Chris Lee. Anthony Weiner. Are we seeing a curious trend in New York politicians?

Asked by josie (22950 points ) June 15th, 2011

Both of these guys like to take their clothes off and send the pictures to people they do not know. Lee took a picture of his bare chest, sent out into the ether, and resigned.
Weiner took a picture of his weiner, and refuses to quit.
Either way, what is it about NY reps and the tendency to expose themselves inappropriately?

The real question is: what is it about NY reps that they keep getting themselves caught? Because I doubt this is isolated to the Empire State.

Unless Howie Long becomes a New York rep.I don’t want to see any more of that trend.

Don’t forget Elliot Spitzer.

I don’t think there is anything special about NY or even politician. They just happened to get caught because someone turned them in . There is simply a percentage of the population that does not think there are consequences to their actions and online postings. “Who’s going to find out?”
What about all the stars who show up daily on porn sites? Will one of them ever run for president?

@worriedguy Not for president, but maybe for governor.
