Weiner's district could get cut in redistricting, sources say

WASHINGTON (CNN) - It is looking more likely that Rep. Anthony Weiner, embroiled in a sexting scandal, could lose his 9th congressional district as part of a redistricting deal, multiple New York Democratic sources told CNN on Wednesday.

New York will lose two seats when Congress gets reconfigured to reflect population shifts recorded in the 2010 national census. The state's redistricting will be decided by the state legislature in Albany, the capital, with the expected result being an overhaul that would cut a Republican seat upstate and a Democratic seat downstate.

    How tragic... Weiner gets hacked, then whacked! And right at the pinncle of his popularity with young women on the internet. But fear not, he has a bright future as an X-rated Jewish porn star. I'm sure movie deals are already in the works.

    Of course it has nothing to do with weiner but the rethugs/tea baggers want to make sure that they get more votes per district.
    Speaking of nazism . . . . . . .

    We as a society love to see people down. Some people that are criticizing are doing worse than Weiner has done. yes he did wrong, but he apologized. Let those who have NEVER sinned, cast the first stone....................................THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT!

    The ultimate measure of a
    man is not where he stands
    in moments of comfort and convenience
    but where he stand in times of challenge
    and controversy.

    Wiener is unelectable in every good part of America but in New York all of this has actually just gained him more support. He has lied and showed that he is a selfish, mean person with not an ounce of integrity. What Democrat couldn't completely identify with him.

    Come check out Jersey Shore land. You need to drive on the roads to fully understand who Democrats are. I just suggest that if you have a family that you take out a life insurance policy before entering these roads up here full of Democrats.

    You simply cannot find a single Conservative anywhere in America who is as dangerous with a gun as most Democrats are with an automobile.
