Posted on 05/26/2013 1:17:41 AM PDT by Brad from Tennessee
Democrats are obviously not happy with the idea of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner running for mayor of New York City. In an editorial meeting with some local newspapers, New York governor Andrew Cuomo said "shame on us," if Weiner is elected.
Rogers: "So if Anthony Weiner wants to run for mayor, he can run for mayor."
Cuomo: "He runs? He runs."
Rogers: "And if we elect him?"
Cuomo: "Shame on us."
Other than the fact that his own Democrats are already turning against him, Weiner has a number of other problems on his hands above and beyond the extra-marital sexting that forced his resignation from Congress.
For starters, Weiner cannot say that other pictures might not bubble up. But worse than that is that he is unable to say for certain that those he engaged in this kind of behavior with were of age.
Finally, above and beyond the salaciousness of the scandal, Weiner repeatedly lied to his constituents and the media for days about his behavior and also attempted to smear Andrew Breitbart, the man who factually and accurately broke what would become known as Weinergate. . .

At the least, this candidacy ought to be good for another couple hundred funny headlines.
Perfect democrat ticket, WEINER HOLDER!
Shame on Cuomo - most guys give up that sort of thing when they hit eighteen or twenty.
One theory of why Weiner is running for mayor is that he has several million dollars left in his congressional campaign account that can only be spent for campaign expenses. If he runs for mayor he can use the campaign account to dine out every night, rent limos, rent a suite in the Park Plaza Hotel and try to buy up all the remaining pictures of himself in the cyber world.
Cuomo flogs Weiner. Are you kidding?! This could be the funniest election ever!
Cuomo shakes Weiner down.
Cuomo belittles Weiner.
Weiner shrivels under Cuomo’s pressure.
Keep em coming!
They tend to pick it back up after they get married.
Cuomo takes a bite outta Weiner.
But this headline will be more likely...
“A First For Christine... Quinn Licks Weiner”
(Quinn being the carpetmunching lesbo City Council President who leads Weiner in the polls)
It’ hard to believe he could be worse than Cuomo.
I think Weiner can be beat.
Cuomo feels shame after public exposure of Weiner
Whatever we do, don’t get him angry.
You can’t beat a sore Weiner.
It's not because he showed one, it's because he IS one!
Weiner goes limp ... succumbs to flogging by the press. Responses to the barrage of questions is, well, flaccid.
Weiner gets a big head ... says he was a impotent, er, important member of Congress.
Dont forget besides his stash left over from 2009 ( almost half from out of the city)he is eligible for 1.5 million in tax dollars from the Campaign Finance Board.
Shame on us they elected you! Cuomo is silent when it comes to shelly silver, legislative leader in Albany. WHY so quiet? All he did was announce that he was going to pass a law banning the use of tax payer hush hush money to women sexually harrassed by his firend veto lopez righ after he did it. And cuomo has issues with wiener
Do it, NYC! You deserve him, morons!
This one is going to be fun!
Weiner ping! Possible headlines in comments in this thread are hilarious.
Gov Cuomo is sensitive to infidelity. His marriage broke up after he discovered that his wife had been carrying on with a clise, and married, family friend.
That might explain his opinion here.
Oh, I wish I were an Oscar, Mayor Weiner.
That is what I'd truly like to be - ee -ee.
Coz' if I were an Oscar, Mayor Weiner,
Everyone would be in love with me...
Candidate Inturuptus: NYC Dems Poised to Pull Weiner Before Premature Imaculation
Probably the ONLY thing I will ever agree with Cuomo on ever!
Andrew Cuomo may be sensitive to infidelity, but not to the Bible and the proscription against fornication. The Catholic Governor is shacked up in a mansion with his girlfriend, Sandra Lee. Here is a charming anecdote that doesn’t seem to bother most people in the decadent Hillary-loving state of New York —
“We are homebodies at heart, she[Lee] says. We spend a lot of our time here watching television in front of the fireplace. That is, when shes not entertaining in the Founding Fathers Room, as Lee has affectionately dubbed the dining room. Its the only one in the house that Andrew had specific ideas about, she says. If the dining room is Cuomos, the living room is very clearly Lees. I am happiest in here, she says of the light-filled space that incorporates her office.
That’s rich, coming from the gun grabbing, late term abortion advocate. Shame on you Cuomo for supporting infanticide.
People in New York consider infanticide the price of “sexual libertinism”. Someone else pays the price, as they “enjoy”.
His wife is of the Muslim b hood.
She wants to be first lady of nyc as do her folks, unless the muslim married a jew for love and family, and worked as Hillary’s right hand man for an innocent desire to be of service to our country and its Consitution, as Hillary will get around to doing in our dreams
His indiscretions were no doubt quite an annoyance to these people,
If the Republicans ran the reincarnated Mother Teresa, Wiener would still get over 90% of the vote. Who is kidding who?
Ugh. The New Yorkers will do it. The NYP readers will, just for the daily puns.
NY loves pricks.
Just like that.
“Cuomo Grills Weiner”
Says Weiner’s candidacy just won’t cut the mustard
However, Weiner vows to stick it out ....
‘RAT Bites Weiner
That makes a lot of sense.
Ambition is actually trumped by good old fashioned greed
Cuomo has a firm grip on the Weiner situation.
In fact we ought to have an Operation Chaos to Fund him, he can't be any worse than Doomberg.
At somepoint one may ask, will NY go the way of California and CALPER's and Detroit, if so let the Dem's own it...
Weiner’s behavior showed incredible lack of judgment. How did he know that the recipients were who they claimed to be? The person on the other side of the chat could have been a Republican operative, a Red Chinese or Iranian agent. The man is too stupid and irresponsible to hold any elected office.
Or at least when they start going blind.
Sorry...can’t get past the headline.
Exactly, what else do you need to know.
What's this "shame" thing comRAT Cuomo is referring to?
If I had to choose between the likes of Cuomo, Bloomberg and Weiner, I’d hang myself.
He will get the spot, too. New Yorkers do what they’re told And he has a LOT of $ and pressure behind him.
This is about his wife who has nothing to do with wanting to serve New Yorkers. The shameless Weiner is a Clintonian whose wife is Hillary II MB
Just explaining Cuomo’s reaction. You may be right, you may be wrong, but either way that’s peripheral to my post.
