Will communicating with a 17-year-old sink a political career

Anthony Weiner’s bid to remain a US congressman may now depend on how the public and his peers deal with the ongoing flow of information about his online contacts.

The latest news is that Mr. Weiner, under scrutiny after admitting sexually charged communications with several women, has also exchanged messages via Twitter with a 17-year-old high school girl in Delaware.

But through a spokeswoman, the New York Democrat said the contacts with the young woman were “neither explicit nor indecent.” And apparently the girl has a similar view.

This is a really absurd smear job. What kind of€  a sick society prohibits adults, especially those in public office, from communicating with young people? If there was nothing inappropriate in the communication, then why the hell is this news?

I agree with the shirtless ax wielding teacher on this one. €  It is highly inappropriate for the media to stalk this girl.€  What they are doing is far worse than anything he did. This behavior should end all of their careers! Leave her the hell alone.

Philadelphia news vans and a New York Post photographer were among the news media stationed outside the teen's house trying to get an interview. No one answered the door Friday night. Someone inside the house could be seen looking out the windows, and the lights went out shortly after 11 p.m. … Police then responded to the scene after a shirtless man wielding an ax began pacing up and down the street outside the girl's home. The man, who claimed to be a teacher, was led away in handcuffs.


He’s a public speaker and he inspired someone. Good for him!€  What’s next, “Politician seen on same planet 17-year old girl…. Will it sink his career?” Sink this, buddy.

    I hope he wasn’t that much of an idiot–to do the online thing with an underage girl. The dogs do smell blood and the Republicans will do anything to keep the conversation on the irrelevant and away from what really matters–the economy and jobs where they have nothing constructive to say.

      Yes, seems like a big distraction from our real problems. What a waste of time. He had an affair or something, and now he has been called on to step down, but how does this relate to his job? Yes, bad behavior, but not illegal AFAIK, and also none of anyone’s business.

      ” Ms. Wasserman Schultz called Mr. Weiner‚Äôs online exchanges a ‚Äúsordid affair‚Äù that had become an ‚Äúunacceptable distraction‚Äù for the congressman, his constituents and the House, according to The Associated Press. ”

      Who is making this an “unacceptable distraction”? Not him. Whoever is making this a distraction should resign.
