Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota wants Anthony Weiner’s ex-girlfriends to come forward to help convince female voters to think twice before casting their ballot for him.

“I hope [women] will come to the right conclusion after enough women come out and talk about what it was like to be with him and date him and things like that,” Lhota said on “The Andrea Tantaros Show.”

“New York women have to decide for themselves if this is someone who has the character to be mayor,” Lhota added.

Tantaros had called Weiner “arrogant” and “disrespectful” for how he treated Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly in past interviews on her show, The New York Post reports.

“If he’s going to lie and be disrespectful to his own wife, how do voters in New York City believe he’s somehow going to respect their wishes and not act like some bizarro pervy freak?” Tantaros asked Lhota.

“Once they realize what you’ve observed, and they come to understand it, I think that they will see there are viable choices other than Anthony,” Lhota replied.

Weiner did not respond to Lhota’s attack.

“Anthony is too busy talking about the future of the middle class and those struggling to make it to respond to Mr. Lhota’s mud throwing,” campaign spokeswoman Barbara Morgan told the Post.
