Esther on Weiner

Rep. Weiner (D-NY) officially announced his resignation today in what is normally a lunchroom at the National Council of Jewish Women building in Brooklyn. Milling around were various seniors taking in the spectacle. So TPM Reporter Eric Lach, who was there on the scene, spoke to Esther, 92, who called Weiner’s demise “a shame.”

“People get away with worse,” said Esther, who declined to provide her last name. “Everybody has hangups.”
