The New York Times has reported that Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) AKA Carlos Danger, turned himself over to FBI and will plead guilty to a federal obscenity charge stemming from a sexting session with a 15-year-old girl.
A sad decline for a man who was once a bright star in his party’s firmament. Bringing to the job a passion, aggressiveness and tenacity typically lacking in his fellow colleagues, many Democrats believed his potential to be limitless….dare I say, even presidential. That was then, this is now. If only Carlos could have curbed his unseemly proclivities, but we all know some personal traits are just inherent. For Monsieur Carlos, he got his jollies by engaging in risky behavior – hence his nom de plume…Danger.
The FBI investigation into the underage sexting allegations started last year, and due to Weiner’s dumb-assery, it even wound up tainting the 2016 campaign after Federal agents found emails belonging to Huma Abedin – his then-wife and Hillary Clinton aide. This discovery prompted former FBI Director James Comey to make his now infamous public statement about the existence of the new emails related to the Clinton investigation.
Oh Carlos… you dumb shmuck.
