Embattled New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner is facing a chorus of calls to get out of the race, but vows to soldier on until the September primary.
This in spite of the fact that his poll numbers are down and the departure of his campaign manager over the weekend signaled more cause for alarm.
“At this point, it’s absurd. He is not going to be the next mayor of New York. He is wasting time and space,” Democratic strategist David Axelrod said.
“Americans believe in second chances, but not third chances ... It’s time for him to go away, and let New York have its mayor’s race,” he added.
Axelrod is not the only high-profile Democrat who's seen enough Anthony Weiner nude photos and sexting headlines to last a lifetime at this point.
