With many Democratic politicians distancing themselves from Anthony Weiner and Nancy Pelosi calling for an “Ethics Committee investigation” in the wake of his internet dalliance, we have further proof that we need a third party. Compared to most of our electeds, Anthony Weiner has a fairly decent voting record. As a matter of fact, except for his support of certain “free” trade agreements, he stands for traditional Democratic values, in the FDR sense. He puts his his compatriots, including Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, with their lack of anything but verbal support of union issues to shame!
Hey Democrats, if you are more concerned about adverse publicity and what the Republicans are going to say about Anthony Weiner than doing the right thing, many Americans will be looking for a party that is truly democratic, with a small "d". Working Americans need a third party that truly represents their interests, not that of corporate America. Perhaps Anthony Weiner can be a part of that third party if he reconsiders his support of “free” trade agreements.
