Adios, Carlos

A candidate for mayor
Has been sexting with a stranger.
In cyberspace, his nom de plume
Is, get this, Carlos Danger!

He once got caught and lost his job
And promised to reform,
But lying, to a politician,
Seems to be the norm.

So Weiner (yes, that is his name!)
Continues to campaign,
Although from sending pen**-pictures,
He cannot abstain.

Though every single candidate
Must have his share of flaws,
I think New Yorkers need a mayor
Who won’t drop his drawers!

    Just like someone who said "Well, I am not a crook" in his resignation speech. Politicians cannot be trusted. Good write

    hahaha, I saw him on tv just this morning, telling people he was not DOWN in the mud yet. He was still campaigning and thinking he had a chance!

    Too funny ilene ... and, at the same time, too sad. Voters have the capacity (or ignorance) to overlook many flaws, but I think texting private parts to young ladies might just be a hard line to cross. I guess this puts a new meaning to private messages!
