Because we want to end the day on a humorous note. Via the NY Post:
After weeks of refusing to criticize his so-called Tabloid twin, disgraced governor Eliot Spitzer said this afternoon that serial sexter Anthony Weiner should not be mayor.
Speaking on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” the Luv Gov even said he’d fire any municipal workers who use their office computers to engage in the same perverted behavior as Weiner — who resigned from Congress in 2011 amid a sexting scandal.
“We have had a number of instances over the years where, inevitably of course, municipal employees, state employees have used computers and the like for improper purposes and there’s an appropriate sanction for that — and there should be,” said Spitzer, who’s running for city comptroller.
It’s his first bid for public office since he resigned as New York’s governor amid his own sex scandal – involving high-priced hookers – in 2008.
“You’re not going to vote for Anthony Weiner, can you just say that now?” Matthews pressed on the show. “You don’t think he should be Mayor of New York.”
Spitzer responded, “Fair point. That is correct.”
Matthews then tried to clarify which of the two points Spitzer was responding to by saying, “He should not be mayor of New York?”
“That is correct,” repeated Spitzer.
The article goes on to note that Weiner is tanking in the polls. Not sure about Mr. Spitzer.
