What to do about this Weiner now
Unexpectedly took the day off for a little trip to the mountains yesterday. Crashed out early after all that fresh air and boat riding. Have to deal with car stuff this morning, so I'm outsourcing my first post of the day to Mistermix who says Weiner should stay put. I'll give you the lede and the closer but I agree with his whole post.
I’ll leave the higher moral questions of whether Anthony Weiner should resign to the fainting couch brigade, but the politics are dirt simple. Weiner should remain in his seat until the next general election. [...]Do read the middle at the link for his cogent explanation of why this is would be the best outcome.
Weiner didn’t do anything that will merit more than a slap on the wrist from the House Ethics committee, and whatever national political damage he could do has already been done. He needs to stay in his seat, turn off his Blackberry, and ride out the next year so that Democrats can hold NY-9.
