Anthony Weiner

I was wondering where this sense of entitlement he seems to have came from. You know, this idea that what he does and what the little people do should not be compared?

Anthony David Weiner (pronounced /?wi?n?r/; born September 4, 1964) is the U.S. Representative for New York\’s 9th congressional district, which includes parts of southern Brooklyn and south and central Queens. Weiner is a Democrat, and has held the office since 1999. He was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in the 1998 mid-term elections, filling the seat previously occupied by Democrat Charles Schumer who successfully ran for the U.S. Senate that year. Weiner defeated his Republican opponent, Louis Telano, by a margin of 66 percent to 23 percent. He was re-elected handily for six additional terms, receiving 59 percent of the vote in 2010.[2] He was an unsuccessful candidate for Mayor of New York City in the 2005 election.

Previously, Weiner was a member of the New York City Council from 1992 to 1998, and an aide to former U.S. Representative Schumer from 1985 to 1991. He is a graduate of the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

Ah, that\’s it then. He\’s a professional politician, never had a real job.

  1. It’s often fun to pronounce American names of German origin properly. I particularly enjoyed if for the financial mogul Sandy Weil.

  2. …what the little people do..

    I suspect that, compared to Weiner, the ‘little people’ would be just about everybody, except maybe John Holmes.

  3. You surely must have seen the wrong pic. Compared to Weiner, very few are little people.
