Weiner's mayoral hopes dim as Twit hits the fan (comments by Ed Koch)

Weiner's mayoral hopes dim as Twit hits the fan By DAVID SEIFMAN, City Hall Bureau Chief

Former Mayor Ed Koch said Rep. Anthony Weiner is in a pickle over Weinergate -- and the young mayor wannabe must come clean to save his career.

"It's not too late to prevent damage by turning [the Twitter case] over to the Capitol police and let them find the hacker," Koch said yesterday.

But Koch, on his NY1 show Tuesday night, went even further.

"You do commit a crime if you give false information to the police and report a crime when a crime didn't take place," he said while discussing possible reasons why the embattled congressman hasn't filed a police report about the alleged hacking.

"I think he's in trouble . . . I think he has a problem," the former mayor added, because of the media firestorm and Weiner's refusal to immediately answer all questions.

Koch's statements are a clear warning that Weiner's long-sought dream of becoming New York's next mayor may be going up in smoke.

Geez, I have to stop eating and drinking by the computer. This picture of Weiner’s head on an Oscar Mayer weiner made me LOL and make a small mess.

Wiener is in a pickle, eh?

I wonder if Koch actually said that, or if the reporter is just summing up in his own rather well chosen words.

Huma is going to talk to Hillary for advice of how to deal with a husband who behaves badly in the marriage.

I could picture this idiot as the next Mayor of NYC. Our very own Gavin Newsome.

“He is the most unappetizing, arrogant Congressman there is.”

Yes, he really is, and that is saying something. If you look up “obnoxious” in the dictionary, his picture will be there.

I’m hoping Weiner becomes mayor.As I no longer live or work in NYC, the entertainment value of watching Weiner from Long Island is priceless.Especially so, since in NYC it will be impossible for him to blame Republicans for anything.I can’t wait!!!

Should have been something like "Weiner's mayoral hopes go limp as Twit hits the fan."

Yeah right. If Wiener does that, he's done. We found out yesterday he is in contact with a porn star on this account. What other gems would be found if the authorities got involved.

Porn Star Ginger Lee

Unappetizing. Perfect word for this piece of slime. I have disliked him intensely since he first came on the scene. Never guessed he had major sex problems - just thought that he was a grandstanding, loudmouthed, bad-tempered Chuck Schumer mini-me.

So when he runs again, will he win by 80% or 90%? Seems to me this whole thing will make him more appealing to the Commurats.

Can’t that little insufferable Weiner get a media job on Clinton News Network???? Client 9 did . . . There apparently is no self-respect on CNN, so he’d be perfect.

Weiner may not become mayor if the GOP puts up some stiff competition

She’ll be told: Publicly stand by him, privately tell him he will support YOUR career for the rest of the marriage, and he will let you have your lesbian love affairs without comment.

As a lifelong New Yorker, I am utterly thrilled that Weiner is now far less likely to become mayor.

Weiner is pulling out of politics and going to work as the spokesman for The Tennessee Bun Company. He’s making a series of commercials called “WEINER ON BUNS”.
