In an appearance on the “The Andrea Tantaros Show” Monday Republican New York City mayoral candidate Joe Lhota said he hopes women who have dated Democratic former Rep. Anthony Weiner will come forward and share their stories before the election in November.
“I hope [women] will come to the right conclusion after enough women come out and talk about what it was like to be with him and date him and things like that,” Lhota said. “New York women have to decide for themselves if this is someone who has the character to be mayor.”
Lhota made his comments on the radio show after Tantaros accused Weiner of being “disrespectful” in interviews with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and of being “disrespectful to his own wife.” Tantaros questioned how voters can now believe Weiner will “respect their wishes and not act like some bizarro pervy freak.”
“Once they realize what you’ve observed,” said Lhota. “And they come to understand it, I think that they will see there are viable choices other than Anthony. “New York women are smart, and I think when they hear more about these stories, they will come to their own conclusions.”
