Avoiding Weiner like the Plague

Perhaps Representative Anthony D. Weiner should hang a permanent “Help Wanted” sign outside his office.

For the third time in the past 16 months, Mr. Weiner, a Democrat who represents parts of Brooklyn and Queens, is going to have a new chief of staff. The current one, Geoffrey C. Plague, a well-respected Capitol Hill veteran who started in December, is leaving to take a job in the education field.


One More Member of Weiner’s Staff Heads Out the Door

Mr. Plague’s departure is the latest example of the high turnover in Mr. Weiner’s staff. In the last six years, Mr. Weiner, who is running for mayor in 2009, has had more turnover than any other member of the New York delegation to the House of Representatives, according to an analysis of Congressional data. About half of the members of his current staff have been on his payroll for less than a year.

By his own account, Mr. Weiner is an intense and demanding employer, with a propensity to raise his voice or pound on furniture when he wants to make a point. It is a hard-charging style, honed in Brooklyn, which appeals to some — but not all — in Washington, Mr. Weiner said in an interview last month.

So what, he demands a lot of his staffers and some people cant take it. He is a good man and obviously you are very biased against him by posting something like that.
The Queenscrapper is his own little propaganda machine.

Look at that photo again.

Would the correct caption be: "I did not have sexual relations with that young boy. I am utterly incapable of relations of any kind with anybody."

This bum can't even keep a chief of staff for a few weeks. He has the most turn over of staff in Washington. Why? Besides being nasty and Immiture. Is he hidding something?

"Avoiding Weiner like the Plague"

Sound advice whether you're:

1.) Religious and don't eat pork products
2.) Male and heterosexual
3.) Wish to avoid complete jerks

You people make so many homo remarks about Weiner meanwhile if there is anything that Weiner is hiding about his love life is that his favorite kind of women are college age.
As far as your homo remarks it has been and always will be those that throw around the most gay remarks and are always accusing people of being gay that are the guys that are actually gay themselves.

You people....

And "you people" isn't code-speak?

Maybe you're the one with the problems!

Weiner should vet his flunkies that he's hiring to troll blogs, this guy's terrible!

Isn't it odd that this writer is throwing around remarks accusing people of being gay?

What rule applies to his (her?) remarks? Do we have a gay writer here?

What do you say, Congressman Weiner?

No, I am straight, I dont work for Weiner and I am a lifelong resident of Ridgewood and Glendale.
I am embarrased of the ingorance and stupidity of my neighbors.
YOU people, my neighbors are idiots.

Keep insisting you're straight. Don't you think that the gay "lifestyle" is nothing to be ashamed of? Don't leave the impression that there's a problem with being gay. It sounds very, very defensive. Like "guilty as charged!"

If you are, in fact, so ashamed of "the 'ingorance' and stupidity of my neighbors", why remain as a lifelong resident? Perhaps it's that your neighbors who know you so well are deeply ashamed of you and your lifelong stupidity. Eh?

Is it possible that your neighbors know, better than you do, how to spell "embarrassed" or "ignorance"?

There is an old superstition that gays cannot spell.
