New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, who resigned from Congress in 2011 after accidentally tweeting (instead of direct messaging) a photo of his junk to a random woman, is holding a press conference to address extramarital sexts that leaked today. And these NSFW messages, sent as "Carlos Danger," are naughty, naughty, naughty.
We aren't criticizing the art of sexting, but Weiner betrayed his (hot) wife's trust for a second time, which makes him a pretty scummy dude, and he lied to millions of voters, which makes him...well...a politician. Somehow, he did all of this with no actual benefit to himself. Normally, when a guy strays from his chick and abuses his office, he at least gets laid and rich out of it.
This is bad optics, as politicos like to say. (Even New Yorkers, usually proud of our collective degeneracy, can only handle so much before the nausea kicks in.) But it's also something worse: Breaking Guy Code. Doesn't matter if you're a Democrat, a Republican or an independent; Weiner makes all of us look worse by association of having a dick.
Tonight, no matter where you fall on the political spectrum, your lady will be wondering if you're just as untrustworthy as this schmuck. He's gotten us the paranoid stink-eye for transgressions we've never committed, and that's an unforgivable sin against mankind.
That said, "Carlos Danger" is a completely badass pseudonym. Points on that one, you creepy bastard.
