New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner shouted an expletive at a Jewish voter on Wednesday afternoon after a heated exchange regarding the Democrat’s recent sex scandal.

“Takes one to know one, jackass,” the former congressman yelled with a mouth full of food as he walked out of a popular deli during a campaign stop in the largely Jewish neighborhood of Borough Park, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

“What’s that? What’s that? You wait ‘til I walk out ‘til you saying anything? That’s courage. That’s courage,” Mr. Weiner yells at a man who is wearing a yarmulke.

“You have the nerve to walk around in public and you’re disgusting,” the man says to Mr. Weiner.

“You’re my judge? You’re my judge? What rabbi taught you that?” the Democrat says as he walks back into the deli and closer to the man.

“You’re a bad example for the people,” the man responds. “Your behavior’s deviant. It’s not normal behavior … I’m telling you what you did is disgusting, it’s immoral … And think about your wife.”

“By the way,” Mr. Weiner shoots back. “That is between me and her and my God, not between you. That’s up not up to you.”

A longer video of the altercation released by the Weiner campaign reveals that the man insulted Mr. Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, the New York Daily News reported.

“You’re a real scumbag, Anthony … married to an Arab,” the man is heard saying.
