Weiner addresses the scandal directly in the first official message of his campaign, and makes an appeal for a second chance. "Look, I made some big mistakes. And I know I let a lot of people down. But I've also learned some tough lessons," he says.
Campaign slogan: " You've had a dick, now try a Weiner."
I want DeBlasio to win, but absent him I'd vote for this POS over Quinn. Quinn is the Devil.
Never saw the photo. Does he have a nice cock?
Well, at least Chris Quinn has had weeks to get ready for this eventuality. I wonder how she feels (crummy, no doubt) and whether she sees him as a genuine threat to her seemingly crumbling campaign.
Weiner is in?
Well, now that Weiner is fully committed, Weiner could appear on MSNBC/Chris Hayes' show: "All In."
I could never vote for someone named Weiner. That, plus his hideous nose. And everything about him reminds me of someone who would have shitbreath. Seriously, I would bet money he has the worst, stank breath.
I can't even stand to watch him on television and have to mute or change channels whenever he comes on.
Weiner: More Lewd Photos Might Come Out
This morning on a radio show, New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted that more lewd photos could come out:
“It is what it is,” Weiner told the radio host in his first live interview since announcing his mayoral bid. “People may decide they want to come forward and say, here’s another email that I got or another photo. I’m certainly not going to do that. So people may hear things that are true, they may hear things that are not true, but I’m going to try to keep being focused on issues that are important to New York City.”
Weiner resigned from Congress after getting caught sending lewd photos to women on the Internet.
The only people that go into politics are losers. People that cannot hack it in Corporate America.
Why is his name spelled like it would be "whiner" but he pronounces it "wee-ner?"
He should change his name to "Wiener" if he wants to pronounce it that way.
"Wiener" = person from Vienna.
What's John Liu like? Isn't it time NYC had a Chinese mayor?
Even Andrew Cuomo has proclaimed "SHAME ON US" if we elect him.
This guy is so fucked up on his own self worship it's nearly laughable.
And how the fuck did someone so hideously unattractive come to think of himself as 'sexy' and 'hot'? WTF? Does anyone think he's on drugs?
R25, NYC ONLY thinks Jews, blacks and white people are worthy of being mayor. It's an incredibly racist town
Weiner has 69 ways to make NYC better. Give the boy credit he might be a pervert but he's on to something there....
I hope Quinn and Weiner split votes and cancel each other.
Yuck, to both of them.
Liu is a crook who will probably get indicted. Election fraud and other great stuff.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
