Move over, former-mayor Filner, and make room for A. Weiner!
Not to be outdone by the sexual shenanigans of its outgoing mayor, Bob Filner, who resigned as San Diego mayor last week, West Coasters will witness whether the East Coast New Yorkers select Anthony Weiner for their mayor.
Weiner runs in the upcoming primary for New York’s Democrat candidate for mayor. Like San Diego’s former city leader, New York’s future mayor might turn out to be the same butt-grabbing kind of fellow.
Despite his recent fall from favor among New Yorkers, the scandalous sex-texting Weiner took to a confrontation with a Jewish voter. With mouthfuls of food spattering out as he spoke, Weiner lashed out at a customer who questioned his morals as a public figure while chewing on what might have been a weiner in a New York deli.
The exchange was caught on a video that showed Weiner throwing heated remarks of self defense at the man who calmly pointed to the deviant behavior for which Weiner is famous.
With shaking fingers pointing between the two men, they parted without a physical confrontation, although it came close. Weiner eventually took leave of the public debacle declaring “I don’t back down,” leaving New York voters to wonder whether he spoke of the mayoral race or his talk with the man in the yarmulke.
Sentiment in San Diego says that the man with the yarmulke should run for New York mayor.
