NEW YORK (PIX11) – Reports that Anthony Weiner sent naked pics of himself under the alias ‘Carlos Danger’ — AFTER his resignation from Congress — have resulted in a hilarious name generator allowing anyone to plug in their name for a scandal-worthy new nickname.
Weiner has vaguely admitted that “”I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have” at a Chelsea press conference Tuesday afternoon.
Though he had always expected additional naughty material to come to light, these new photos may be a death sentence to his campaign.
He may have the support and forgiveness of his wife, Huma, but his constituents may not be as forgiving.
Weiner is denying having sent the pics under the pseudonym ‘Carlos Danger’.
But his opponents aren’t skipping a beat — they’re hopping onto this issue saying “the amorous pen name Carlos Danger reflected poorly on Hispanics” and that he should “take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the web and out of the race for mayor of New York City.”
Even New York Sports Clubs is taking having fun with Weiner’s scandal:
It turns out that Weiner’s newest scandal has taken him down in the polls, and may cost him this race.
In a poll done by Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, data shows that ” If Weiner drops out of the race, Quinn gets 30% to Thompson’s 26%,” de Blasio still trailing at 21% and John Liu at 10%.
The director, Maurice Carroll, also notes “Quinn scores 53 percent for moral character, 59 percent for experience and 43 percent for understanding. Scores for Weiner are 17 percent for moral character, 57 percent for experience and 51 percent for understanding.”
This is important — even though Weiner’s admired for his experience and understanding, his moral character will tear him down.
