Anthony Weiner, With Pants, Voted Today.


Boy, in that special election in New York’s 9th Congressional District, Democrat David Weprin just can’t catch a break. Now Anthony Weiner is admitting he voted for him.

In the linked report, it says that Weiner “showed up alone, wearing jeans and a blazer.” It’s bad when news reports need to emphasize you were wearing pants.

In New York, polls are open until 9 p.m. In addition to Republican Bob Turner and Democrat Weprin, the ballot also includes Socialist Workers Party candidate Chris Hoeppner. The Socialist Workers Party submitted 7,080 signatures to qualify for the ballot.
