Today, more photos surfaced of Anthony Weiner (D-NY) showing off his buff (??) body for the world to see on his Twitter account. After lying about the photos and not being able to say with “certitude” that the photos were of him, he has finally admitted to the sordid mess that has become the Weiner Affair! Even Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman-Shultz have called for Weiner to end the embarrassment and resign. But, in typical narcissistic, progressive manner, Weiner has stiffened his back and said that he wants a PAID leave of absence so he can go to rehab….the normal excuse for the privileged! Anthony, rehab won’t cure STUPID! And, what if Anthony was an executive with a private corporation? Would he be given the opportunity to go on PAID leave with benefits to pursue his personal issues after making a mockery of his position and his company? The answer is a unequivocal, “NO!” He would be fired (or asked to retire if he was vested) in the real world! Only in Congress can a person besmirch the code of conduct and hang around to enjoy the good life.
How can Weiner not resign? He has caused immeasurable damage to his new marriage with his now-pregnant wife. Let’s hope she will have more moxie than Hillary and will not “stand by her man.” And, where is the National Organization of Women (NOW)? One of the people who received a Weiner twit was a young girl! It is time for Anthony to throw in the towel (no pun intended) and back out of the national spotlight. Do yourself, your wife, the Democratic Party, and the nation a favor and just disappear! The country has too many problems that Congress should be trying to solve…..and Weiner’s escapades are distractions we do not need!
