Anthony Weiner

Think before you tweet, especially if you’re a congressman from New York. Anthony Weiner resigned in 2011 after admitting he had published lewd photos of himself via Twitter. The photos were intended for women with whom he had “inappropriate” relationships but had never met in person, he said. Weiner is now a leading candidate to replace Michael Bloomberg (the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent of Bloomberg.com) as mayor of New York City, so his comeback ability is still TBD.
