Takeover Thursdays – Anthony Weiner Resigns
Finally ‘Weinergate’ has come to a conclusion; and with that said the 3 week circus involving Anthony Weiner and his infamous pics of him being shirtless and his ‘Frank and Beans’ can now pack up its tent and move on.
Before the circus could leave town Weiner had to have one more moment in the sun. Weiner held a press conference to announce that he would be stepping down as Representative of New York’s 9th District. Not sure if Weiner believed this would be a quick and quiet press conference, if he did then it is no shock that his self indulged pics are now all over the net.
So what is next for Anthony Weiner?
As embarrassing this scandal is it’s not the end of the world for Weiner; the key is he never did anything illegal… Stupid YES, but nothing illegal!
Look at Eliot Spitzer as an example of a comeback story; he stepped down as Governor of New York. Shortly after he was a contributor to CNN and then he turned that into a show on CNN. All the while as his successor David Paterson struggled as governor, there was actually polls showing that New Yorkers would be open to Spitzer returning as governor.
Weiner’s strength is his gift for gab; he has had some memorable moments on the floor of the House of Representatives. That is a talent that can carry over into the world of political pundit, he just needs to take a step back and let everything cool down. News networks like MSNBC and CNN will be knocking on his door and don’t be surprised if Fox News requests his services; can you imagine the segments with O’Reilly and Weiner going back and forth?
Who knows after a couple of years have passed Weiner might be able to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayor of NYC; I mean Washington DC elected a former crackhead twice!!
It’s a lil erie how Weiner talks about his use of Twitter and Weiner jokes in this video.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
