MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki offered up an unpleasant chapter from Anthony Weiner’s early political career during an appeal to New York voters to reject the former congressman’s apparent bid for Mike Bloomberg’s job:
“This is the story that reveals something important about what Weiner’s been willing to do in his public life. He made an ugly appeal to voters’ worst nature. He did it at a very sensitive time. He did it to get ahead and because he figured no one would catch him. Really he did get away with it. If it hadn’t been for the Twitter silliness, he’d be well on his way to being Mayor right now and maybe more.”
