At this point, it seems pretty clear that the same traits that drove Anthony Weiner back into politics prematurely are exactly what made him promiscuous with young women online: He’s short on impulse control and long on self-regard. Perhaps the most revealing tidbit in his latest back-and-forth was when he asked his new 22-year-old admirer if she’d ever checked out the pictures of his erect penis now freely circulating in cyberspace, thanks to his previous indiscretions: Sadly, my pics are out there to look at. Have you ever?
(Indeed she had, she said, and declared herself “quite impressed.”)
He’s not mortified by those pictures, in other words. He’s proud of them.

He then provided a rough total of how many women he's engaged with sexually online. "It's not dozens and dozens," he said. "It's six to ten, I suppose, but I can't tell you absolutely what people are going to consider inappropriate or not."
She sucked. She like wasn’t good at setting up events. She was clearly there because she wanted to be seen. Like it was, like, terrible and I had to like - she would like, she would just not show up for work.
I'm not saying New Yorkers have to elect Weiner. But we do have to get the fuck over him, we have to get the fuck over it, just like we had to get over pot. Once upon a time admitting to having used pot—or getting caught using pot—could end or derail a political career. At some point we realized that, fucking hell, if we disqualify everyone who has ever smoked pot from public life we were going to be left with social misfits and shit-talking liars. So we got over it.
