Mr. Wiener's candidacy was condemned by NY Democratic Gov. Cuomo for good
reason. The disgraced congressman is combative, has a strange sense of morality,
is far to the left of Stalin and does not represent what both sides of the isle
hope to achieve in a political leader. Wiener would be bad for NYC, the
Democratic party and any hope for civil political dialog in addressing
today's problems. It is not a matter of "rehabilitation."
Deseret News, this is what you get for cutting your newsroom staff, and posting
articles from interns. You have egg on your face:1. Mark Sanford
never resigned from office. In fact, he survived an attempt at impeachment, and
served out his entire term as Governor. He didn’t run for re-election,
but that isn’t resigning from office,” as this article indicates.2. Eliot Spitzer was never the Mayor of New York, he was a member of the US
House of Representatives.3. Senator David Vitter was a sitting US Senator
(not “state senator” as indicated here) and never resigned from
office in 2010, as this list indicates.These are amateur mistakes.
