Anthony Weiner Says He Won't See Documentary on His Sexting Scandal: 'I Know How it Ends and it Wasn't Pretty"
Anthony Weiner revealed he hasn't seen the film about his 2013 mayoral campaign on The Bernie and Sid Show
Anthony Weiner allowed cameras to follow him as he ran for the mayor of New York City, but he hasn’t seen the resulting film – and doesn’t want to.
“I was there, dude,” Weiner told hosts Sid Rosenberg and Bernie McGuirk on Tuesday’s episode of 77ABC Radio’s The Bernie and Sid Show. “I know how it ends, and it wasn’t pretty.”
The documentary Weiner captures the fall-out when the candidate accidentally shared an explicit picture of himself, meant for a woman with whom he’d communicated on Twitter. Instead of calling off his campaign for mayor of N.Y.C. to repair his relationship with his wife Huma Abedin and young son, Weiner pressed forward with the campaign.
Cameras continue to roll even when Leathers, the woman with whom he’s exchanged numerous explicit phone calls, stalks his campaign office and shows up outside his election night party, where his wife is also expected.
Although Weiner received less than 5 percent of the vote in the mayoral primary, Weiner declared on The Bernie and Sid Show that he would have been a good fit for the job.
“I would be a great mayor,” he said, but he admits he has a slim shot of ever getting the office.
When pressed on whether he would ever seek office again, Weiner says: “If I’m drafted and didn’t have to put myself in front of the voters.”
“I had my chance.”
Weiner hit theaters on May 20 and is expected to premiere on Showtime in October.
