Rep. Anthony Weiner's new foe, the Internet, reveals 1996 'Cosmo' bachelor spread

There’s a photo making its way around the Internet that Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), probably hoped would disappear forever. That, of course, being the Cosmo Bachelor spread from 1996 that just-so-happened to get up on the web just one day after the troubled politician admitted he sent lewd photographs of himself to women via Twitter.

Of course, there’s no way the Cosmo article — which boasted that Weiner could be “the future President” — is even half as damaging as the scandal that’s plaguing the Congressman, but, really, that doesn’t make it any less amusing/embarrassing in light of recent events, does it? Between the picture, which finds Weiner in a striking Chandler Bing ensemble, and the quotes from the then-single 31-year-old (“I want to be sucked back into the throes of love — isn’t that what everybody really wants?”), it’s almost as if someone handed late night talk show hosts and cable pundits their opening monologue on a silver platter.

Are you rummaging through your old Cosmopolitans to find this as we speak, PopWatchers? Let us know in the comments section below.

    If he was GOP, he’d be sending out pics to boys.

      stop. just stop.

    • Nope

      And he would have resigned already.

      • 3reddogs

        Yeah, right … just like Larry Craig, David Vitter and John Ensign did.

      • Ana

        Ok, there you go rewriting history.

  • Annie

    He looks like he’s playing pocket hockey in that Cosmo picture.

    • 3reddogs

      Well at least he has his clothes on. As I recall, the Republican Senator from Massachusetts (Scott Brown) had absolutely nothing on when he posed for Cosmo in 1982.

        Glen Beck had the best line, he should simply resign for the fact that he thinks he is good looking.

      • Ana

        As if Beck is so good looking himself that he can throw stones at someone else’s looks.

      • Mrs Beck

        Glenn doesn’t purport himself to be good looking just smart!!

      • @Mrs Beck

        That’s even less accurate

  • Ana

    He’s not that smart either.

  • asher

    Who cares? As long as he didn’t break any laws, I think this is between he and his family. But of course the hypocrite morality police have to come out and point fingers, even though at least half of them are probably doing the same thing, or worse! Politics in this country is sickening.
