    Men may be ready to forgive Anthony Weiner. Although women continue to have their doubts about the scandal-scarred pol, a new poll released Tuesday found that Democratic men named Weiner as their top choice for mayor more than they did any other candidate. And men are leading the way for Weiner as he gains altitude among all Democratic voters, dramatically cutting into front-runner Christine Quinn’s lead and underscoring the dramatic impact the ex-congressman has had on the race in mere days. “Weiner is clearly a factor to be considered in the mayoralty,” said Lee Miringoff, who directs the Marist College...
  • MILLER: Anthony Weiner is a twit who treats women like dirt

    Anthony Weiner thinks his brief absence from elected office means the public will forget his disrespect and disdain for women. He’s wrong. He didn’t just treat strange women like sex objects, he harassed female journalists who work on Capitol Hill. Two of us work at The Washington Times.

    This morning on a radio show, New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted that more lewd photos could come out: “It is what it is,” Weiner told the radio host in his first live interview since announcing his mayoral bid. “People may decide they want to come forward and say, here’s another email that I got or another photo. I’m certainly not going to do that. So people may hear things that are true, they may hear things that are not true, but I’m going to try to keep being focused on issues that are important to New York...

    A young progressive political operative identifying herself as “Syndney Leathers” has been identified as the woman who exchanged sexually provocative text messages and photos with New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner after his resignation from Congress.“Leathers,” who lists herself online as a field organizer for the pro-Obama group Organizing for Action, was fingered Tuesday by Buzzfeed as Weiner’s sexting partner. “Leathers” previously tweeted her support for Weiner on multiple occasions, even listing Weiner third on her list of “heroes,” which was topped by President Obama and included Bill Maher, Keith Olbermann, Jon Stewart, and Charlie Sheen.Weiner admitted in a press...
  • We Have A Weiner: Glenn Beck’s The Blaze Quickly Scoops Up Carlos

    Glenn Beck, to borrow a phrase, was mocking Anthony Weiner before mocking Anthony Weiner was cool. When Weiner went after Beck and other conservative radio hosts for their involvement with the group Goldline, Beck responded with the mock site, which closed shop shortly after Weiner announced his resignation from Congress. But with today’s new revelations about more Weiner sexts under the alias Carlos Danger, Beck’s The Blaze apparently couldn’t resist and got the URL to redirect to one of its shows. Aside from being the obvious next protagonist of an international spy thriller movie series, Carlos Danger was...

    "As many of you who have followed this campaign know, I've spent a good deal out on the campaign trail at churches and street fairs, parades, but this is the first time I've spoken at a press conference, and you'll have to bear with me because I'm pretty nervous and I wrote down what I wanted to say," Abedin started. "When we faced this publicly two years ago, it was the beginning of a time in our marriage that was very difficult, and it took us a very long time to get through it.

    Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted today he had another extended, raunchy online sexual relationship with a young woman — just months after resigning in disgrace from Congress in a sexting scandal. But he won't be dropping out of the race. And his wife, Huma Abedin, is standing by him. Abedin says Weiner "made some horrible mistakes," but that she has forgiven him and believes in him.

The former congressman, who apologized for the lewd picture scandal that ended his House career before launching a bid last month for New York City mayor, is holding a fundraiser hosted by “Women for Anthony” next week at the Manhattan home of an education activist and philanthropist. The host committee is led by his wife, Huma Abedin, and includes her sister, Heba; Rory Tahari, wife of designer Elie Tahari; and Cheryl Saban, the wife of California-based mega-donor Haim Saban, who funded...

Started with the line, “Customers still taunt Lisa Weiss.” "‘Talk dirty to me,’ they joke. ‘We know you like it.’ Colleagues still refuse to speak with her,” Barbaro wrote, according to a Google News search. Another sentence in the article apparently said: “For those on the other end of Anthony D. Weiner’s sexually explicit conversations, the episode damaged careers, disrupted educations.”(continued)

    TWT‘s Emily Miller isn’t exactly shy and wilting. So her story this afternoon, in which she clocks former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) for the way she alleges that he treated female journalists, shouldn’t shock you. But it might. Miller’s report includes her own account and that of her colleague, Susan Crabtree. “He didn’t just treat strange women like sex objects,” she writes, “he harassed female journalists who work on Capitol Hill. Two of us work at The Washington Times.” And so it begins, the media frenzy that will be Weiner’s bid for New York mayor. “Weiner clearly doesn’t respect women...
  • The Media Censorship That Put Barack Obama Back in the White House

    ...Network evening news viewers in 2012 never once heard the embarrassing prediction by Obama’s economic team that passage of the $787 billion “stimulus” would halt the rise of unemployment at 8%. (In reality, the jobless rate stayed above that mark for 44 months, the worst economic performance since the Great Depression.) There was just a single network mention last year (on ABC) of Obama’s broken promise of cutting the federal budget deficit “by half by the end of my first term in office.” Reporters on CBS and NBC never once brought up this inconvenient truth. All three evening newscasts buried...

    Anthony Weiner’s campaign did not respond Tuesday to repeated inquiries about a new set of unverified images suggesting that he exchanged sexually charged messages — and an explicit image — with a woman last summer.The screenshots of conversations — on the nightlife site The Dirty — could not be independently confirmed. They consist of screenshots of exchanges on Facebook and the lesser-known social network Formspring between a woman (whose avatar is blurred) and a man alleged to be (and who she appears to believe) is Weiner, but who also uses the handle “Carlos Danger.” The site’s anonymous tipster claims that...

    It was bound to happen sooner or later: An anonymous woman has claimed to the Arizona-based gossip and nudies site The Dirty that she carried on an explicit online affair with mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner — after he was busted and forced to resign from Congress for the exact same thing. "She was lured by Anthony Weiner post scandal via Facebook," wrote the site's editor Nik Ritchie yesterday. "They had a relationship for 6 months and she believed they were in love ... The relationship consisted of Anthony Weiner and Anonymous sending sexually explicit pictures of each other and having...

    Typically we wouldn't note such tabloid gutter trash as the pilot episode to the upcoming reality show "In The Carlos Danger Zone with the Weiners", but since what is going on in the farce that is NYC's mayoral race is just another analogy for America's broken market, broken politics, broken morals and, ultimately, broken society, this deserves at least a few words, so here they are. Anthony Weiner resigned from Congress after being exposed for having a "sexting problem." As it turns out the Democratic mayoral candidate's sexting problem never went away, and continued well after said resignation with at...

    Noting the comeback campaigns of Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner in New York, feminist author Hanna Rosin wonders why “50 years into the sexual revolution” women politicians lag so far behind men in the sex-scandal tally. She notes biological and evolutionary explanations only to reject them in favor of the idea that women are just too unused to power to abuse it in that way. She’s cheered, though, by surveys showing that younger women are cheating on their spouses almost as much as men, and confidently looks forward to the not-too-distant day when we’ll “find ourselves willing to look past...
