Anthony Weiner Always Wanted to Marry Somebody Smarter Than Himself


Long before Anthony Weiner was a sleazy congressman sending cock shots to his Facebook fans, he was just a wild-eyed city councilman, dreaming of love. “I want to be sucked back into the throes of love — isn’t that what everyone wants?” he told Cosmopolitan in 1996, when he was just 31 years old. Weiner also said he hoped to find someone “smarter than me,” which, based on what we’ve learned about him recently, he did. [Cosmopolitan]
