Weiner: I’d Be Mayor ‘If The Internet Didn’t Exist’

Failed New York City mayoral candidate and infamous sexter Anthony Weiner recently told GQ magazine that if the Internet did not exist, he would have been elected mayor. 

“Maybe if the Internet didn’t exist? Like, if I was running in 1955? I’d probably get elected mayor,” Weiner said in an interview published Thursday for the magazine’s November issue.
