Anthony Weiner has to go

My latest post for WNYC concludes:

We live in a divided country, it’s true that’s not Anthony Weiner’s fault, but Weiner let 10 days go by where his surrogates attacked anyone trying to establish the truth. This is not behavior befitting a Congressman. He should go because he sent lewd photos to young women. He must go because he lied about it and let our country’s divisions worsen and deepen to protect himself.

UPDATE: At the link you can listen to my segment on the WNYC radio show The Takeaway this morning.

Totally agree, just like the post you made about how John Ensign should have gone. Oh, wait…

Or how David Vitter (who actually broke the law) should go.
Weiner is an ass, but it is not like he SHOT A GUY IN THE FACE AND THEN TRIED TO COVER IT UP.

I’m not the NY Times, or any media outlet with lots of writers. I did think Ensign and Vitter should go, even if I didn’t have the time to blog about it. I pointed out that I called for Sanford to go right away, despite the fact that I was a big Sanford fan. And your Cheney reference is just stupid, you made a better point without it.
