Weiner stands a good chance at being elected. After all, he's a democrat, and character, decency and patriotism have never entered into the equation. They will keep drunkards, liars, traitors, adulterers, philanderers, perverts, cowards, and rapists in office for decades. And afterward, they'll hold them up as "heroes," e.g. the "lion of the senate" and elevate them to the position of "elder statesman" of the party.
