I'm European.It's ridiculous how people in the US make a huge scandal out of almost nothing.

If that pic shows his real d*** and if I were his wife, I would never let him go.... :-)

he's still lying

you just know that anyone as STUPID and ARROGANT as him was using his government office/computer/working time for some of this

CAN'T BELIEVE THE VOTERS IN NEW yORK THINK IT'S OK!
he should show a bit of dignity (if not for himself, then for his wife) and resign

and his wife shouldn't get advice from Hillary Clinton

standing by your cheating man is not a healthy thing to do--unless she, like Hillary, has her own political agenda in mind

I think it's because when they stretch laffy taffy as a child it improves and makes it better so they carry that on to their way of life, like stupid **** like telling the truth.

I have a theory about this incident. He did this purposely because he has very low self esteem and no self worth. I think all that teasing about his name and image from the past got to him and when that idiot down in Texas wrote that message "hottt" after a speech she heard from him, he thought, this will show all those people who picked on me and teased me that i am attractive. I saw his pathetic excuse of a "forgive me" speech. It was such junk. He is a selfish jerk and must resign. He wanted all this for attention. He is a joke politician and needs to go. When he does something so moronic and then adds, "I will not resign". Yeah, this was all a plan. He doesn't care about his constituents.

This guy is a wacko. He is clearly desperate for attention - he was only married 11 months - what a loser. Why did he do it?
Because he is so freakin ugly he is trying to use other methods to make himself feel attractive. Weiner - you are not attractive even if "IT" hangs down your legs and you can hang it out the window. You are still one butt ugly individual.

Before Weinergate, Anthony Weiner was the most outspoken, self-righteous, self-proclaimed intellectual bully in Congress.

As Joe Scarborough said to him during an interview: "Anthony, no matter how loud you yell it, it still is not true!"

And then Weinergate... Most amazing is Weiner's stupidity... Everyone knows the internet doesn't forget. Stupid Weiner is NOT smarter than a 12 year old. Obviously, sex for horny Weiner is top priority, running the U.S.A. is a low priority.

John Mayer tanked his career by simply saying he has a Benetton heart and a David Dukakis c**k? What in the world should publicly sexting with a porn star do to a Congressman's career?

Put a fork in him.

marknyc:
that's what all the politicians do, no?
but weiner did nothing wrong (at least he didn't really cheat): others went all the way and some even got away with it (including the lies)
****************************************************************

What do you think the cops would do to you if you filed a false police report? You would be arrested and charged with a crime, not to mention being court ordered to reimburse the department for any monies spent investigating your false claim? While it is not illegal to cheat on your spouse, it is illegal to lie to police, FBI, members of Congress, etc.....If ANY of this idiots' lies resulted in any law enforcement agency (local, state, and/or federal) spending money/man power investigating a false claim, then he has committed a crime. If ANY of the photos, text messages, etc were transmitted using government property, then he has committed a crime. I just hope the people of NY are smart enough not to re-elect a known LIAR.

Had he just not been stupid enough to get his PR people involved there would be no reason for him to resign (since this was about his personal life not his job). But if he is crossing the line into using public resources in this he is cooked.

Judging by the photo TMZ posted, Weiner has got a whole lot of shaft.
