God, this made my day, on so many levels:
Disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner bowed out of the New York City mayoral contest with his middle finger raised to the reporters who covered his scandal-ridden campaign.
His wife Huma Abedin was not looking on as he gave his concession, and he didn’t even thank his long-plagued wife in his remarks. Abedin was said to be hundreds of miles away in the Hamptons on Tuesday night but spotted coming out of the couple’s Manhattan apartment Wednesday morning.
Rather than bowing out gracefully, Weiner decided to throw one final insult at the voters by flipping his middle finger at the crowd as he drove off as captured by NY1 photographers.
Instead of having his wife at the midtown bar where he and his supporters gathered Tuesday night, a different woman was attracting attention: Sydney Leathers, the woman with whom he had a sexting relationship, crashed his party…
Leathers was seen wandering around the pub- clearly as an uninvited guest- giving statements to reporters and showing off her widely publicized plastic surgeries including a breast augmentation and a nose job.
Her presence delayed the evening’s festivities as it took Weiner half an hour to avoid a confrontation and run through a nearby fast food restaurant…
New Yorkers also voted against another scandal-plagued politician on Tuesday as former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer lost his race for city comptroller.
Spitzer – who like Weiner, is married – was forced to resign five years ago after he admitted to hiring prostitutes.
His wife Silda Spitzer was not at the Tuesday night event and never made any campaign appearances during his nine-week bid for comptroller.
They both lost.
There is hope for mankind.
