“His redemption is your redemption.”
That is The Daily Beast’s spot on satirical assessment of Anthony Weiner’s campaign ad for New York City mayor. But it also is the message of both Eliot Spitzer and Mark Sanford, two other adulterers trying to revive their political careers by peddling that their rehabilitation will lead to ours.
Spitzer resigned his post as Governor of New York in 2008 after The New York Times revealed he was a client of a high-end prostitution business.
Sanford is the former Republican South Carolina governor who in 2009 went missing for six days while shacking up with girlfriend and now fiancée Maria Belen Chapur in Argentina and later held a therapy session disguised as a press conference to come clean. He won a special election in May and now represents the 1st Congressional District of South Carolina.
Mr. Weiner is the former New York City congressman caught tweeting photos of his private parts in 2011. The Democrat says he has 64 ideas to make New York City the “middle class capital of the world.” In his commercial he tells potential voters, “I’m running for mayor because I’ve been fighting for the middle class and those struggling to make it my entire life. I hope I get a second chance to work for you.”
He filmed part of the commercial from his $3.3 million middle class home in the city, proving that if even a loser like him can make it big, so can you.
Mr. Spitzer, a Democrat who recently announced his run for New York City comptroller, told The New York Times that he envisions a much broader scope for the office that includes monitoring high school graduation rates and overseeing whether government policies are effective. He told the Times that people keep coming up to him on the street and asking him to run and that the once emasculated position “is ripe for greater and more exciting use of the office’s jurisdiction.” In other words, “Elect me and you will have more power.”
