Rep. Jerrold Nadler: Fellow N.Y. Democrat Anthony Weiner ‘needs serious psychiatric help’
Question of the Day
“I think he should withdraw; I think he needs serious psychiatric help,” Mr. Nadler said at a press conference Wednesday. “He should take care of his own problems and let New York figure its policies and its mayor.”
“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,” Mr. Nadler said. “How can you trust his judgment as a mayor?”
News broke earlier this week that Mr. Weiner disguised himself online under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger” to communicate with a 22-year-old woman last year.
With his wife, Huma Abedin, by his side, Mr. Weiner announced Tuesday that he plans on sticking in the race.
“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” the Big Apple mayoral hopeful said in a statement.
Mr. Weiner admitted that some of the exchanges occurred as late as last August, more than a year after he resigned from Congress amid previous sexting scandals.
