Anthony Weiner admitted to his online mistress Sydney Elaine Leathers that Bill and Hillary Clinton may be ‘embarrassed’ by their ‘secret affair,’ the Daily Mail reports. Funny he should say that since the Clintons are said to be “angry with efforts” by Weiner to “compare his Internet sexcapades and his wife Huma Abedin’s incredible forgiveness — to the Clintons’ notorious White House saga,” the New York Post reports.
Maureen Dowd: “Now, defining deviancy downward, Señor and Señora Danger are using the Clinton playbook. The difference is, there’s nothing in Weiner’s public life that is redeeming. In 12 years in Congress, he managed to get only one minor bill passed, on behalf of a donor, and he doesn’t work well with people. He knows how to be loud on cable and wave his Zorro sword in our faces.” “Some sex scandals, like Mark Sanford’s, fall into the realm of flawed human nature, and some, like Weiner’s, fall into the realm of ‘Seriously, what is wrong with you?’”
