So the Twitter pervert Anthony Weiner has been caught with his internet pants round his ankles yet again. There he was, ahead amongst Democrats vying to become New York Mayor, and with the worst timing possible, a young woman reveals that Mr Weiner – or Carlos Danger as he prefers – was sending her dirty pictures and dirty messages less than a year after he resigned from Congress for sending dirty pictures and dirty messages. Oh and for serially lying about it as well.
In an attempt to rescue his political ambitions yet again, his long-suffering wife stood by him at a press conference to declare that she had forgiven him. “Our marriage, like many others,” she said, “has had its ups and its downs. It took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy to get to a place where I could forgive Anthony. Anthony’s made some horrible mistakes, both before he resigned from Congress and after. But I do very strongly believe that it’s between us and our marriage. I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him.”

Well I’m glad she has been able to forgive him, but what’s this bit about “strongly believing that it’s between us and our marriage”? So the electorate is to ignore this round of transgressions because they are private issues between Mr & Mrs Weiner? Nobody else’s business!
Well I’m sorry to break it to Mrs Weiner, but her husband is not a private citizen. He was a Congressman and now he is attempting to become a Mayor. If she wants it to remain a private affair between the two of them, that’s fine. This can be arranged. All she needs to do is to persuade her husband to get out of politics and out of the public eye and never dare to try another come back.
There is something absolutely breathtaking about a man who clearly can’t govern his own zipper, yet still insists that he is capable of governing a major US city. His opinion on this would be fine, that is if it were only himself and his wife who shared it and the rest of us could just stand there howling with laughter at them as they attempt to persuade us that he really is fit for office. But the tragic thing is that the majority of voters pretty much accept Mrs Weiner’s line – that such incidents are private affairs and nothing to do with the public office. This is borne out by the fact that he was the front runner in the Democrat race before the new scandal emerged.
