The normally flaccid penal system actually worked. A crooked politician actually got hard time.
Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner didn’t get off. He was sentenced to a 21 month prison term by Federal Judge Denise Cote.
This seems like an appropriate punishment for Weiner; neither too long, nor too limp.
Weiner did not erupt in anger, but was remorseful, rather.
He made a tearful last-minute plea for probation so he can continue his treatment, which includes sessions with Sex Addicts Anonymous.
“If I fail, I know what will happen,” Weiner said. “But with God’s grace I will not.”
Apparently he will receive probation and his future release will be supervised – but probably not by estranged wife Huma Abedin, who was a no-show in court.
Ah well, at least ol’ Carlos Danger won’t need a pseudonym when he get to the cooler.
Next up, maybe he will reveal what is on those computer files marked, “Insurance”.Help Spread the Word by Following Dystopia USA on Social Media. Don't Make Me Feel Lonely!
