A female writer for CNN says Congress shouldn't force Anthony Weiner to resign -- even as the latest graphic images from the embattled congressman's Blackberry hit the Internet this weekend.

CNN contributor Anne-Marie Slaughter, who teaches politics at Princeton University, wrote that men like Weiner should be excused for their bad behavior because the job of being a public servant is a thankless, low paying one.

She added that these representatives, who are "willing to give themselves up to the public" are "competitive, driven, extroverted and high risk takers" with "high testosterone."

Ms. Slaughter argues that the downside of all that drive and testosterone is a scandal or two that we should all be willing to accept without regret.

Slaughter writes that we should look the other way in Weiner's case because his character flaws, "if properly channeled" are "the sources of the kind of bold, decisive, even daring action that this country needs from its leaders."

I'm not making any of this up.

Last week CNN featured an article by a writer who argued that society shouldn't be so quick to bash Weiner's narcissistic sexting because we're ALL sexually deviant in one way or another.

On Saturday, Weiner announced he was taking a leave of absence "to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person." The next day, TMZ published more self-aggrandizing photos taken by the troubled Weiner in the locker room of the House Members Gym in the basement of the Rayburn House Office Building.

Weiner had assured his constituents that he didn't use Congress facilities or equipment to text nude pictures of himself to six women on the Internet.

    i wish this uber unsexy ass pale man and his weiner would go the fugg away already... :coffee:

  • xamaycan

    I mean...he is a man and is human just like the rest of us...should he lose his job over it? Mmmm, not really, if it doesnt affect his job performance. Im sure plenty people do the same thing, they just arent in the public eye.

  • xamaycan

    @ His nice eyebrows ma! You get them waxed or threaded?

  • KDub

    I agree. He should not resign. Did President Clinton resign? Or heck I can take it way back...did President Kennedy resign...or I can take it back even further...did President Warren Harding resign?

    @ xamaycan Let me assure you that most people are not sexually deviant. Despite the lies you may have heard: I have never sent nude pics of myself to anyone, at any time, ever! :coffee:

  • StillASassyOne

    I don't care if he was sending dikk pics of himself to random sack chasers on the web. He wasn't sexting animals, children or old geriatrics so...ehhh.

    If he can get the job done, let him do it and leave his "look at my dikk" proclivites alone!

    I know Ahnold for one is GLAD this ish popped off. We have not heard one WORD about him since Weiner hit the scene.

  • xamaycan

    @ RIght! I can give 2 sh!ts what he does with his weiner...his wife is the only one who should care.

  • BigCityGirl

    His actions are unacceptable period! I am not a New Yorker...so I have no loyalty to him at all. He did not get voted in to PLAY on social networks and it appears that a lot of his time was not CHANNELED properly for a representative. He needs to resign so we can move on to things that are really important. Especially with the election year coming up...Give it up...stop being a Weiner...LOL

  • Eb

    He needs some classes on how to take sexting picks

  • Feline Feminine

    @Sandra,

    I have never sent nude pics of myself to anyone, at any time, ever!
    ___

    Same here...it's never been something I find exciting or even cute. I don't even send stuff like this to my husband...reason being is that you truly NEVER know who can get ahold of those pictures. Pictures taken on your phone, depending on your provider will automatically be available on the provider's website when you log in, that's too much risk!

  • xamaycan

    Oh hey Sandy! Howes your coffee?...Well I have sent special pics to special individuals but obvisouly this fool doesnt have proper sexting etiqute (sp?). You never show your face, thats just common sense. And I know plenty people who do it, hence why so many public figures have gotten put out there doing it, so it exits more than you think you know Sandy. Trust!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLYbDg242EY&safety_mode=true&persist_safety_mode=1 His_Mommy623

    @Xamaycan, thank you! I do my brows myself ma'am...I have been doing them since I was about 16ish..

  • KDub

    What alot of folks don't know but us North Carolinian's know...John Edwards had been cheating on Elizabeth since I was a kid (the 80's)! He got elected here ANYWAY. The point is most folks already KNOW politicians are less than savory and their marriages most times are for show/political reasons anyhow. Doesn't make it any less hurtful to these wives I'm sure...but MOST of them know what they are getting into when they say "I do"...

    One more to add to my list...did FDR resign?

  • StillASassyOne

    Uhhh.....I just got pics taken of me last night with alcoholic whipped cream swizzled on all my no-no spots....

    Is that bad? :ashamed:

    care to share those pics :coffee:

    UNLESS
    you have certain identifiable tattoos

  • xamaycan

    LOL@ Sassy! Haha post pics;-)

  • BigCityGirl

    I have been on this earth a long time..been married, divorced, in committed relationships the whole deal...AND have never posed NUDE or HALF NUDE, never did a SEX TAPE, or took any pictures that I would not mind the world seeing. And I am under the radar...This guy... a PUBLIC FIGURE decides that he wants to start sex ting all over the country AND had no concern for his wife, family, job, constituents..he needs help and NOT on the taxpayers dime...If his wife stays with him...I hope she knows she has a problem on her hands. For me...this would be a serious sign...and divorce would be imminent!

  • xamaycan

    @ Lala...I sure dont LOL. those are meant for the Mr. only.

  • vjackson

    I don't think sexting photos of yourself to someone that wants them is deviant in any way. But it was stupid of him to do so because of who he is. If he was a normal sexter like sooo many people are these days, no one would care. Personally as long as Weiner wasn't one those hypocrites on a moral soapbox, telling others how to live their lives, not to have abortions, not to be gay, not to cheat, family values, blahblah...his private sex or sexting life is none of my concern...as long as he's breaking no laws and is doing his jobs. This should be between him and his wife, but we live in a hyprocritic, sensantionalistic world. I would love to see the phone and computer of every person asking for Weiner's resignation.

  • xamaycan

    @BigCity...exactly! This issue is for his wife to deal with only. Like I stated as long as it doesnt affect his job performance (and of course using us taxpayers money) then who friggin cares if he wants to send his peen pics all over the world.

  • iscream

    He should not resign. If every man or woman who cheated on their spouse job was put on the line because of it there would be a lot of unemployed people in this world.

    I just love these media outlets who are shoving this down our throats with their opinions. Most of them pointing the finger at him probably just got done digging three more fingers out their own side chick.

    with a little bit of :snort: and :blunt: on the side. #noroomtojudge

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco aka Hippie

    This women is stupid with her reasoning for his bad behavior but I don't think he should resign or have to over them pics - who effn cares and Sandra really now - sending nudes pics is a sexy thing to do in relationships :shrugs:

  • xamaycan

    @vjackson, PREACH. People love to judge others for thier personal choices but I gaurantee you, if we looked at the computers and phones of these judgers you would be surprised what you find. SMH.

    People act like because this man is an elected official he can't have any downtime. So he sent a picture in his boxers that had a small bulge. We didn't see any penis, just a bulge. Move on and let's tackle what's important. This is a matter between him and his wife.
