At his watershed press conference circus on June 6, 2011, Weiner claimed he "never had an intention of having a relationship with underage women" and blustered that the girls he communicated with "weren't young, per se." Per se? Just a few days later, Weiner was forced to admit that he had exchanged "at least five private messages on Twitter" with the Delaware girl, not two messages as initially reported. He also denied that any messages to the teen were "explicit" or "indecent."
But can the serial liar be believed? Over the past several weeks as he has attempted to "move past" the past, Weiner has admitted that more creepoid photos or messages may surface. He told WNYC: "People may decide they want to come forward and say, here's another email that I got or another photo. I'm certainly not going to do that. So people may hear things that are true, they may hear things that are not true, but I'm going to try to keep being focused on issues that are important to New York City."
Silly me, but perhaps the predatory perv behavior of one of the Big Apple's leading mayoral candidates should be an issue of concern. As I pointed out when the late, great Andrew Breitbart broke Weinergate wide open two years ago, stories about Weiner's hot pursuits of young Capitol Hill interns date back to 2001. At least one young woman told liberal Vanity Fair magazine that Weiner hunted down her email address, bragged about riding on Air Force One and extended an invitation to visit his office in person.
Trolling habits die hard. And all the sex therapy in the world can't cure pathological skeeviness. The man who wants to be New York's mayor was willing to blame truth-seeker Breitbart for "hacking" into his rancid social media accounts. He was willing to mislead his lifelong Democratic pals and enlist them in his phony smear conspiracy to cover his lurid macking tracks.
This is not merely a "private matter." It's about public fitness for office. Anthony Weiner thinks he should be put back in political power because he effectively champions "middle-class" values. Middle-class New Yorkers who value decency, honesty and safe work and online environments for your young daughters, speak now or forever hold your peace.
