He's Anthony Weiner, Democratic Representative from New York.
If you watch any of the political shows on msnbc or CNN, you're familiar with Mr. Weiner. He is a smart, articulate, and fearless Democrat who stands his ground unfailingly. A few days ago, he wouldn't take it anymore from the obstructionist Regressives in Congress. The "party of no" actually insisted on voting against a popular bill that would take care of Ground Zero (9/11) rescue workers who are suffering from related illnesses. Apparently Regressives can't even approve a bill to help 9/11 rescue workers without politicizing it. Some Regressives called it "a giveaway to New York." Others flippantly dismissed it by saying "people get killed every day."
