    According to the The Dirty.com which published the new pictures and sexts says it happened AFTER Wiener screwed up the first time. The guy is one stupid or arrogant or perverted sumbitch, or probably all three.

    First of all, how does "sexting" someone automatically equate to being a "sexual predator?" Even if the person doing so is married that remains an issue of fidelity between the two spouses, not sexual predation.

    That said, I have met Mr. Weiner several times, having lived in his district in NYC (the borough of Queens). Were I still living there I would not vote for him because I found him to be a man who tried to be all things to all people, thus actually representing no one other than whatever his own personal agenda was.

    As far as sexting, I feel the same about that as I did about Clinton's fooling around...it has nothing to do with a job in government (unless your job is to handle sexual harrassment issues).
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    The NY Post's homepage tease in large font is "Weiner won't pull out." Actual article title is respectable, but here comes another round of plays-on-words. New York Post - New York News | Gossip | Sports | Entertainment | Photos

    I don't care, generally, what others do...if they're single. Sexting is a kind of cheating, and if you can't even honor your commitment to your spouse--your spouse who's already forgiven you and dealt with the public humiliation the first time while being due to give birth any minute--you are surely not able to be a faithful public steward.

    What an arrogant, self-inflated little creep Anthony Weiner is. The boy don't learn. Too dumb to hold public office. He's too busy holding his own anyway.

    I don't know about being a sexual predator, but I know it shows lack of self-control, a narcissistic personality, lack of integrity, inability to honor commitments, and the worst judgment on planet earth. Anyone who thinks that makes for a good representative of the people is . . . fill in the blank.

    Wow, that's a stretch, if you are applying this standard to everyone who engages in sexting. If you choose to apply it to Mr. Weiner in this situation that's different, since you are making a valid moral values judgment about someone seeking your vote for public office.

    Consider me the odd duck, but I believed before and after Clinton and I believe now that elected officials must be vetted before they can be read into information classified secret and above - everyone else handling it is. Now I don't know if or how much secret and above information the mayor of New York is privy to, but my guess there is a need to know because it is New York City.

    Is Wiener the kind of guy who puts himself out there to be blackmailed? He's proving he is.

    Sounds like he's actually qualified to represent quite a few people. I bet if most peoples lives and personal secrets came out into the open, they'd show the same characteristics.

    No, absolutely not applying it to everyone. I'm applying it to anyone who is running for elected office.

    How many of those people continue walking around with their dicks hanging out of the pants after getting busted for it before and at the same time have the cheek to run for public office?
