Representative Anthony Weiner has taken a two-week break from Congress so he can enter a treatment program. For what?
We can guess he has some form of sexual addiction based on the nude photos that surfaced over the weekend of the Weiner posing in front of a mirror and taking his own photo to send to women over the internet. Has he broken any laws? Were all the women who received his naked photos of age? Or are there still some out there who might come forward who are under age?
I guess that is the question. Do we want Representatives in office who lie to the public and then we find out they have done worse than they admitted. He has been in Congress for 7 terms, I think that is long enough to know the rules. The man definitely has a problem if he can’t stop sending photos of himself to women who are not his wife.
Now the President has stepped in and said if it were him, he would resign. “Remember those words”. Anthony Weiner needs to talk to his wife before he steps down and she will be back today from her trip with Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Maybe she can meet him at the “treatment center” and discuss his options. She needs to take care of herself due to her early pregnancy and she doesn’t need this stress in her life now. But Anthony Weiner didn’t think about his wife, he was too much into himself and his addiction so he kept sending those photos.
Personally, I don’t want a representative who can’t keep his clothes on and who wants to take photos of himself. I want someone who has some moral values and doesn’t misrepresent himself to the public. Yes Anthony Weiner should resign because the scandal is the most important part of this story. Weiner has lost his effectiveness, because the scandal is taking front and center.
Concentrate on your addiction and your wife. It will take a while to get over this proclivity of yours and you need all the time and focus on your life not on the scandal.
