So .... the guy is now running for mayor of NYC ... he was even leading in the polls! Then this happened:

<embed style="display:block" src="http://media.mtvnservices.com/mgid:cms:video:thedailyshow.com:428029" width="288" height="247" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="window" allowFullscreen="true" flashvars="autoPlay=false" allowscriptaccess="always" allownetworking="all" bgcolor="#000000"></embed>

And for those who would prefer a more serious take: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/anthony-weiner-carlos-danger-become-focus-of-new-york-mayoral-race/2013/07/25/a130cd92-f535-11e2-9434-60440856fadf_story.html


A gossip Web site revealed this week that New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner’s habit of exchanging sexually obscene communications with young women online continued after his resignation from Congress in 2011, and that he used the colorful pseudonym “Carlos Danger.” These revelations have changed the tenor of the race:

Now his rivals, who had been reluctant to so much as utter Weiner’s name, wanted to talk of little else. They called on him to leave the campaign and questioned his judgment and integrity.

At a debate in the Bronx, one Latino mayoral candidate said Weiner’s use of the amorous pen name Carlos Danger reflected poorly on Hispanics. Another rival called him a distraction from middle-class issues, prompting Weiner to respond that his accuser was “playing to the cameras.” Everyone, including Weiner, cracked up when he was asked if he prefers Facebook or Twitter. The cameras clicked.

Weiner, who over his career has delighted in media coverage, was getting run over by it. The media scrum around him dwarfed those that orbit presidential candidates.

New Yorkers on the train and in pizza places folded over tabloid headlines such as “Meet Carlos Danger.” An excoriating editorial in the New York Times demanded that Weiner “take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City.”

"Carlos Danger" sounds a whole lot more like an action movie protagonist.

Anthony, I think it's high time you changed your last name already.

Well that certainly didn't take long... Carlos Danger is probably the most amazing pseudonym ever though, gotta give him props on coming up with that.

Anthony Weiner's first pet was named Carlos, and he grew up on Danger Street. It's not really that original, guys.

Boy, he really cocked this one up. Now, to say that showing someone your dick online should disqualify you from holding office would be something of a phallusy, so the first time it shouldn't have been such a big deal. Doing it again, though, just shows that your judgement is worth dick.

Gimme a sec and I should be able to continue.

Edit: He shouldn't be surprised at his poll numbers going flaccid after jerking us around like this.

Sounds more like a porn star to me. Which, really, is kinda fitting.

"MY DAUGHTER IS IN LOVE WITH CARLOS DANGER"
Box text: Her father told her to be careful to judge a man by his name. He warned her not to mess around with the Caution boys, or their neighbors, the Troubles, or with Professors Alert and Alarm. But then, one day, she saw him. Carlos Danger. He was standing there, and she just knew he had to be the one; she could feel her nerves tingling in fear. So they met, and they flirted, and before you could say "9-1-1" they were in bed. Contained within are 90 heartpounding minutes of critically hot action that will put you over the edge and back... if you're willing to take the risk. Because who knows, you may wind up tripping and falling over for... CARLOS DANGER.
