Default What if Anthony Weiner stated he were Poly

What do you think would happen if Anthony Weiner came out as Poly and his wife stated she supported him and she were too. I think the whole thing blows over rather quickly an he moves on with his campaign. I do know that the poly lifestyle would benefit from it becoming mainstream news. But I think his campaign would be better off rather than this leaking out and trying to ignore it. What are others thoughts?

I haven't paid any attention to what they've been saying about him in the news, so I don't know.

I'm not sure what poly has to do with tweeting pictures of your weiner...

Was thinking basically the same thing. In a way I think her response did everything but label it, and with them being public figures I can understand the desire to not let their personal lives overshadow the campaign.

He's been tweeting them consistently to the same person without her complaining.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013...after-sexting/

About 20 paragraphs down:
"The woman claims on the blog that she first started talking online with Weiner in July 2012 and it became intense by August 2012, when he offered to find a Chicago condo where they could meet up.
She also alleges that they had phone sex and that they exchanged nude photos of each other."

Shit, sorry. You meant his wife's response. Give me a minute.

Okay, looks like I'm mistaken. I could've sworn the emphasis was on the "It's between us" aspect of things, instead what I'm finding are quotes about forgiveness.

Yes, I meant what about his wife's response suggested they're poly. Hate it when I know I've seen something and can't find it again.
