    Reader Poll: Will Anthony Weiner Resign Prior To The Next Election?

    Reader Poll: Will Anthony Weiner Resign Prior To The Next Election?

    I think this did it.  If he were a ship, he’d be taking on water faster than the pumps can work.
    He refuses to deny it is a photo of him:

    Rep. Anthony Weiner says he “can’t say with certitude” that the lewd photo of a man’s crotch sent using his Twitter account to one of his followers isn’t of him.

    “I didn’t send that picture out,” Weiner said in an interview with NBC News.
    “That’s not a picture of you?” reporter Luke Russert asked.

    Weiner responded: “You know, I can’t say with certitude.”

    We don’t expect much of our politicians, but we do expect them to know if they’ve taken pictures of their own crotches and uploaded them to yfrog.

    You see, he’s sunk if he took and uploaded the photo, regardless of whether he sent it.  The “my account was hacked” or “it was a prank” only addresses who sent the photo.

    But then again, he is arrogant and combative, and a Democrat, so I’m not sure the normal rules applicable to completely embarrassed and humiliated politicians apply.  If he leaves, it will only be when he gets a visit from someone from Chicago.

    Will Weiner resign prior to the next election? (Poll open until Thursday at 9 a.m. Eastern)

    Update, the video (via Matt Lewis):

    No chance he will resign his seat unless he is hiding something a lot bigger than we can see so far.

    However, Weiner was a leading contender for the Dem nomination for NYC Mayor succeeding Bloomberg, but far from the only contender. Weiner may already have scotched his mayoral hopes.

    Further, New York loses two congressional districts for the 2012 election and it is a virtual certainty that, given split control of the legislature, one upstate Repubican districf and one NYC area Democratic districf will be eliminated (or two incumbents thrown together). To date, the most likely Democratic losers are Long Island Reps. Gary Ackerman and Carolyn McCarthy. Weiner has had enough clout to avoid even being thought about. To the extent thaf scandal causes him to lose some of that clout, his colleagues gain strength to point to his district.

    No, he won't resign; why should he? Who's going to make him? Do you think his constituents care? For that matter, I don't think this will handicap his mayoral run, even a bit.

    His behavior has finally crossed a line. I refer to the tweets from Washington Times report Emily Miller in which she tweets, "I need a shower." The behavior she describes of Weiner shows someone arrrogant beyond the norm for a politician. As I ststed in my own blog, "KEEP YOUR DAMNED PANTS ZIPPED UP!!"

    I hate to say this but there are only two stories anyone who follows the news wants to hear right now:
    1) How bad the economy is.
    2) Weinergate.

    Weinergate is um, growing bigger. Even Chris Matthews took two Liberal tools on his show to task for trying to change the subject and defend the Weiner. CNN has the Story. MSNBC is on it. WaPo is on it. LAT is on it. DRUDGE IS NOW ON IT. If this thing doesn't somehow burn out in the next 24 hours and the Left can't get it under control where they can redirect our attention to their attacks on Sarah Palin while she tours the country, Weiner may see the underside of the bus.

    As always when caught in a festering mess of skunk cabbage, the Democrats will just wheel out a John Deere liquid fertilizer sprayer and fill it with Magic D political deodorant. For this one probably clinical strength and apply it liberally to the offending politician.

    Sadly there is no Republican equivalent to Magic D. Our politicians tend to man up admit their peccadilloes and leave public life.
