NY Dem Rep. Jerry Nadler Blasts Weiner, “He Needs Serious Psychiatric Help”

When it comes to Anthony Weiner’s run for mayor of New York City, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is not parsing words: he wants Weiner out.

“I think he should withdraw, I think he needs serious psychiatric help,” Nadler told members of the press today. “He should take care of his own problems and let New York figure its policies and its mayor.”

Nadler, whose congressional district includes a large swath of Manhattan and Brooklyn, said that the fact that Weiner — a former congressman himself — continued his behavior after he resigned should make New Yorkers question whether they can trust him.

“I mean, to have done it again after what we went through in the resignation, he has shown himself to be a serial liar. You can’t believe him, and he’s also shown monumentally bad judgment,” Nadler said. “How can you trust his judgment as a mayor?”

But Nadler wanted to make one thing clear, he also feels this way about Eliot Spitzer, who is running for NYC Comptroller.

“I think that the problems that Anthony Weiner — like Eliot Spitzer — exhibited while in office, and after, pose fundamental problems to the serious governance of New York,” Nadler told NBC News. “They both exhibit a fundamental dishonesty, they both lied repeatedly, and show monumental errors of judgment.”

He sure does, Weiner should not even be allowed to run for office.

This guy has serious problems and I'm willing the bet those in NY City could care less. They're reelecting of Bloomberg only shows they want to be ruled instead of led.

Why is the nature of man such that it seems so many politicians(and voters) are the least moral of the species? And why do some locales seem to have far more than their share of these cads?
