Fame Whores Fail: Sydney Leathers Crashes Weiner Election Party

By: Wednesday September 11, 2013 2:30 pm

Sydney Leathers showed up–uninvited– at Anthony Weiner’s NYC election concession party (cue sad trombone). And she wore red. Leathers played Weiner for her own advancement in the sex industry; and he was trapped by a woman with fewer morals, but more honesty, than he.

Dix Pix Nix Clix

Seeing as how our own local mayor is having his own grabby-kissy-headlocky-you-work-better-without-panties problems with the ladies which has brought The Pox of Allred upon our fair city (the only way to stop Gloria Allred from getting to a microphone is to put an actual courtroom between her and a podium) I have been loath to point out that NYC’s Anthony Weiner seems to lack the good judgement and the ability to make common sense decisions that one would come to expect from a Big City Mayor.

Bryan Fischer: Anthony Weiner Scandal Proof that Gays Shouldn’t Hold Public Office

Only Bryan Fischer can attach the LGBT community to the newest scandal regarding New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner.

Anthony Weiner Might Actually Win the New York City Mayoral Race

By: Wednesday June 26, 2013 2:45 pm

It seems Anthony Weiner may be the final piece of proof that “scandals” of purely of a sexual and personal nature are no longer a significant hindrance in American politics. The latest NBC NY/WSJ/Marist poll of the New York City mayoral race found that Weiner’s standing has improved significantly and he now has a very good chance of actually winning.

NYC Mayor: Weiner’s Support Grows but the Runoff Will Be a Problem

By: Wednesday May 29, 2013 8:30 am

Since Anthony Weiner officially announced his return to politics, his support in the New York mayoral race has grown significantly. According to a new Marist poll, he is now in second place, trailing Christine Quinn by only five points in the Democratic primary.

Weiner Is Back

By: Wednesday May 22, 2013 7:35 am

Now that individuals like David Vitter and Mark Sanford have proven there is simply no sex based scandal that a heterosexual male politician can’t recover from, it has encouraged Anthony Weiner to get back into politics. Just two years after resigning from Congress because of sending sexual pictures to random women, Weiner is launching a new campaign.

Hard To Believe But Weiner Is Being A Total Dick To A Stiff

By: Friday April 12, 2013 6:00 pm

In case you missed it, earlier this week marked the kick-off of former Congressman and notorious cocksman Anthony Weiner’s 2013 Reputation Rehab and Sorry I Tweeted My Wang At Your Face World Tour. No, it probably won’t be coming to the Hard Rock in your city, no matter how appropriate that may seem, which is too bad because I bet the tour t-shirts are awesome.

Cain’s Crisis: It’s Often the Coverup, Not the Scandal, That Does the Damage

By: Tuesday November 1, 2011 10:00 am

Herman Cain has managed to turn sexual harassment allegations from the 90s into a current credibility crisis over his often changing explanations and denials. This seems another case of the coverup doing more damage than the original allegations.

Democrats Panic, Dump Hundreds of Thousands into NY-09 Race

By: Thursday September 8, 2011 2:25 pm

Incredibly, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is launching a half-million dollar ad buy into New York City with one weekend to go until a special House election in NY-09, the seat once held by Anthony Weiner. That half a million dollars would have come in very handy next year, when Democrats make a push to take back the House, no? Instead, it’s being chewed up in the expensive New York City media market to protect a bad candidate whose district will probably get chopped up in redistricting anyway.
