Anthony Weiner – the disgraced Democrat congressman known by his sexting name Carlos Danger -is in trouble after being caught in what the New York Post is calling a “flirty” text message conversation. Again.
If you weren’t aware, Weiner is married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who apparently hasn’t realized that she could probably do better than a has-been who should have long since deleted his Twitter account.
The details involved a private tweet session with someone Weiner thought was a young woman named “Nikki” but was actually a male, Republican student borrowing a friend’s Twitter account.
During the conversation, which happened while Weiner was in Los Angeles on business, the former New York representative said he was “deceptively strong…like a mongoose.”
“Nikki” also had Weiner talking about “strappy black heels” and “porn scenes.”
“Funny scene here,” Weiner texted. “I moved the tv so I could hear/see it while in the shower. I dropped it. Neighbor complained. Me Towel. Tv. Floor. And now concierge on the way.”
“Come out with just the towel on when he/she knocks, would pretty much = a tip for the concierge,” “Nikki” texted back.
“This is definitely a porn set up,” Weiner responded.
“Nikki” also joked about having a staff to get her Ubers, to which Weiner responded, “I’m pretty sure there’s a ‘my staff’ joke here.”
Weiner then gave “Nikki” his phone number and a way to find him in Los Angeles telling “her,” “Text and I’ll hit that location button thing.”
The young Republican behind it, who remains unidentified, said that the “amount of effort this took was the most alarming thing, given his history.”
“I was trying to think how to get him to say something stupid without making it so obvious,” he said.
Weiner said he was engaging in a rhetorical “joust” with what he knew was a “catfish,” or online person with a fake identity.
What is strange is this is the third time Weiner has been caught in a sexting scandal and each time his excuses get worse.
This man is in desperate need of help for both his wife and his child. And he needs it sooner rather than later.
