Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos Danger, was still sexting ladies after his 2011 scandal

This story has moved from political curiosity to full-fledged pop culture freakshow, I’m sorry to say. Back in 2011, Anthony Weiner was forced out of Congress (by his own Democratic caucus) after lying (repeatedly) about the fact that he was sexting young women and sending them dong photos. Weiner, then a prominent Democratic representative, did one of those awful faux-apology news conferences with his beautiful wife standing next to him. His wife is Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s closest and most beloved staffers – Clinton has even referred to Huma as her “second daughter”. That was 2011. Huma was pregnant at the time.

Then the next year (summer 2012), Anthony Weiner made the media rounds, doing an apology tour and showing off his baby boy, and Huma was by his side for all of it. They talked about the troubles in their marriage, and Anthony said repeatedly that it was all over. And so people were like “Hey, I guess. Whatever.” And so Weiner decided to run for New York mayor this year, and he’s doing really well in the polls – most polls had him leading in what will be a major runoff election.

And then yesterday, The Dirty published MORE PHOTOS which Anthony Weiner had sent to more women. What’s really crazy? Anthony Weiner was still sexting AFTER his 2012 media tour in which he said that was all over. He was still sending dong photos. And he was having phone sex with at least one woman. And he went by the handle CARLOS DANGER. CARLOS DANGER. I repeat, Carlos Danger. God, I think that’s my favorite part.

Anyway, Weiner came out for yet another terrible press conference with his beautiful wife standing beside him. What was different with this press conference was that after Weiner basically said “this is old news, this happened last year!” his wife spoke. Huma told reporters, “I love him. I have forgiven him. And as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward.”

Here’s the full video of Weiner & his wife Huma. Her part of the press conference begins around 3:45. She’s so beautiful! God. Seriously, she needs to dump this bridge troll and start over with a guy who will treat her better. SHE needs to run for mayor.

So, will Carlos Danger be able to stay in the race? Everybody, Democratic, Republican and Independent, is calling for him to step out of the race. I think there’s a good chance he will if the new polls reflect a growing dissatisfaction with Carlos Danger. We’ll see.

    This creature is a joke. The biggest question here is however: Why is this beautiful intelligent woman staying with this dick? And please don’t tell me it’s love.

    • BlackMamba says:

      I know, right? I was watching her speak and that got me thinking, why a lot of women(myself included) put up with all this crap(doesn’t have to be cheating) from men? It’s like that with so many girls I know.

    • Jo says:

      I always wondered about these politicians wives who stand by their cheating husbands. Then I met and grew very close with one such woman. She has passed now but let me say that she was a delightful combination of smart, driven, independent, charming and so very compassionate (I met her while my family was trying to to find our dad who had wondered out of his care home and disappeared. She took a personal interest, came to the funeral after we found his corpse and invited me to join her weekly “Support Circle”)
      . She really was like a big sister to me.

      Ok to her motivations for staying; she told us a number of things. One she was intimately tied to “our” career. A man doesnt win elections by himself, its not like when our husbands are promoted to manager. The wives have usually poured their lives into the dream, shmoozing, campaigning, advising, managing etc. Its not HIS career, Its OUR career.. Walking away is alot more complex when you are leaving your dream.

      Second, she said that the culture in those circles is different. Its generally assumed that each couple has its skeletons. The offence isnt the playing around (everybody probably is), its in getting caught and worse creating a spactacle. That goes for both husband and wife. The wife who leaves at the height of the drama is generally frowned upon. Because she has not only increased the spectacle, she has killed his career which is considered a disproportionate reaction. People in those power circles genuinely believe this. I remember there was a Governors ( the one who disappeared to Colombia to see his mistress) wif
      e who wrote a book and I gather she writes that her friends shunned her for “making it worse” and not playing along more convincingly.

      • Ann says:

        In other words: sexism and women clinging to values that favor men and are detrimental to their own well-being.

      • Jo says:

        Ann

        We talked about the sexist connotations. Her feeling was that the sexism was in the fact that a man is likely to succeed better in politics than a woman. In other words, she realised that politics and leadership was her calling but she also knew that he had far better prospects. Many of these wives are living vicariously through their husbands. Huma I think falls in this category as does nineties-Hillary.

        As the glass ceiling smashes and female candidates become more successful, we will see more women dumping these losers and pushing the dream themselves.

      • Esmom says:

        @Jo, so sorry about the loss of your father. Yours must have been a horrible experience.

        As for the political wife you mention, it’s as if you’re describing Hilary Clinton. Which makes it even more interesting to me that Huma is close with her, it’s as if she’s following her playbook.

      • Bridget says:

        She’s right (and thanks for putting it so well!). Politics and running for office isn’t just the candidate going off and doing the work and then coming home to their family, the (usually) wife and children are out hustling and working just as much. For a couple lile the Weiner-Abedins, their relationship represents years of work and planning, with the end goal of highrr office. If she were to walk out it would render those years of work and sacrifice meaningless. Of course I couldn’t make that choice myself, but I can at least understand. Huma is a player in the game, there’s no way she’s just giving up. Though she’s so well qualified herself, I wish things were flipped and she was the one running for office.

      • Teddy says:

        I agree. These situations are far more complex than just ..”she likes the lifestyle”. With the bimbo wives, yes that could be a reason. But with a woman like Huma who can easily keep herself in that lifestyle. A woman who has probably never spent longer than a business lunch at a Country Club. With Huma I believe she sees herself as an equal partner in this career. A political career really is just a family business. She may never sleep with him again but this is business. I still love Huma.

      • Elle Kaye says:

        Basically, she is selling her soul. She is giving up her dignity, her values, and her happiness for his. It isn’t an “ours”, situation, that only makes her feel better. Yes, he needs her, but if he leaves or she leaves, he has the experience, the glory, and she will get alimony.

        Political wives such as this convince themselves they are partners, but if their husbands are cheating and using them, they are nothing more than window dressing. And when the husband’s affairs come to light, those women look weak and foolish to the rest of America.

      • MavenTheFirst says:

        @Jo,

        Thanks so much for your informative comment! Now it all makes sense to me. The culture breeds this kind of behaviour and expectations. Reminds me of royalty and aristocratic/wealthy circles, where having a mistress is the norm. Look at Charles and Camilla. Makes me wonder what Wills is up to all those weeks away from Dolittle. She certainly seems to fit the above ‘wifely’ profile.

        Thanks for taking the time to write this! It’s been very enlightening.

      • Pandy says:

        Great post Jo and it makes sense … on paper. I have to agree with Elle Kay though … If he loses this election will she quietly dump him? He’s a liability at this point so where goes the “our” career?

    • V4Real says:

      It’s all about politics and perhaps she wants him in office just as much as he wants to be in office. Some women love being the wife of a politician. They love that status.

      • BlackMamba says:

        That has to be it. Women can love power too. She probably desperately want to be the mayor’s wife. Plus she’s had Hilary as a mentor and I’m sure she’s witness how intoxicating power can be.

      • Bridget says:

        It isn’t necessarily the status – Huma has status and connections of her own. They probably view themselves as a team. Being the spouse of someone on the political track that Weiner once was would have represented the opportunity to be a part of policy and do good work. It’s much more than ”ladies love being politician’s wives”, rather, the vastmajority of our elected officials are men.

      • V4Real says:

        @Bridget Look at it this way. How many people knew her name before the Weiner scandal? Yes I can agree that she is well known in the politcal circle but most Americans and others had never heard of her before this all went down. Because of Weiner’s notoriety she is now well known on a much larger scale therefore increasing her prominence. She’s adapted the Hilary Clinton method of stand by your man. She knows she definetely has something to gain if he is elected.

      • Elle Kaye says:

        I’m sorry, Bridget, but if she wanted to do good work, she could send a message to young women that, first, sexting is foolish, and it has consequences. If you send naked photos of yourself, it can cost your job, your reputation, and your marriage.

        Then she could send the message that women don’t need to stay in a relationship where they are being disrespected. Forgiveness is a wonderful thing, but it is earned. She forgave him once, now she needs to set the example and walk away.

        She could show what a strong woman looks like. That his behavior is unacceptable in life and in politics. Then she should run for Mayor.

        It is time to change to old guard.

      • Bubbles says:

        You know what, looking at this, I’m glad that I’m from a country where the politicians personal life doesn’t matter. He had a sex scandal? So what? That’s private. Is he a good politician? Leader? What are his programs for the city?
        I don’t know if my prime minister has children and I would probably not recognize his wife if I saw her ond the street. And thank God for that.

      • Bridget says:

        @V4Real and EleKay: you really don’t know politics, do you.

        And personally, I think she’s going to leave him, but quietly and on her own schedule.

      • DoloresChurch says:

        V4Real. Remember when Michelle Bachmann and gang accused Huma of ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Bachmann wanted a full investigation and refused to back down, even when McCain came out strong against her.
        I won’t miss Bachmann one bit.

    • BW says:

      Fool me once.
      Shame on you.

      Fool me twice.
      Shame on me.

    • Jenn says:

      God, could this man’s name be more ironic. What a pervert and his wife is not much better if she stays with this dick. Of course, people love being famous and if she can get famous through her sleezy husband, then so be it. He seriously needs therapy. Vote for him, I think not.

    • Ginger says:

      This scenario that you describe of political wives sounds a lot like military wives with high ranking husbands.

  2. GiGi says:

    I will literally never understand how a woman – smart, beautiful, bright – stays with a complete and total Dbag like Carlos Danger. What is it? Low self esteem? Is she just good with having him when she has him and having him be super shady when he feels like it?

    Carlos. Danger. I’m sorry – but this guy is about the furthest thing from those two words. Blech.

    • YuYa says:

      If I had to imagine a creepy unattractive penis pic sender –this guy would be it. He is so very very unattractive, and a liar and cheater to boot…having been cheated on myself by my husband, I couldn’t stay with one, I couldn’t look at him the same. It’s so pedestrian, and common. And unoriginal.

      Gross.

    • gg says:

      Yes to both of the above.

      I’m guessing she’s waiting for him to lose the election and maybe quietly cut out. But if I’m wrong and she is really this complacent and ambivalent, I gotta wonder about her. Because at the end of the day, all we have is our accountability and honor. If that’s not worth anything, good luck to em, hope they can sleep at night. I would not be able to.

      And if he wins the election? I am going to be first in line SMH wondering where people’s sense of integrity has gone off to. I don’t think it has to be a given that all politicians have to be scumbags.

  3. Cazzee says:

    She needs to let go and move on. Seriously.

    What a doormat.

  4. Joan says:

    “Seriously, she needs to dump this bridge troll and start over with a guy who will treat her better.” HUMA IS HILLARY’S LONGTIME LESBIAN LOVER. THIS RELATIONSHIP IS/WAS FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE.

  5. blue marie says:

    his weiner has a first name..

    Carlos Danger Weiner, ha ha ha that dude’s a freakin idiot.. secret danger weiner, which is appropriate since his hair looks like pubes..

  6. Jo says:

    Carlos Danger is a great sex site handle. But A Weiner is even better.

  7. embertine says:

    CARLOS DANGER. Being a cheater and a borderline predator would probably end up being forgiven, but that is going to get him laughed out of the polls.

    I’m sorry, I just have to say it again. CARLOS DANGER.

  8. brin says:

    LMAO….Carlos, you in Danger!

  9. Marjalane says:

    I can’t look at this cretin without thinking of Quagmire on Family Guy. And I think that Huma is a carbon copy of Hillary in that, it doesn’t matter what your husband does as long as you have power!

    • Noreen says:

      +1

      Huma has her agenda. And no, this is NOT Fox news.

      • teena says:

        She just had his baby and his mo is he doesn’t actually physically bang these women. She’s really conservative by personal nature due to cultural and religious upbringing too, so I don’t know if it’s completely fair to see her decisions coming from pure political ambition. It’s probably a mix.

    • kibbles says:

      I find this situation so much worse than when Bill cheated on Hillary. At least Bill hasn’t been stupid enough to cheat twice (or at least not stupid to cheat using social networks), especially after such a huge publicly humiliating scandal that almost destroyed his career. Weiner was still cheating on his wife after she gave birth and after he went on his apology tour and told media outlets that all of this was behind him. It is understandable for the public and his wife to forgive him once, but twice? He definitely has a sex addiction/psychological issues and he should focus on getting help to become a better man than running for office at this point. I’m sure Huma is furious and humiliated, but if she does plan to divorce him, it will only be if he is forced to step out of the race or loses the race. She is going to stick with him if he wins. She is using him in the hopes that they can still become a powerful political couple, but I think she has the intelligence and ability to run for office as a divorcee. The public would be 100% behind her if she chooses to divorce him.

      • Teddy says:

        “Atleast Bill hadnt been stupid enough to get caught twice”.

        Well, Kibbles have a seat and let mama teach you some truths. Clinton is known as comeback king for a reason. His cheating scandals were widely publicized back in his Governor days. Hell girl just hit google and educate youtself on his pre-Lewinski court cases

      • kibbles says:

        I know there were scandals when he was in the Governor’s office, but they weren’t scandalous enough to ruin his career. I was only referring to the Lewinsky affair and post-impeachment. I generally care much more about what a politician does in office for his constituents and Bill Clinton was a decent president, especially compared to Dubya and Obama. I think because the public associates the time of Clinton’s presidency with a good economy, they have a high opinion of the Clintons and are willing to forget his indiscretions. And as someone else commented, what Weiner did sending photos to women and a minor online appears so much creepier.

  10. Arock says:

    The fact that he did it again, consequences be damned, it what kills me. Has someone explained the way the interweaves work? What an idiot, he shouldn’t be allowed to drive a car much less runfor mayor.
    Huma should run. Fast and far.

    • DailyNightly says:

      He knows…and doesn’t care. The fact that people are supporting him running again makes this behavior acceptable in his head and he will continue to do it. And others like that asshat Spitzer figure “Hey, if Weiner can get away with it, so can I!” You know who are supporting these clowns running for office? Others that are doing the same behaviors!

  11. tracking says:

    In general, I try to separate politicians’ personal lives from their professional work. I’m not sure it’s fair to hold them to a higher standard than ‘civilians’ and think people should be given privacy to work out their marital issues. HOWEVER, I cannot abide involvement with a subordinate (abuse of power) or minor. I am still not over the fact that he sexted with a minor the last go-around. I would never vote for this guy. Whether or not Huma (really) forgives is up to her. Regardless of how I’d vote, he’s a laughingstock and it’s hard to see this going away.

    • NYC_girl says:

      I agree with you, and I think it goes beyond politicians unfortunately. Men (and women) of power love to screw around. I worked in a big law firm for several years and many of the partners were chasing tail. I had one pursue me after we worked together on a project and it was scary. He got my cell number and called me late one night asking me out to a party. What troubled me more was that I was tempted – all that money and power. I stayed away. I was way low on the totem pole too.

      I wouldn’t vote for this guy anyway; I don’t think he has done anything worthy. He does remind me of Quagmire – LOL!!! Lhota at least got the trains back in service after the storm last fall, I give him credit for that.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I agree with tracking. Although her staying with him is beyond my comprehension, it’s her life and I really don’t care. But I think his behavior towards a minor is intolerable and I can’t understand how anyone would vote for him. Not to mention my complete inability to take him seriously after knowing about all of this.
      It also bothered me that he just doesn’t seem to get it. He’s sorry for any “inconvenience” this may have caused. Inconvenience? Really?

  12. Bree says:

    He has humiliated her at least twice and she’s still sticking by him? Better her than me.

  13. Lassie says:

    It’s like Max Power.

    What kind of magical penis does this guy possess that makes women willingly be and stay with this guy? Whatever it is, I’m sure he’d be glad to send me a picture of it…

    Huma, it’s going to be difficult. But you need to get out of your marriage. For your own piece of mind.

  14. Sarah says:

    CARLOS DANGER — is that like Dirk Diggler or Rod Johnson?

  15. Lukie says:

    Eh.
    How do we know that they aren’t extra special kinky?
    It’s possible…

  16. e.non says:

    that he could continue texting his dick pictures AFTER he was forced to resign from congress — and then decide to run for mayor of new york city — is a testament to this man’s staggering arrogance. but it’s the staggering lack of self-control that is disgusting. and that he’d continue doing this as mayor is a given — as if this city doesn’t already have enough issues to deal with. msnbc has devoted hours to this so far this morning, and it’s not even 9a.

    he’s a pig; and i cannot for the life of me figure out why she remains.

  17. Mayday says:

    the fact that these politicians carry on the way they do and actually think that it won’t all come spilling out at some point is proof that they are incredibly naive, untruthful and just plain stupid – 3 qualities I don’t want in a politician.

  18. Neelyo says:

    The worst part about all of this is he’s essentially handed the election to that scumbag Quinn who will follow in the footsteps of her mentor Bloomberg and continue to sell off the city to the highest bidder. Vote De Blasio!!!

    • Hm says:

      I am voting for Bill, too.

      For those who aren’t looking at Weiner and the other candidates come primary time, there was a NYT article this past June that reviewed his actual accomplishments as a Congressman. To write that they were thin would be a gross understatement. Excepting a single piece of legislation that he pushed forward at the behest of a large donor, he shepherded no bills, did nothing of any significance (which is why his first responders speechifying is remembered), did not support the administration without tit-for-tat expectations, and was reportedly an abusive little shit to work with or for, with a ton of staff turnover.

      He is SPECTACULARLY underqualified to run this city. His candidacy is a joke. The whole reason he’s running is to continue to cozy up to moneyed interests, and he’s doing it now because he’ll lose his war chest because of financing regs in 2013. If he runs now and loses (assuming he continues the tacky and pointless path that he and Huma have decided to stake out), he can run for anything else in the future and claim, ‘Oh, sexting/’Carlos’ is so 2013. I’m into the issues, leave the past in the past,’ etc. The thing is? He really doesn’t STAND for a damned thing. He’s not got a principle to spare.

      Knowing about his real lack of a record and abusive personality makes me think very, very little of the both of them. He’s not running for something high-minded on their joint behalf. Not at all.

  19. fabgrrl says:

    Freakin’ idiot! I love this guy’s politics, but WTF? It’s not so much the sexting itself – yes that was stupid and gross but probably would have been forgotten about, but his lying and weaseling was so outrageous. I’ll bet dollars to doughnuts that if he had just fessed up when the sexting story first broke he could have retained his seat and gotten his career back on track. But no, he couldn’t do that. and now when he reemerges from hiding, we find out there was more that he didn’t come clean about. Dude, just go get some hookers or bang your secretary like a decent politicians and stop being so stupid!

  20. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    At least he’s living up to his name.

  21. strawberryfields says:

    Honestly, the worst threat to a democracy is when the ruling elite think they are above the law–both legally and morally. It drives me crazy when people are so quick to forgive when politicians (or even sports stars and celebs) lie. They’re lying not because “everyone makes mistakes,” but because they think they won’t have to pay the consequences. And–looking at how Spitzer, Weiner, Bill Clinton, The Biebs, Lance Armstrong, and even Chris Brown–have fared post law breaking and/or lies–they were right.

  22. Ann says:

    Men aren’t cut out for political office. They’re too unstable and emotional.

  23. lisa says:

    i dont know why NYC voters or his wife would want to tie themselves down with this world class narcissist who is too arrogant to understand how twitter works or care about it.

    as for the wife, besides being a tool, he isnt exactly the husband on the good wife, he looks like a chicken.

    • greyson says:

      I am a lifelong New Yorker and I *refuse* to vote for this scum!!

      I detest Christine Quinn as well. I will never vote for her. So if Bill de Blasio doesn’t get the democratic nomination I WILL VOTE REPUBLICAN.

      Note — I think de Blasio had a real shot at beating Quinn before slimey Weiner threw his hat into the ring.

  24. Jen34 says:

    I have no respect for either one of them.

  25. JL says:

    Huma is gorgeous, if she’s taking Hillary s advise of “stand by your man” she’s doing herself and her baby a disservice.

    If she’s doing it hoping for some political gain, well then she deserves all she gets.

  26. Jayna says:

    He has real issues if he couldn’t stop himself after losing everything and even possibly going to lose his wife and soon-to-be-born child. Very sad and pathetic. He’s a smart and brilliant man who could help his community or state, but he destroys himself, no one else. It’s so pervy that this is how he gets off. I find a married man screwing a random chick he met or worked with easier to stomach than a guy trolling the internet as Carlos Danger and posting lewd posts and pics to women and can’t stop the behavior. Yuck.

  27. PHD gossip says:

    She learned from Hillary how to ignore humiliation to gain power. She is after power. If he has no viable political future, she dumps him NOT BEFORE!
    I, for one, am unimpressed.

  28. RobN says:

    The weird thing is, I can understand that he’s got a sexual perversion that’s just plain creepy, but I cannot for the life of me understand what she is doing. Anybody who stands with somebody at one of these press conferences and just humiliates themselves purely for political gain is beyond contempt. He’s got a compulsion he can’t seem to control while she’s making a cold blooded political calculation and I find that really scary.

    • mercy says:

      Maybe she thought she was doing what was best for her family by standing by him and later trying to help him recover his career, only to be blindsided by another round of allegations.

      Maybe once he drops out and fades from the spotlight again, she will quietly file for divorce and set about achieving her own political ambitions down the road.

  29. Stephanie says:

    He clearly has a sex addiction IMO.

  30. Marisa says:

    He just reminds me of Family Guy’s pervy Quagmire at this point, and that’s an insult to Quagmire. Hey Mrs Weiner, dump him already

  31. JL says:

    Perhaps Muslim women just don’t divorce their men, even if the husband is Jewish?

    I really don’t know.

    But then I’m freaking catholic and I know you can divorce and annul so I’m sure a Muslim can.

    A Legal / Islamic / Judaic divorce what a mess.

    Nah she’s just ambitious and thinks maybe they can ride his political career to the top (of whatever). stupid.

  32. Alexis says:

    What gets me is their dishonesty. If they’re both actually cool with this they should just say so. If both married people consent it’s none of my business. But if it is repeatedly lying to the public it becomes a character issue.

    • Mrs. Peacock says:

      They should- but they are too busy defending themselves from the attacks of the morality police. His shenanigans are private (as in not a public issue) and between himself, his wife, and his twitter ladies. What goes on behind closed doors is NOT up for public scrutiny if it occurs between consensual adults. He shouldn’t have lied about his shenanigans ending- that to me is his only downfall as a public servant.

      • mercy says:

        The lying is far worse than the sexting, twexintg, etc. between consenting adults, at least as far as the general public should be concerned. But risking the public humiliation of his wife and, especially, their child :again: also shows a real lack of character.

      • Mrs. Peacock says:

        See, I think a lot of people are assuming these parties are humiliated. Sure, a child should be protected. But his wife…I mean I am not buying that she is shocked, humiliated, hurt, etc. I think they are playing this the best they can- what is easier for the public to understand?? Oh, I am sorry I made a cliche mistake and my wife is so forviging even though she doesn’t like it… OR… actually we both dabble and in fact we like to pee on each other so this isn’t a big deal. I know, I’m exaggerating, but I think it is totally feasible that they are playing the sorry/forgiveness game because it has been PROVEN that the public quickly forgives and forgets. Less people are as quick to understand a nontraditional sexual adult relationship.

      • Hm says:

        Mrs. Peacock, the cover article for the NY Times magazine that Huma and Anthony jointly posed for and participated in does *not* indicate in any way, shape or form that theirs is a ‘nontraditional’ or open union – maybe more to the point, it doesn’t indicate that Huma does *not* feel ill-used and humiliated by Anthony’s actions.

        I agree in the abstract but not in this instance.

  33. Deidre says:

    Hollywood media expert Michael Levine said Abedin’s confessional doesn’t help her husband’s image, but adds to her likability.

    “I think she’s simultaneously sympathetic and sad,” he said.

    But political media strategist Adam Weiss compared Huma to her boss, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who came out on top after her husband’s sex scandal.

    “They are that power-hungry that she stands there and she accepts the absolute disgracefulness of serial cheating from her husband,” he said. “Huma comes from the Clinton school of forgiveness — power is more important than dignity.”

    I feel sorry for his wife and their son. He should fade from the spotlight before the child is old enough to read.

    I can’t believe there’s not another Democrat in all of NYC who wouldn’t be better suited for the office. How did he get to be the frontrunner?

    • Kate says:

      He (was) the frontrunner because he has name recognition and the backing of the Clintons. No one legitimate wants to follow Bloomberg, that’s why NYC is stuck with pitiful candidates who absolutely cannot run the city (Weiner included). Weiner didn’t have any meaningful legislation as a congressman and was simply good at getting himself on tv. Mercifully, his 15 minutes are almost over.

  35. Garvels says:

    Perhaps Weiner will be selected to give the Keynote at the DNC convention in 2016 like Bill Clinton did in 2012. He is certainly qualified..ha ha…

  36. logan says:

    This is just one sad pathetic creature. He takes the United States political system and turns it into a joke. But then again the Congress, Senate and White House are full of clowns. If his wife truthfully forgives him, I hope she is ready to spend the rest of her life forgiving him. What a total joke.

  37. Merritt says:

    I feel bad for Huma and their son. He keeps humiliating his family, and wanting another chance. At some point she is going to have to decide if it is truly worth it.

    Also having Bill Clinton officiate at their wedding, was clearly a bad omen.

  38. teena says:

    god, his sexting skills suck, it’s like reading bad fanfiction. And he’s so needy to while IN the middle of sexting–do you like my dick? Is it attractive to you? CAn you compliment it a little more? Please tell me I’m attractive….

    God, poor Huma has her hands full with some ugly dude who finally got some female attention and then just lost his shit.

  39. Kate says:

    I see this will inspire the next season of “Scandal” with the First Lady Mellie standing dutifully next to her dick husband Fitz while he begs for forgivness. LMAO.

  40. nicegirl says:

    I keep wondering what kind of reaction this type of behavior would incite were Carlos Danger A WOMAN?

    I find it hard to believe we would find a gal who participated in this kind of crud a good mayoral candidate . . .

  41. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    He looks just like Horshack from Welcome back Kotter.

  42. Tina says:

    Wait I’m confused, so he sent this text after his scandal and he told his wife before running for mayor and still ran for mayor. In the press conference she wasn’t mad and he was acting cocky.

  43. tifzlan says:

    A small part of me kind of wants him to be elected mayor just so everyone in Congress can call him Carlos Danger whenever they meet to discuss whatever it is politicians discuss.

  44. Veeeery Veerytas says:

    He’s a douche. He’s always been one. The only bigger douches are the people who support him for personal reasons.

  45. Raquel says:

    Huma’s a doormat and needs to grow a pair, sure, but so is NY. With Wiener and Spitzer both, I thought the response to their campaigns were pathetic. Along the lines of ‘it’s been a good amount of time, can we forgive them?’ Uh–not unless there seriously aren’t any promising candidates at all who have not done what they’ve done.

  46. Shannon says:

    I read the whole sexting exchange on The Dirty the other day and it was disgusting. I felt like I needed a scalding hot shower to scrub away the filth I had read.

    He’s a nasty pig and his wife is a fool if she continues to stand by him.

  47. bluhare says:

    I’m a minority of one here, I know, but this is something that should have stayed between them, not splashed over every paper/website in the country. It’s a testament to the times that it isn’t.

    If extra marital consorting was an automatic ticket out of politics, there would be no one left. And I truly fail to see how it would impact his ability to govern.

    Lastly, I would also argue that Huma Abedin is showing strength by staying. Why? Because if she chooses to leave him, it should be on her terms, not because she’s forced into it by moralistic bystanders.

    OK, got my fire retardant suit on, so have at it.

    • Bijlee says:

      I mean I get what you’re saying. Everything here was consensual; however, lena dunham was spot on in her analysis (ugh barf I can’t believe I agree with her dammit!). She said it best though,

      “In Weiner’s latest text exchange the girl in question says ‘I can’t believe someone like you would pay attention to someone like me…It’s literally a dream come true.’ This cuts to the heart of the abuse of power that is the substance of so many sex scandals.

      The problem isn’t adultery, or perversity,” Dunham wrote. “It’s wielding your position of authority to subjugate the women who dream of a piece of the pie.”

      …I mean she still loves Bill Clinton unabashedly but at least the dude was a good politician, but whatever. I agree with her.

      • Veruca says:

        So, you’re saying you don’t care if your leaders demonstrate integrity?

        He’s a lying scumbag. Period. We don’t need to knowingly keep them in office.

      • Bijlee says:

        @Veruca ….where did I say that? Honestly, here’s how I see it. You’re a politician. Keep it in your pants. I got it politicians are real people too, screw that. You signed up for the job, now live up to people’s high expectations. Yup. I’m harsh and completely unable to understand why these buttheads just can’t do their job instead of having big giant, pot smoking, coke sniffing, orgies with one another and a bunch of hookers.

        Like HOW does your mind keep that much in check? Doesn’t the stress of balancing all these things affect your ability as a public official? Aren’t you busy dealing with bills that will affect the lives of your constituents? Aren’t these bills heavily, and CAREFULLY worded to benefit everyone BUT your constituents? Shouldn’t you be reading those carefully and working non stop for us? How the hell do you have time to even think about Carla Cooch? Let alone sext an underage girl?

        But it’s never gonna change so might as well accept that they do things on the side. As long as it doesn’t impede their ability as a public official I don’t care. But THIS most definitely did. So Weiner deserves the crock of shit that gets thrown at him.

      • Veruca says:

        @Bijlee -

        Sorry. I obviously offended you, but I was responding to the statement above yours.

        I forget those damn “@” signs all the time…

    • RobN says:

      I don’t think the issue here is extra marital sex, at all. I think it has a lot more to do with the fact that people are astounded at how anybody could have such poor judgment and how they can stand up and say they’ve gotten counseling and put their family back together, while knowing that they are still doing the exact same thing. The Richard pictures are just a sideshow; this could be about drugs or theft or anything. What fascinates people is the ability somebody has to stand there and look others in the eye and straight out lie.

      The lying, poor judgment and total lack of impulse control are relevant to whether this guy, or anybody, should be in a position of power over others.

    • teena says:

      the reason it can’t stay between the personal players involved is cause this guy keeps using social media to hit up random fangirls to show his dick off too, and they end up spilling the beans about him.

      What’s more, he tried to shut up the girl by giving her some sort of access to political opportunities.

      The problem here is he engages in reckless behavior with strangers over social media of all places, then hopes to cover his tracks by giving out favors. THat’s the last thing I want to see from a politician. Him and Huma can parcel out the personal fallout,but the public has every right to judge how his personal behavior can compromise his professional behavior.

    • Mia says:

      The problem is that he has no integrity, he’s a liar, and he’s a remorseless, inveterate pervert. He has no sense of shame or embarrassment when caught doing something wrong. This is somebody we’re supposed to trust with our money? I don’t think so. As a mayor he would be easy to blackmail, and who know what other ways he would be capable of abusing his position and his constituents’ trust. What’s more we already know that if he did something wrong or unethical as a mayor, he damn sure wouldn’t feel bad about it. What if he turned into a Berlusconi putting unqualified young women he likes to sext in government positions, or getting them off if they engage in illegal activities? And correct me if I’m wrong, didn’t he try to bribe this girl with a job or something? Don’t you think if he were Mayor he could be susceptible to bribing someone with government money or a government job?

  48. Reece says:

    Getting caught once is stupid. Getting caught twice for the same exact thing after being caught before is a serious problem that requires a psychiatrist.

  49. OK says:

    You would think that this moron would stop after the first time. It shows that he lacks self control and therefore not fit for office.

  50. Jennifer12 says:

    I will seriously have to move if this tool gets into office.

  51. ParisPucker says:

    weiner needs to tuck in that weiner and stop enDangering his career and humiliating his wife with his antics! Am amazed that he had the balls (sorry, bad pun..) to do this AGAIN after the first epic scandal..

  52. LaurieH says:

    Ugh. Justt ugh. Many people, as they get older (such as myself) come to realize that nothing – absolutely nothing – is more important than one’s own dignity and conscience. Many people, apparently including Huma, are willing to trade in their dignity and conscience for other things: money, power, acceptance – even peace. Anthony Weiner betrayed the sanctity of their marriage. He lied to her, publicly disrespected her and betrayed her trust – as well as the public’s, whose trust he is delusionally asking for in running for mayor. Both Huma and, it seems, the public are willing to trust in a man for whom trust has no meaning. So it would seem that it’s not just Huma who is willing to sell out her dignity and conscience for….I don’t even know what. Cheap political lip service?

  53. Kelly says:

    They’re both creepy to me. And no, I do not think she is beautiful at all. Has a lot to do with her idiocy in staying with him.

  54. CassT says:

    I know I will get one thousand flames for saying this, but I’ll say it anyway. People who run for public office are not perfect. They (gasp!) have a sex drive just like everyone else.

    Since all this about Weiner has been public knowledge for a long time, and his wife knows about it, then its possible she A) simply doesn’t care or B) they have an open marriage and she has dalliances with other men.

    Also, Weiner has done nothing against the law, so although sleazy, his behavior is still legal. People who waste time criticizing him are no better than he is.

  55. Ron says:

    OMG a Weiner at the Gay Pride Parade!

    Seriously New York, No. Just no.

  56. phlyfiremama says:

    What a dirtbag. She is SPINELESS for staying with him and playing the good retiring “we all make mistakes” forgiving political wife. I have ZERO sympathy for her~this is a CHOICE that she made in sticking with a liar and a cheater. THIS is the man who would represent New York city to the rest of the nation and the world? Please.

  57. Tiffany says:

    Carlos Danger. Hahaha. I can’t even give him points for creativity. They say your porn name is the street you grew up on and your childhood pet, right. So mine would be Caroline Spaz. I would so kick a** with that name :) .

  58. Holden says:

    Ugh, this f’ing guy again? Can we send him to political Siberia again?

  59. Andrea says:

    The name is stupid (Carlos Danger LOL), but since when did everyone become holier than thou? I know PLENTY of wives and husbands who cheat on one another. In fact, I know one wife who everyone who knows her thinks she is in the “perfect marriage” but she cheats on her husband because she wants it rougher sexually and doesn’t want to hurt her husbands feelings to ask for it. In addition, since when is forgiveness out the window? My bf and I have been together 6 1/2 years and we both have cheated (he had a one night stand, I with one of our mutual friends had an emotional affair), we both discussed it like mature adults and moved past it. Maybe his wife was cold, busy, uninterested in sex whilst pregnant and this guy just wanted some attention. There are seriously far worse things to worry about. Yes, if he is a repeat cheating offender dump him, but sexting and the like I am willing to forgive if we discuss why he is doing it etc. People need to realize this behavior comes from somewhere (unless they are truly a sex addict or sociopath, in which case all women need to run far, far away from those men). Am I just too open-minded and forgiving?

  60. Mia says:

    The fact that he is sexting again isn’t the shocking part, the shocking part is that he chose to run for mayor and be in the public eye again knowing that he has a sexting problem. Even worse, that he has the balls to continue with this campaign when the average person would at least have the sense to embarrassed and understand that the jig is up. He’s a sociopath. For real.

  61. TG says:

    My mom always said to us while growing up that if you lie to someone it means you think they are stupid. So in this case Carlos Danger thinks we are stupid and his wife with her lies thinks we are stupid. She has taken a page out of Hilary Clinton’s Forgiveness Playbook. Both ladies were and are willing to sell their own integrity for power and position. There is nothing genuine about any of these players here.

  62. Mew says:

    Even though he’s insatiable with sex, he’d could theoretically be ok in politics? I find it all just disgusting. Well, I generally find the insane over-powered uncontrolled lust for sex and all things related to it just disgusting and bad show. Oh well..

  63. Betsy says:

    If she’s trying to be Hillary, well, she’s not married to Clinton. Bill Clinton was a Rhoades Scholar. Weiner is a cretin. She’s an a$$. What a stoopid speech. Go crawl back under a rock and stop inflicting us with yor presence.

  64. angee says:

    All the obvious aside, that’s a GREAT photo. Worth THOUSANDS of words. I bet Time Magazine or LIFE will publish it.
