Times profile devastates Anthony Weiner

If you act like a jerk in front of enough people, eventually it becomes known

Anthony Weiner, whose once-promising congressional career came undone over a tawdry sexting scandal and who is now attempting to become mayor of New York, is the subject of a long and breathtakingly candid profile on the front page of today’s New York Times.

Although few MinnPost readers will be voting in the New York mayor’s race, the profile is a great read and a great piece of reporting. If you act like a jerk to enough of members of your staff, it should eventually lead to a piece like this appearing, but often does not.
