THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Give Weiner second chance

Over-sexed, self-involved, crazy-for-the-ladies men often make the best leaders. Presidents FDR, JFK, LBJ and Bill Clinton were unfaithful to the wives but faithful to their duties in the White House.

That is why New York citizens should take a second chance to elect former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner their next mayor.

Weiner should not be blackballed just because he sent sexy text messages and photos to women, then, lied about it. Nobody tells the truth about their sex lives and it is not the public’s business what politicians do away from the office. Tell me what they do from 9 to 5.

Like most rhinestone cowboys, Weiner is a lonely man away from the cameras. Weiner should be judged only on his ability to govern and stand up for the middle class.

Republicans hate him so much because he was never shy in Congress telling us when they had their hands in the cookie jar.
