Anthony Weiner capped off a hard Tuesday (Sept. 10) with a lovely display of maturity and grace.
The former congressman, who left office after a sexting scandal, tried to make a run for the New York City mayor position this fall but failed rather spectacularly, especially after another sexting partner, named Sydney Leathers, came out of the woodwork.
So it was Tuesday night, after Weiner gave his concession speech, that CNN affiliate NY-1’s Lindsey Christ caught Weiner flipping the bird to the media and on-lookers as he drove away from his election night party.
Christ tweets, “Well – we have it on camera. Weiner drove off, middle finger raised at an NBC reporter. Curtain down. Bam.” and “Press, Weiner security scuffle. Reporter: “These are the type of people you surround yourself w/, who push us?” Cue” and then the above picture.
Apparently, there was a dust-up between one of Weiner’s security and a reporter, the reporter asked the above question and Weiner rode off into the sunset, middle finger raised. Classy.
But that’s not all!
Weiner’s latest sexting partner — and now porn star — Ms. Leathers was waiting at the pub where Weiner was holding his election night party, telling the media she was there for attention and giving them quite the soundbites outside. Weiner did manage to give Leathers the slip.
