Anthony Weiner admits sexting continued after 2011 resignation from Congress

By Tracy Connor, Staff Writer, NBC News

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, who resigned from Congress in 2011 after a sexting scandal, admitted Tuesday that his Internet shenanigans didn’t stop when he stepped down in disgrace.
Hours after a gossip website published raunchy texts and explicit photos it said were from 2012, Weiner held an extraordinary press conference — accompanied by his wife Huma Abedin, an aide to Hillary Clinton — to apologize and ask voters for a second chance.

*** and ***

On Monday, the Dirty claimed that Weiner — who allegedly used the alias Carlos Danger — met the unnamed 22-year-old woman on the social-networking site Formspring in July 2012, sent her lewd photos and had phone sex with her before the relationship “fizzled.”

He promised her a job and a condo, said the site, which posted pictures of body parts and graphic messages about sex acts.

“Even post scandal, I thought he was misunderstood. Until I got to know him,” the woman was quoted as saying. “I thought I loved him. Pretty pathetic.”

Isn’t that offer criminal?

INTERESTING: History’s dictators have always hated cats

Cats and Dogs

I find it endlessly fascinating that with one exception, history’s dictators have always hated cats, who, as independent creatures and nature’s libertarians, are not the best pet for someone who thinks he owns everybody else’s lives. Some individuals appear to resent their independence. For me, it’s the main characteristic that makes cats attractive.

The exception (I’ve pondered over this like a puzzle, for years) was Vladimir Ilich Lenin, who made a point of being photographed with his cat (I have its name around here somewhere) on more than one occasion.

It may not tell the whole story—nothing does—but the next time you wonder about a politician, or a potential employee or boss, or even that redhead you find intriguing, find out how they feel about cats. Come to think of it, I wonder where Obama, Romney, and Ron Paul stand.

It may tell you how they feel about individual liberty.

Hmm, one of my co-workers rescues dogs and has four. 

Wonder what that says about her.

Maybe I should get a cat?

Hmmm!

Seems like there’s a Big Bang episode that covers that.
