Meet Carlos Danger: Man of Mystery and Messaging

15.pngNew York Democrats must have the weakest bench of leaders in the country. Otherwise, it is hard to see how two disgraced politicians in sex scandals could be leading in the polls to resume power. On one hand you have Elliot Spitzer who, while Governor, used call girls with regularity. He now appears to be praying himself into the comptroller’s office at churches and synagogues. Then you have Anthony Weiner who sent out disgusting pictures of his genitals to women, lied to the press and public, and engaged in conduct that would be at best considered sexual harassment and at worst stalking. Yet, he is leading in the polls for a race for mayor of New York. Now, Weiner is again before the public asking for forgiveness — this time for new pictures and messages sent after his resignation and the birth of his child by his ever forgiving wife. Some as recently as last summer. By the way, Weiner now appears to go under the nom de guerre of Carlos Danger. It is not clear if he will use that name as mayor or just use it when he sends women pictures of himself in various obscene poses.


The most recent disclosures involved text messages with an unidentified 23-year-old woman that took place on the social media website Formspring in August 2012. That date is important because it is a full a year after his tearful apology for lying to the public, attacking the media, and effectively stalking women with pictures of his genitalia and naked shots of his body. It was seven months after the birth of his child with Huma Abedin, former aide to Hillary Clinton and half of this political power couple. She insisted “What I want to say . . . I have forgiven him, I believe in him” and said that Weiner made “horrible mistakes, both before he resigned from Congress, and after.” That’s it? Sure he made horrible mistakes while in office and then did them again after being forced out of office, but I believe in him. I am not sure why voters would care that this power couple is so self-perpetuating or self-forgiving but then again I did not understand so many Democrats defending his return to politics. [The same phenomenon is evident with Spitzer who served as New York State Attorney General while committing crimes that others were being jailed for. Yet, Democrats still insist that such hypocrisy should not bar him from office. It is once again an example of the ruling elite on America’s Animal Farm. It does not matter that these were crimes and that Spitzer was putting others in jail. While many of us have questioned the prosecution of prostitution, Spitzer was the chief law enforcement officer and held others to a different standard than himself.]

Weiner told the public “I want to bring my vision to the people of the city of New York. I hope they are willing to still continue to give me a second chance.” This would seem a third chance, but if you were willing to consider him after the first chance, I suppose the number will not matter much. It is clearly not a deal breaker for Abedin.

CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash noted that Abedin appears to have been trained by the best for the life of the power couple and ruling elite: “she learned at the knee of Hillary Clinton, somebody who most famously stood by her man politically. And so she’s following in those footsteps.”

As for the woman who Weiner offered to help find a position and a condo, she now feels betrayed. A curious position for a woman who engaged in phone sex with a married man but she stated “I just want people to really know he’s lying when he acts like he has changed.” It is a morality play without a single moral player or concluding moral message. This is truly becoming Felliniesque. If you want to see why our leaders treat us with such open contempt, consider the one in four polled New York voters who want to make this man mayor of their city.

The tweets also involve Weiner offering to find the woman a job, condo in Chicago for their encounters and requests that she delete the messages. This included using his influence to secure a job for the woman as a blogger for Politico. The woman was in this case a willing recipient of the messages and said that they had phone sex and exchanged nude pictures. One site said that Carlos Dangers was corresponding with a Sydney Leathers in late July, described as a “progressive activist” from Indiana. Dangers and Leathers. No wonder the New York Times (only now) is calling for Weiner to leave the race.

With Abedin at his side, Weiner just repeated his earlier heartfelt apologies almost verbatim: “As I have said in the past, these things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress. While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me.” Well not as far behind you as we thought. As for the timing, Weiner said “Some of these things happened before my resignation, some happened after.” For most of us, that is more than a simple timing issue. It means that after the whole act about contrition for attacking reporters and lying to everyone, he went back to photographing himself in the nude and sextexting.

Abedin immediately said that again she forgives him and indicated that she thinks the world of him or Carlos Danger or both.

As for the woman he was going to get a condo in Chicago for, their relationship “fizzled” in November 2012. She says “even post scandal, I thought he was misunderstood. Until I got to know him. I thought I loved him. Pretty pathetic.” Yes it is but not quite as pathetic as New York democrats pushing Anthony Weiner for mayor of New York. Of course, now if you elect Weiner, you get his raunchier more edgy personality as Carlos Danger as a bonus.

  1. Huma needs to take away his smart phone, tablet and camera. She also needs to put strict parental controls on the home computer. He should only be allowed an old brick phone set up for incoming calls from her or outgoing calls to 911. If he’s going to act like a horny, irresponsible 14 year old, she needs to treat him like one.

  2. Weiner and Spitzer ought to divorce the wives and move into a red light district somewhere in NYC. They should work the hookers until they are dead tired every day and night. If they catch something well so be it. Hookers know how to handle guys like this where wives cannot. This would get them both off the internet and they would both be happy. Mayor and Comptroller, sitting in a tree, each with a Hooker on his knee,….

  3. Like many men, he’s still fourteen in social development. He even pronounces his name wrong. From the German/Austrian pronunciation it should be “winer,” the second syllable taking preference. Who let this hot dog out?

    There’s the guy I love!

    (although I disagree about Weiner. I think he has now proven himself too crazy to be trusted in office.)

    We need a Spitzer in every AG’s office – and a Warren in every Senate seat.

  5. The reason Weiner and Spitzer have NO political allies is because they can’t be trusted BY OTHER POLITICIANS. Not because they are brave mavericks. But, because they are depraved maniacal sociopaths who will stab anyone in the back[including their spouses] for power. Nobody came to their aid but their compliant spouses. And, Spitzer’s wife has apparently finally wised up. However, people will still vote for them for reasons that escape the regular people w/ just plain old common sense. I have found rationalization to be as addictive as crystal meth in this duopoly culture of ours. Actually, a meth head can sweat it out for a day w/o a hit. But, a myopic voter needs @ least a few rationalizations daily, otherwise their world will crumble.

  6. Mike S.,

    I’m not going to argue with a voter who is as familiar with the local issues and candidates as you are. If both men win at least I now have a better understanding as to why.

    1. Blouise,

      Let’s just say that though I only live there four months a year now, I have some very close inside political connections in both the City and State. Corporate America has grudges against both these men.

  7. REVEALED: The Obama election campaigner, 23, who ‘received illicit messages and had phone sex with Anthony Weiner’ a year after humiliated wife forgave him

    Sydney Leathers, a liberal activist from Illinois, is allegedly the woman who revealed explicit images she received from Weiner

    Relationship allegedly began in July 2012 and continued until November 2012 – but woman said they most recently spoke this April

    Consisted of frequent online conversations and daily ‘phone sex’ calls over the course of six months

    Miss Leathers is a blogger for the Indiana Progressive Liberals and was a field organizer for Obama’s re-election campaign

    Weiner admitted that he was the man in the messages on Tuesday during press conference at the Gay Men’s Health Crisis in Manhattan

  8. I used to live in NYC and would go back if it becomes possible.
    I would have voted for both of them. Weiner was a good spokesperson in congress for many of us.
    Unfortunately he cannot control himself, it appears or he would not have continued. I am not a mental health professional but this is so self destructive that it seems more then just an ‘I have power so therefore I can.’
    If he were to become mayor I would be afraid he/policies would become derailed by more of the same.
    It is a sad chapter for someone who had such a good start.

  10. Mike S, Good to know. i was wondering why Ms Quinn was so unpopular although Weiner might have sealed the deal for her.. You would vote for both. I would have voted for both until yesterday.

  11. “Christine Quinn is the candidate endorsed by the women’s groups.”

    SwM,

    Ms. Quinn has been a chief abettor of the policies of Michael Bloomberg. Her choice by women’s groups goes to the fact she is gay and yes it would be nice to have a gay, female mayor of NYC. christine Quinn though is not the person.

    As far as this sex stuff goes it is merely a distraction. I’m not a political insider but I was shocked to learn many, many years ago by a friend who was an insider of the sexual proclivities of certain politicians I respected. since this person was a party to them, I had no reason to doubt her. In the 36 years since I learned this I have seen nothing in the political scene to disabuse me of the notion that most politicians exploit their positions sexually and that many people, both male and female are political groupies. In the Republican Primaries for instance we had a man running who was committing adultery with a Congressional Aide, while he was leading the fight to impeach Bill Clinton. Newt Gingrich was a serial adulterer and a pig with women, yet that didn’t hurt him raising many millions in his presidential bid. David Vitter also used I go on.

    The fact is that Anthony Weiner was an excellent and courageous congressman and Eliot Spitzer was a courageous opponent of Wall Street and the banks. His problems as Governor of NY stemmed mainly from his opposition to the corporate control of NY State. His replacement was David Patterson, who managed to be both duplicitous and stupid at the same time.
    Now it is Andrew Cuomo, who is a pale shadow of his father and a power hungry control freak.

    Since the issue of sexuality has been thrust into this I must comment personally. In my opinion both Weiner and Spitzer are immature when it comes to sexuality. However, in my life I’ve known many men who are little different in mindset, yet much worse to their wives and other women in reality.
    The idea of sexting is ridiculous and silly to me. I wouldn’t have done it if I was single, but admit that when I was last single no-one knew about cell phones.
    As far as using prostitutes I must admit that as a 68 year old man I’ve not only never used, or been in the presence of one, but I’ve never even been to a strip club. Those activities always seemed dumb to me. With that said, based on their records, were I able to, I would vote for both of these men. Incidentally, when I used to live in NY Anthony Weiner was my Congressman.

  12. “Girls” star Lena Dunham has a theory on Anthony Weiner: he’s taken advantage of women because he can.

    Analyzing a chat that Weiner allegedly had online, the actress tweeted on Tuesday: “In Weiner’s latest text exchange the girl in question says ‘I can’t believe someone like you would pay attention to someone like me…It’s literally a dream come true.’ This cuts to the heart of the abuse of power that is the substance of so many sex scandals.”

    “The problem isn’t adultery, or perversity,” Dunham wrote. “It’s wielding your position of authority to subjugate the women who dream of a piece of the pie.”

    Dunham, a native New Yorker, has already endorsed Christine Quinn, who’s running against Weiner in the city’s mayoral race.” Huffington Post

  13. (I agree with the comments, nevertheless…)
    Let’s see, I caught “nom de Guerre,” “Animal Farm,” “ruling elite” (twice), and “power couple.” I was bracing for “Webster’s defines…” Just dial back the cliches a half point or so.

  14. AW or Carlos needs professional help. He is sick. His wife is not doing him or her any favor by sticking with him. He will do it again. The only question is when. Get him an old flip phone with no texting capabilities! 🙂

  15. SwM,

    That’sa very good reason but you’d have to go with me into the booth and keep reminding me …;)

  16. Blouise, A lot of women can’t accept Spitzer. He is brilliant in the financial arena and his skills are needed.
