New York U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner has announced that he will seek treatment (for sex addiction, one can guess) in the wake of a story broke by Conservative Blogger Andrew Brietbart that the central figure in Weinergate has contacted and sent lewd photos to five women – Megan Broussard, Lisa Weiss, Ginger Lee, and Gennette Cordova – and initiated contact with a 17-year old woman, but claims there was no inappropriate contact.
That news tipped Democratic scales against him, and calls for his resignation increased several fold, with Democratic National Committee head Debbie Wasserman Schultz the latest to do so. “It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign,” DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement Saturday, according to CNN.com. “The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable.”
With all of this focus on what seems to be a sex-crazed politician, and the apparent scenario emerging that Weiner may be forced out of Congress, the question is, with his wife Huma Abelin pregnant, what will he do for money?
One idea is to replace actor Jason Statham in a third installment of the Crank movie series, where Statham plays a man who’s heart needs constant adrenaline stimulation, including public sex with Amy Smart. Imagine Congressman Weiner, every bit as fit as Jason Statham, in the third Crank.
It might look something like this:
And, given what’s facing Congressman Weiner from his colleagues, his enemies, and his constituents, acting in a movie like that may be his next line of work.
