Is there anyone left who doesn’t think Anthony Weiner is the biggest dick in Congress? Anyone?
The New York Democrat is getting ready to run for mayor of New York City, so he’s been on a rampage about U.N. diplomats who use their diplomatic immunity to rack up unpaid parking tickets.
A classic case of misdirection: Point fingers at everyone else so no one points fingers at you
Pot, meet kettle. Turns out the hypocrite had his own stack of unpaid Washington, DC parking tickets – more than $2000 worth – until he quietly paid them off earlier this month.
The New York Daily News has the hypocritical headline:
From 2007 to March of this year, Weiner’s ticket total was 2,180 for violations near the Capitol and at Reagan Washington National Airport, Roll Call, the Capitol Hill newspaper, reported Tuesday.
A Weiner spokesman said all of the fees have since been paid. Aides to the Queens Democrat claim that part of the problem may have that D.C. sent notices to a bad address.
But Weiner “is pleased to have helped decrease the D.C. budget deficit,” the spokesman told Roll Call.
We really doubt that Weiner cares about the budget deficit, but he certainly hopes the voters have an attention deficit.
Weiner has raged against foreign dignitaries who ignore New York City’s traffic rules, and last year introduced a bill seeking to get $18 million in unpaid parking tickets from 180 nations for the city.
“It’s insulting to all New Yorkers that countries like Yemen, Zimbabwe and Iran owe the city millions in unpaid parking tickets,” Weiner said.
Let’s hear it for Anthony Weiner, ladies and gentlemen, the most appropriately named man in Congress.
