Why Won’t Weiner Quit?

Targeted by jokes and slipping in the polls, he still stays in the race

August 5, 2013

NEW YORK — Why doesn’t Anthony Weiner just quit? It’s a question angry voters, pundits and fellow politicians have been asking almost nonstop in the nearly two weeks since the New York City Democrat......

This guy is a DISGRACE to New York and America.

Weiner needs to "pull out".

If he were a GOP, he would be LONG GONE.

"A prominent political donor and his dietary supplement company have been cooperating for several months with federal prosecutors in a fast-moving public corruption investigation of Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell, according to three people familiar with the probe.

Jonnie R. Williams Sr., chief executive of Star Scientific, has turned over personal financial records and sat for interviews in which he provided firsthand accounts of luxury gifts and more than $120,000 given to McDonnell (R) and his family members since 2011, the people said."

This corrupt and potential GOP Presidential candidate is a disgrace to Virginia and America. If he were a corrupt Dem, he would be long gone.

Because: Weiner = Bill Clinton + iPhone + Twitter + (power/money-hungry wife x 2) – Benghazi.

Simple Democrat math.

NO GOP story ever compares with the Sordid tale of Gerry STUDDS (R) from Massachusetts (yes REAL NAME like WEINER!!!) who had gay sex with an underage congressional page.

He refused to apologize or accept blame because he thought he did nothing wrong.

The DEMS gave him a STANDING OVATION for being the first OPENLY gay man who in Congress!!!!

What a piece of SH**, raping a 17 old boy!

BBBWHAHAHAHAHAAHAH!

Why won’t Weiner quit? His repeatedly abused wife probably ponders the same embarrassing question every day. Reminds me of another famous Democrit wife facing the very public that fact her infamous zipper-loose President husband couldn’t quit playing hide the cigar with the young White House interns. Fidelity is something in which Democrits are notoriously lacking.

But this is typical behavior for Democrit pols, so as long as you keep electing Democrits you’ll just have to learn to deal with it. If you keep your kids away from Twitter and don’t let them listen to the investigation hearings they won’t be exposed to as much Democrit filth.

Gee tool- Your post is rather comical. I presume you keep those blinders on when Repubs go by the wayside, and still vote for them with your narrow minded straight ticket mentality. LOL

I think we could change this question to 'why won't duwhop or toolplayer quit'. Instead they sit here and parrot unpopular right wing talk entertainers like it is the truth. You lost, it's been over 5 years.........get over it!

If he were a corrupt Dem,he would be running for Governor of Virginia!

"An electric-car company co-founded by Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D) is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission over its conduct in soliciting foreign investors, according to law enforcement documents and company officials." (WaPo)

McAuliffe is a truly gifted investor though having several times (including Global Crossing which paid off to GW & Hillary) turned $100 investments into million $ paydays!

Wonderliar the question isn't about any GOP anything, it is the WHY IS a SCUMBAG DEMOCRAT named ANTHONY WEINER still running.

It is hilarious you cannot answer that question, just CHANGE the focus to anything BUT the question.

FOCUS, witch, FOCUS.

wonderwhiner “Gee tool- Your post is rather comical”

So you Progressive Liberals find serial infidelity and adultery “comical”? You Progressive Liberals find lying to your wife, to your family, and to the American People “comical”? No surprise there. You’re liberals.

And the Republican story is: Virginia's scandal-mired Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell may be facing criminal charges over gifts and loans from a wealthy donor.

Republican Governor Sanford of South Carolina resigns after his hike turned out to be a romp in South America with a floosy courtesy of the taxpayers. Deserts wife and kids for sex affair!

@wonder 'why won't duwhop or toolplayer quit'. Instead they sit here and parrot unpopular right wing talk entertainers like it is the truth.'

They can't. This *is* their job. Sitting in sweat stained cubicles they, and other script reading low wage failures pump out political propaganda for nickels and dimes. Useful idiots of the 1 percent they can never join.

Nickels and dimes? LOL I get $7.25 an hour to do this hard work, and Mr. Limbaugh has told me I can get Obamacare next year, although he's waffling on that Obamacare promise now that his fellow 1-percenter Barry Obama slipped that program into 2015...

So we have a Governor who "may" be facing charges and a Senator who left is wife (albeit in a bizarre manner) vs a Congressman who resigned in disgrace, but did the same thing AGAIN (w/ 6-10 women) and somehow thought he'd be a great mayor. AND a pervert Mayor in San Diego whose sexual assault total is approaching a dozen. I guess liberals really hate a war on women, but an casualty is just fine!

Hypocrites

I was going to leave my cubicle job as a propaganda writer to take an Obamacare call center job, but it turned out to be part time and offered no health care!!
