton’s top-aide...

    First he was Carlos Danger. Now - in yet another sexting scandal — he's a randy "mongoose." Sext fiend Anthony Weiner boasted of his animal prowess - claiming he was "deceptively strong . . . like a mongoose" - and gave his cellphone number to a college student during a flirty, private online chat on a recent trip to Los Angeles, The Post has learned. But the joke was on the horndog pol, whose wife, Huma Abedin, is a top aide and close confidante of Hillary Clinton. The target of his online affection was really a dude.

    Sydney Leathers — the woman whom horndog Anthony Weiner sexted as “Carlos Danger,” torpedoing his mayoral campaign in 2013 — has accused the pervy former pol of being up to his old tricks again, with yet another woman. Leathers on Thursday posted a scathing review of the recent documentary “Weiner” — which covers the sexting scandal — on Beltway blog Washington Babylon, and in Leathers’ “thumbs down” notice, she writes that Weiner’s “behavior will continue. In fact, I am certain his behavior continues to this day because a woman who claims to be one of his current sexting partners has...

    My Fox colleagues are in Cleveland, diligently interviewing Republicans. Next week, they'll interview Democrats. I'm glad they do it -- because I despise most politicians. There are exceptions, of course, but after years of reporting, I've concluded that most politicians have little to say that's interesting, and many are craven opportunists, desperate to rule over others. A few stand out, like former Congressman Anthony Weiner. Like many politicians, he's never held a real job. He's run for office or worked for politicians all his life. Weiner married one of Hillary Clinton's closest advisers, passionately pushed leftists' bad ideas and was...

    (JTA) It’s just before Rosh Hashanah in 2013, and New York City’s mayoral campaign is heating up. Disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner, who in a surprise move had thrown his hat in the ring a few months earlier, is doing one of those obligatory photo ops at a Jewish bakery in Brooklyn. All is going well. Weiner has picked up an order of cookies laced with honey — sweets for the New Year — and even insisted on paying full retail. As he is leaving the store, though, a man wearing a kippah calls him a “scumbag” and a “deviant.”...

    Ms. Abedin, a longtime Clinton confidante, served as Secretary Clinton’s deputy chief-of-staff at the State Department and is now vice chairwoman of Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 campaign for the presidency. For about a half-year toward the end of Abedin’s tenure at the State Department, which coincided with Secretary Clinton’s own departure from the State Department in February 2013, Abedin was given a highly unusual and ethically dubious arrangement. She was permitted to work simultaneously for the State Department, Teneo, the Clinton Foundation, and even in a personal capacity for Mrs. Clinton in order to manage the secretary’s transition back to the...

Huma Abedin, the Pakistani-American chief of staff to Clinton, was wed in 2010 to then-Congressman Anthony Weiner, the Democrat whose star fell to earth amid lewd sexting scandals. Republicans in Washington are furious with Clinton for destroying tens of thousands of emails dating from her time in office, and for including classified information in an unknown number of others.

New York voters puzzle over why Weiner stays in the race despite constant ridicule. The city’s tabloids pump out streams of headlines punning on his name while late-night comics have made him a national punch line. Instead of dropping out, Weiner has embraced the media maelstrom in a calculated gamble that voters would respect his toughness and dedication to their issues.

    The most interesting question surrounding the campaigns of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer is not whether they can win. Instead, it is whether their candidacies signal a shift in the values and priorities of voters when it comes to political sex scandals. The main difference between past and current political sex scandals is not the frequency with which they occur, but rather the time it takes to recover from them. In the past, once a politician’s sex scandal was revealed, it often took him (it’s almost always him) many years to regain credibility with the public, if he regained it...

    Anthony Weiner’s campaign fund-raising has virtually dried up since revelations of a sexting relapse rocked his bid for mayor. Weiner received an average of just $1,897 a day in donations since the new sexting scandal erupted July 23, campaign finance records released Friday show. That’s a trickle of the $16,434 he received each day, on average, in the 50 days after launching his run for mayor on May 22. The records also show that Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, collected no money on his behalf since the new sexting allegations emerged, after she collected nearly $150,000 in the first 50...

    If you can’t win, you might as well go down swinging. At senior citizens. At an AARP-Univision mayoral forum this morning, mayoral contender Anthony Weiner pulled out the age card to taunt his most vocal challengers, 69-year-old Doe Fund founder George McDonald. Weiner is 48. Before the debate, Weiner put a hand on McDonald’s back and said hello, prompting McDonald to reply: “I would appreciate if you would never touch me again.” Weiner retorted: “What are you going to do about it, grandpa?” according to two sources. A mild overreaction by McDonald, but in his defense, who knows where that...

    Anthony Weiner’s sext buddy Sydney Leathers says that the former congressman and would-be mayor of New York contacted her “as recently as April 12,” contradicting Weiner’s account of the timeline. Leathers made the allegation in a post she wrote on xoJane, in which she tells her “10 secrets for seducing a politician,” just “in case,” she writes, “anyone wants to be as stupid as I was.” “Anthony says he hasn’t been cheating on Huma for six months,” she writes. “Wrong. He last contacted me as recently as April 12. Straight up lies.” Leathers went public with the existence of her...

    There’s Danger in the streets . . . Carlos Danger!

Sporting bright blue pants, a bullhorn and an Ecuadorean flag, Weiner repeatedly shouted, “Que viva Ecuador!” to the crowd as he energetically ran down Northern Boulevard in Queens with his loyal interns following.

    If anyone deserves a spa day, it's Anthony Weiner’s wife. The long-suffering Huma Abedin — who has kept a low profile since her husband’s latest sexting scandal broke — emerged from seclusion on Thursday and headed to the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa on Fifth Avenue. Ever the city girl, the stylish Abedin — clad in a belted shirt dress and cream cardigan — hopped the 6 train uptown for her day of pampering at the iconic spa. "I'm just getting my hair cut,” she told The News. Despite the strain of the scandal, Abedin showed no signs of stress....

    My unsolicited advice to Anthony Weiner is to drop out of the race for mayor of New York City. But since you insist on staying, hold a press conference: My fellow New Yorkers,The New York Times, among others, tells me to quit the race. Here’s my proposition. I’ll resign when the Times poses this question. In the upcoming NBC-produced miniseries called “Hillary,” who will play Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey? What, confused expressions? Interesting how the Weiner-get-out crowd forgets that “everybody lies about sex” — except when it comes to politicians whose last name is not Clinton. Digital First Media,...

    Graft: The relationship between the Clintons and the wife of embattled Anthony Weiner grows curiouser and curiouser. Forget sexting; this may be the real scandal. And one senator sees a possible criminal element to it. Republican Chuck Grassley, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is demanding documents from the State Department shedding more light on the private consulting work that Huma Abedin, aka Mrs. Weiner, performed while working for the government, where she had access to top secret information. Abedin served as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's deputy chief of staff, where she earned $135,000 a year. But...
