What has Anthony Weiner been up to in the last 24 hours? Well, he released a series of policy proposals as a sequel to his 64 different "Keys To The City," the cleverly named "Even More Keys To The City: 61 Additional Ideas To" blah blah. You'd think he was running for Head Locksmith. Zing! But 61—this is a high number. Isn't there some way we could work in that part of his life that everyone enjoys talking about and no one is sick of? Preferably with profanity? Oh snap, he was heckled!
Weiner's 61 new ideas include some good ones (paid maternity leave for city employees, require beat cops to wear cameras, no city taxes for residents making under $40K, expand CitiBike) and some unlikely ones (stop students' "summer slippage," get more of the control of the MTA from Albany) but it's hard to enumerate ideas of any kind when you got someone dropping no-nonsense, hard core F-bombs in 'ya face!
“You are disgusting! You are an embarrassment of a third-generation native,” said Jane Borock, 35, as she waded into a meet-and-greet with voters in a plaza bordering Atlantic Avenue. “Your little overnight sleepover in public housing. Fuck you! Go back to your little Hamptons house.”
Mr. Weiner, still playfully quizzing a mother and a young girl, tried to calm the woman down. “You’re very passionate. I appreciate your view.”
“I’m passionate? More passionate than you on Twitter. I’m a social media expert. Get someone to handle your shit! You are disgusting. Disgusting,” she railed. Ms. Borock, wielding a camera phone, then turned to the press surrounding her. “And fuck you all for covering …”
“Whoa! Whoa,” said Mr. Weiner, growing angry. “You’ve got little kids here. You’ve got little kids here … just don’t curse.”
“Little kids?! You have NO right to talk about little kids … Talking about little kids? Social media? You wanna see some Twitter action?” she demanded.
It just doesn't get any better than this.
