The hits just keep on coming for Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner.
New York state child protection authorities are now investigating whether the former Democratic congressman might have endangered his young son by putting him in a “sexting” picture that Weiner sent to a woman he had never met.
The picture shows the man known formerly to other women as “Carlos Danger” lying in his skivvies next to a boy thought to be the son he had with top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Abedin has left her husband, announcing a separation hours after the latest sexting reports were made public.
This story probably ought to just go away. Weiner ought to just disappear, never to be seen or heard from in the public domain ever again. Abedin ought to be able to go on with her life as a key aide and adviser to the Democratic presidential nominee.
It has captured the attention — if not the imagination — of many Americans. Why? Weiner once was considered a rising political star. He was a brash congressional loudmouth who then quit Congress when reports first surfaced of his penchant for showing off his manhood to women other than his wife.
Yes, I wish this clown would disappear.
First, though, New York state authorities need to determine if anything untoward occurred with this man and his son.
In the meantime, many of Americans — likely yours truly included, I’m sad to admit — will stay tuned to see how this story plays out.
I’m hoping to learn that nothing bad happened. That would save the youngster from a lot of pain. It also would save the rest of us from having to read about the boy’s idiotic dad.
