The public servant bar is too high for Weiner
I call myself “liberal up to a point,” and Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Eliot Spitzer and now Anthony Weiner have passed it.
These are not mistakes like losing your keys; they are deliberate, self-initiated and repeated acts of doing something bad and getting away with it.
They call into question his judgement, character, honesty, integrity, openness, personal philosophy and ability and willingness to learn from misdeeds, all of which, in a mayor or any public servant, should be absolutely unquestionable.
