Back in my day, a man who accidentally tweeted out a pic of his dong to a woman who wasn’t his wife was political suicide. But here we are, less than two years after Anthony Weiner resigned from his seat in Congress in disgrace, and here he is announcing that he’s running for mayor of New York. (This on the heels of former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford running for Congress just a few short years after literally disappearing in office and taking taxpayer funded trips to Argentina to visit his mistress.)
So yeah, Anthony Weiner is running to be mayor of New York City AND His hot wife Huma even makes an appearance in the video. And you know what…his message does resonate! NYC’s middle class is disappearing and it’s becoming a city for rich people exclusively. But, yeah, PENIS PENIS PENIS PENIS PENIS!!!
“Look, I made some big mistakes. And I know I let a lot of people down,” Weiner says in the video. “But I’ve also learned some tough lessons. I’m running for mayor ‘cuz I’ve been fighting for the middle class and those struggling to make it my entire life. And I hope I get a second chance to work for you.”
I’m both dreading and looking forward to the penis pun-y headlines in the New York Post for months to come.
