Weiner, Sanford make headlines again … & again, NOT in a good way

From the “PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!” files:

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday more controversial photos from his time in Congress may exist.

Weiner resigned in 2011 after images of him in various states of undress surfaced. The New York lawmaker sent the images via Twitter to women he met online.

“If reporters want to go try to find more, I can’t say that they’re not going to be able to find another picture, or find another — you know, person who may want to come out on their own, but I’m not going to contribute to that,” Weiner told RNN-TV.

“The basics of the story are not gonna change, it’s behind me, it was a huge mistake.”

Weiner was also asked if it was possible that women would come forward to reveal that they had met the senator in person, presumably to conduct an extramarital affair.

“I never met the women who were at the the other end of these anonymous conversations,” Weiner said.

Let’s please, please hope he’s at least telling the truth on the  affairs thing, primarly so as to spare his wife Huma from another humiliating sex scandal. Also, to know other pictures exist of him out there in, er, “risque” poses doesn’t exactly give me a good feeling in the pit of my tummy as to what the future holds for the former NY rep. Hopefully they don’t surface, because I’m really not up for any more “Weiner” jokes … pun intended. ;)

And in Mark Sanford news, well … this is what happened today:

Politico has a more complete story, but I don’t think one is really necessary. The picture speaks volumes. And not in a good way. Yes, Colbert Busch should debate him more than once, but still – he, unsurprisingly, hasn’t been doing himself any favors lately. This isn’t going to help matters. I hearby give his latest political stunt an “F” grade – for FAIL. 8-|

    That they each had to slink out the door in disgrace with their respective tails tucked between their legs is one thing. But to seek to reclaim a position in public life provides living proof of the old adage, “Every jackass thinks they are fit to stand with the king’s horses.”

    For what it’s worth, the ony thing remarkable about Weiner’s frontal photos is he at one time fractured his right clavicle.

    Extremely few times do I wish for a Democrap to win, but if Sanford isn’t soundly defeated (to the point of political AND personal embarrassment) he will continue showing up on the ballot until he’s too feeble to make it into the courthouse.

    What he obviously doesn’t realize is that he defeated himself to the point of political and personal embarrassment with his unethical and immoral behavior, but how could he? He has no moral compass to gauge by.

    Carlos, I am sure Sanford will be defeated. Most likely he was voted in by dems who voted for him, to get him on the ballot, but will never vote for him in the election. I expect a landslide against him, but who can say. – Lorica
