Scandal-hit Democrats both lose out: Spitzer bows out gracefully while Weiner signs off ...

Complete Headline: Scandal-hit Democrats both lose out: Spitzer bows out gracefully while Weiner signs off with a middle finger moments after Sydney Leathers drops by his 'victory' party

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.

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.

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.

The mood was notably happier in Brooklyn where former public advocate Bill de Blasio celebrated his victory alongside his family, with the whole crew dancing next to one another in front of a cheering crowd.

Maybe Obama could appoint him to something. He clearly has the right attitude for a Supreme Court justice.

Sydney Leathers shows up at Anthony Weiner election party

By KATIE GLUECK
politico.com

The woman whose sexually explicit allegations about Anthony Weiner derailed his mayoral campaign showed up at his Election Night watch party, reports said. Sydney Leathers, the young woman who offered graphic details about her online relationship with the New York City mayoral hopeful this summer, came to his Tuesday evening event, according to media and Twitter accounts.

“Sydney Leathers arrives at Anthony Weiner’s primary night party (uninvited, to be sure),” read a New York Daily News post, featuring a picture of Leathers in a revealing red dress.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Now that he’ll soon be out of the headlines, what will the next distraction be?

Oddly, the Dems can say they rejected their scandal retreads, while South Carolinians elected theirs to Congress.

Meanwhile, Republican Mark Sanford had no problem re-starting his political career.

Sanford is superficially more telegenic than Weiner or Spitzer.
