Things Anthony Weiner Didn’t Do
by james bezerra
Want to know
what irks me so
about this Anthony Weiner fiasco?
break a law,
have sex with anyone,
commit a felony,
lie before a jury.
Didn’t misappropriate campaign funds,
father illegitimate children,
try to sell a Senate seat.
Didn’t abandon the state where he was governor during a budget crisis and to fly Argentine to fuck someone other than his wife.
He didn’t screw the wife of his chief of staff and then try to get his parents to pay hush money.
He didn’t molest a page or
get arrested soliciting sex.
Didn’t get caught on a call girl’s resume.
Didn’t swap arms for hostages.
Didn’t mislead a nation into invading some other nation under completely false pretenses.
Didn’t authorize torture.
Didn’t do any of those things.
Sure, he acted like an idiot,
and his wife should divorce him for it,
but he was, by all accounts, a good Congressman
and there really aren’t many of them.
