By now, everyone in this country has heard about Anthony Weiner’s embarrassing tweets and texts that include pictures of certain parts of the private area, commonly known as sexting.
For those of you who didn’t know Anthony Weiner before this sexual scandal, he was a congressman from New York, a rising star in the Democratic Party. He was very smart, articulate, aggressive and an excellent politician. He could’ve run for any position he wanted and probably won , even the presidency. Then he decided to do something stupid. He took pictures of his “junk” and tweeted it to his followers. When confronted with that he, at first, denied it, then admitted everything and was forced to resign. He was a rising star that rose so fast, so far then came down crashing to the ground.
I personally, like many people, felt sorry for the guy and wished that he would get a second chance at politics because he was so good at it. After all everybody makes mistakes and learn from them. Now he’s running for Mayor of New York, but it seems that he has not learned from his mistake and continued to repeat the same thing, even worse. He’s going to crash again but this time he is not holding any position in government. Somebody please tell this man that the reason its called private parts is that they should remain just that, private, and just because his name is Weiner, he doesn’t have to show his wiener.
