Weiner Regrets Disappointing Constituents, Doesn’t Rule Out Return To Politics

0

Former Congressman Anthony Weiner spoke for the first time about the scandal that forced him to resign from Congress last year.

Weiner made headlines this week after allowing a reporter from People Magazine into his house to speak of “the scandal” he was involved in, and his life since he stepped down from Congress.

Weiner declared that he regretted what his actions had put his wife and constituents through. However, he said that new responsibilities ensures he thinks less of what happened.

“It’s not like I sit all day replaying it in my mind…with a baby, it is pretty easy to put things into perspective,” Weiner said.

Weiner has spent his time away from politics taking care of his 6-month-old daughter, and performing household chores such as laundry, Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, pointed out.

The former Congressman added that he has no plans to campaign, but he has not ruled out a future political career.

“I can’t say absolutely that I will never run for public office again, but I’m very happy in my present life, ” Weiner said.

After a period of seclusion, Weiner’s been popping up in the press more often, recently speaking out in favor of the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act, and an interview with the New York Times about Fox News.

  1. Weiner is a loudmouth and an a One Jerk and everyone knows it.  You blew it
    big time when you exploited your LITTLE WEINER.  Keep it tucked in now,  Shame on you for keeping those $$$$$$$$$$$$$MILLIONS$$$$$$$$$$$$$.  You should be forced
    to return it to the Democratic party.  It is not your money to spend as you choose to.

  2. They have a son, not a daughter. By the way, he did not just allowed this reporter into  his house, he actively looked for someone for a nice spin piece. When NY Post reported several days ago how the pair looked to arrange a friendly interview, he flipped out, called this all a nasty lie. Even when the interview was taped already. Now he was forced to admit it was the truth all along. Fits the pattern, doesn’t it? That how it all started, somebody else did it, remember?

  3. geezus, ya’ll never comment on these blogs, where the fuck did you come from? do u guys get paid to show up like this on community blogs? i didnt know trolling is now a paid position. 

  4. hey Ned, next time you guys need a slight increase in readership and commenting on the blog, just write something about Weiner, the democratic party candidates and/ or low-iq racists, sit back and let them swarm. 

  5. i think u misspelled whores… 
    simply cus “chores” doesnt really make sense. 

    i mean “take care of your wife as one of your chores” ????? well isnt that a chore for everyone who is married? to take care of your spouse? its usually a chore that one should want to do, hence the marriage. 

    I’m guessing u dont get paid that much money. 

  6. […] Weiner resigned in 2011 after it was revealed that he was “sexting” with women other than his wife. Before his resignation, the pol was widely considered to be a front runner to succeed Mayor Michael Bloomberg and put together a warchest of $4 million – which he still maintains today and exceeds many of the current mayoral contenders’ campaign cash. When asked in July about his future plans, he refused to rule out a run for public office. […]
