New York City mayoral candidate and former Congressman Anthony Weiner, just can’t seem to control himself. Despite claiming that his past sexting activities “were wrong and hurtful to my wife”, new allegations hint that Weiner didn’t quite take his downfall seriously after he was first exposed, allegedly engaging in sexual online chats with a 22-year-old up until August of 2012.
Weiner apparently chose his own porn name – Carlos Danger.
Via Business Insider:
New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner confirmed the authenticity of new lewd, sexually charged online chats and photos that were posted by a nightlife website over the past day.
Nightlife site “The Dirty” posted images and conversations that allegedly came from Weiner to a 22-year-old woman under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger.”
“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” Weiner said in a statement released by his campaign Tuesday afternoon.
“As I have said in the past, these things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress…”
The website that revealed these new allegations, The Dirty, has much more, including photos.
More from Buzzfeed:
Anthony Weiner’s campaign did not respond Tuesday to repeated inquiries about a new set of unverified images suggesting that he exchanged sexually charged messages — and an explicit image — with a woman last summer.
The screenshots of conversations — on the nightlife site The Dirty — could not be independently confirmed. They consist of screenshots of exchanges on Facebook and the lesser-known social network Formspring between a woman (whose avatar is blurred) and a man alleged to be (and who she appears to believe) is Weiner, but who also uses the handle “Carlos Danger.”
The site’s anonymous tipster claims that Weiner continued the correspondence with her at least until August 2012, when Weiner allegedly suggested finding her a Chicago condo where they could meet. The screenshots of the exchanges are undated, however, and whether they could be shown to have taken place before or after Weiner’s 2011 fall — before which he has said he had other, yet undisclosed, online relationships — is a key question.
“Can you hard delete all our chats here,” the person identified as Weiner writes in one chat, in which he also allegedly offered his correspondent help in getting on a Politico blogger panel. “I’m deeply flawed,” he allegedly says in another.
The accuser claims these chats extended to August, 2012. That means they engaged in this behavior well after Weiner’s resignation, and around the same time Weiner was considering his campaign for Mayor.
Thus far, Weiner’s (or Danger’s) camp has been unwilling to deny the timeline aspect of the story.
First, if Weiner could not give up this behavior after having his career destroyed and his marriage severely strained, then he certainly isn’t going to give it up any time soon. The likelihood that he is still doing these things to this day, is high. He should abandon his mayoral bid and seek professional help for narcissistic personality disorder. Perhaps a visit to this psychiatrist in Miami would be in order.
Second, does the city of New York really need a mayor that would consistently and perpetually place himself in a position in which he could be successfully blackmailed?
