There’s a saying that I always live by, especially when your a minority having to deal with the police all the time.
“Never give anyone a reason!”
Congressman Anthony Weiner should have taken that page from my book!
Today, the Representative from Brooklyn finally admitted that he tweeted a photo of his bulging underpants to a young woman, and that he also admitted to “inappropriate” exchanges with six women before and after he got married. He apologized about it for lying but said he would not resign his New York House seat.
It’s up to the voters of his Brooklyn district to figure out if they want to re-elect Congressman Weiner and its up to his wife if she wants to forgive him. In any case, Congressman Weiner had to know that texting & sending messages and sending photos were going to come back to haunt him. He probably thought he could get away with it because he was in a position of power. But then again, power does strange things to people and in Congressman Weiner’s case, it made him “drunk with power”.
The congressman’s admission doesn’t vindicates anyone. Especially conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, who hijacked the microphone before the press conference asking for an apology from the congressman.
Breitbat’s website, BigGovernment.com, posted photos purportedly from a second woman who said she received shirtless shots of the congressman. The site said the pictures were in a cache of intimate online photographs, chats and email exchanges the woman claimed to have. The scene made Breitbart look like a 12 year old kid…very childish!
The scandal also doesn’t make anyone smarter. In fact, it makes the American people more dumber by the minute! It only distracts from the real problems the country faces!
That reminds me!
Mister Speaker! Where are the jobs?
