"Anthony Weiner, who resigned from Congress in June 2011 due to a sexting scandal, has found himself yet again the middle of a racy wrongdoing. The latest incident suggests that Weiner, the husband of one of Hillary Clinton's closest confidants, Huma Abedin, could pose a problem for Clinton's campaign. According to the New York Post, the former New York congressman claimed he was deceptively strong … like a mongoose, in a private online chat with a college student during a recent July trip to Los Angeles. He also gave his phone number to the student, whom he thought was a woman. According to the Post, Weiner was actually online-flirting with a young male Republican. The online individual, a New York student using a female friend's Twitter account and calling himself Nikki, baited Weiner into chatting about strappy black heels and porn scenes. Weiner admitted to the online chat in an email to the Post.", www.washingtonexaminer.com
"First he was Carlos Danger. Now — in yet another sexting scandal — he’s a randy “mongoose.” Sext fiend Anthony Weiner boasted of his animal prowess — claiming he was “deceptively strong . . . like a mongoose” — and gave his cellphone number to a college student during a flirty, private online chat on a recent trip to Los Angeles, The Post has learned. But the joke was on the horndog pol, whose wife, Huma Abedin, is a top aide and close confidante of Hillary Clinton. The target of his online affection was really a dude. A young Republican-turned- “catfish” baited the disgraced former congressman into chatting about “strappy black heels” and “porn scenes.” Weiner even made a cornball double entendre about his “staff.” “Funny scene here,” Weiner writes in one of the Twitter direct messages, sent from his hotel room in LA, where he had traveled", nypost.com
"There’s no requirement that one be intelligent, caring or even sensible to run for office. That, combined with a touch, if not a full-blown case, of narcissism, is precisely why so many politicians get caught doing ridiculous things. It’s also why we so enjoy their misfortunes.", www.sandiegouniontribune.com
"If there’s anyone who still thinks politics is boring, the fascinating and thought-provoking documentary “Weiner” will cure that misconception. In telling the as-it-happens story of the fall, rise and fall of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, ...", www.sltrib.com
"'Weiner' is an extraordinary documentary because it is not so much a portrait of a candidate, but of a candidate's id -- that impulsive, libidinous, aggressive, childish internal force that seeks pleasure and immediate gratification above all else.", www.cleveland.com
"In 2011, Anthony Weiner, a powerful New York congressman, resigned his seat after it was revealed that he'd been 'sexting' - sending photos of himself with an erection bulging beneath his underwear. In C-SPAN footage from his congressional career, Weiner is shown as a combative antidote to a chamber full of passive-aggressive stuffed shirts. The spectacle is threefold, though the elements have a way of overlapping: 1 You're witnessing the anatomy of a disaster as seen from the inside; 2 You're watching a somewhat bizarre personality deal with a cataclysm of his own making; and 3 You're witness to a marriage that is straining almost to the point of collapse. [...] he persists in his campaign and believes, at times, that he's connecting. If Weiner is likable in spite of himself, Abedin is downright admirable, a master of self-control even with the provocation of a colossal betrayal and the irritation of a camera in her face. [...] what makes it", www.chron.com
"At first, it seemed like they were, as the charismatic Weiner chipped away at public skepticism (if not the media's) and climbed to the top of the polls. [...] it all came crashing down, as more lurid photos and text exchanges emerged, some that occurred after Weiner's resignation. [...] for some reason, Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin — a longtime top aide to Hillary Clinton, and current vice chair of her presidential campaign — let the filmmakers keep going. [...] it makes for riveting filmmaking — as a portrait of a campaign in crisis, of a fascinatingly flawed politician, and especially of a marriage. Watch Abedin's face as she stares at Weiner on the day the scandal breaks anew, disappointed and stunned, with no words spoken and none necessary. [...] we see that Twitter image of bulging underwear, the humiliating media coverage, the resignation. Abedin, ever the pragmatist, suggests to Weiner's visibly upset top aide that when she", www.seattlepi.com
