Anthony Weiner’s Problem

Apparently, being busted for an online affair and forced to resign from Congress taught Anthony Weiner that he'd need to be more careful, and use an alter ego the next time he sent pictures of his equipment to women.

So he used the name "Carlos Danger."

It was bound to happen sooner or later: An anonymous woman has claimed to the Arizona-based gossip and nudies site The Dirty that she carried on an explicit online affair with mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner — after he was busted and forced to resign from Congress for the exact same thing. "She was lured by Anthony Weiner post scandal via Facebook," wrote the site's editor Nik Ritchie yesterday. "They had a relationship for 6 months and she believed they were in love … The relationship consisted of Anthony Weiner and Anonymous sending sexually explicit pictures of each other and having sexual conversations via phone. The best part was Anthony used an alias this time thinking this would protect him. Anthony Weiner used the name 'Carlos Danger' when he would email pictures of his penis via Yahoo."

Weiner has owned up to it and apologized.

I don't really care about the sexual lives of our politicians unless they are in a position to be blackmailed or whatever.  And that held true for the first round of Weiner scandals.  But at some point, it becomes an issue of ones' common sense, and Weiner seems to lack it.  It's not so much the pictures themselves, but the stupidity of a candidate who can't lay off something which acts as a constant distraction.

Plus that fact that, according to some reports, he wasn't asked to send out these explicit pictures of himself — he just did it.  That's kinda creepy.

Maybe Weiner needs to re-evaluate his life goals again.
