Weiner faces off with voter in Brooklyn bakery

Beleaguered New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner got into a war of words Wednesday with a man who lashed out at him for being "married to an Arab," in addition to chastising the former congressman about his well-documented sexting scandal.

The comment is an apparent reference to Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, whose parents are from India and Pakistan.

After the man described Weiner "disgusting," the former congressman shot back by calling him a "jackass."

    The man showed poor judgement in bringing up AW's wife.
    What is he still doing in the race, anyhow?

      More misinformation: 1.) Jewish is a theological concept not a race 2.) Weiner's wife is of Indian/Pakistani descent not a Arab; Only 10% of Muslims in the world are Arab (no disrespect to Arab brothers and sisters). But the most egregious statement by the bigoted Jewish idiot was that his racism toward Arabs is justified because he is a Jew. Once again, that same ol' inferior complex being masked in the superiority wrapper. Sad

      @ Charlie tuna – hate to be the bearer of bad news, but judaism is a religion, and jew is a race. May I refer your attention to “Legacy: A Genetic History of the Jewish People,” by Harry Ostrer, a medical geneticist and professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York which identifies distinctive genetic markers within jews only. Regardless of ethnic orgin, Huma is absolutely associated with al qayda, so very bizarre that a muslim extremist marries a jew. That's a story some journalist should look into. Whoops, journalism is dead in America. Look the other way and ignore it.

    The man is an exception. How many Weiners in your lifetime, have you had to tell "get a grip"?

  8. A curse upon New York

    Charles Schumer, Andrew Cuomo, Eliot Spitzer ... see a common thread here? The vilest humans trodding the earth, and Noi Yackers keep electing more of the same. I hope Wiener wins. Noi Yackers deserve him. The crazy thing is that Noi Yackers think they're enlightened and evolved and the center of the universe. Badness emanates from that cesspool.

      NY is no better or worse than any other large city. Bet you have a few creeps in your little Utopia, too.

    Weiner is a liar. He is even trying to deny that Huma is an Arab.
