VIDEO: Anthony Weiner delivers monologue

Anthony Weiner’s campaign sent out an email blast to supporters on Friday, highlighting a video clip from an event in City Island on Tuesday.

The clip shows the candidate delivering a lengthy answer to a voter inquiring after what would make him decide to quit the race.

“When do you say enough is enough?” the voter asked.

Weiner repeated his mantra that he will leave that decision to voters, but continued on to make a few thinly veiled digs at his opponents.

“I did not, for example, come to the people in this room and say I am going to embezzle money or I am going to turn over your right to have a vote for a third term,” he said. These not-so-subtle digs at the corruption investigation into John Liu’s campaign and Christine Quinn’s enabling of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s third term, something that has led to an “Anybody But Quinn” movement, were met with applause.

“These are things in my personal background, my personal life, that became very public,” Weiner continued. “That’s the price I pay for being a public official. I don’t wish that on any of you.”

A little over a minute into his answer, after a series of statements beginning with “If you believe,” the questioning voter attempted to interject, and Weiner cut him off, holding a finger up.

“Let me finish the answer,” Weiner said.

“You’re exactly right,” Weiner said, possibly responding to the voter’s inaudible interjection, and glancing warningly at a third party shushing the questioner. “I violated the trust of my wife. That was wrong.”

Weiner continued to insist he is not going to quit, and got some applause again for digs at Quinn’s support for Bloomberg’s third term. He continued on for another three minutes or so, keeping at his message to allow the voters to decide whether or not he can be mayor.

“Don’t deny these people the right to vote for me,” Weiner said, gesturing into the crowd.
