Once again I turn on the news and watch another politician vehemently denying any involvement in a salacious scandal, blaming others, acting indignant -- and then, when confronted with the truth, having a tearful mea culpa. At least this time, the wife had the good sense not to stand by his side.
Anthony Weiner has proved that he is skillful at mendacity and being a serial sexual predator. Is this stupid and immature man the person that voters want to represent their interests? There seems to be a genetic defect in many of these politicians lately, namely character. What happened to men with values and decency? Weiner said he lied because he was embarrassed and wanted to protect his family. No, I'm sorry but he lied because he thought he could get away with it.
I find it even more incredible that Weiner still feels he should remain in office, and refuses to step down. When a politician is more interested in shooting photos of his reproductive organs and sending them across the Internet to young women, one really has to question not only his value system but his judgment.
