Weiner Messages Fit Pattern of Online Recklessness

"The racy online conversations now convulsing Anthony D. Weiner's campaign for mayor began with an angry Facebook message," the New York Times reports.

"Not long after Mr. Weiner resigned from Congress, the 22-year-old woman reached out to express her disappointment in him. Mr. Weiner responded and, within a week, their exchanges veered from politics to sex, with the pair trading dozens of explicit photographs."

The account "fit his longstanding pattern. In rapid and reckless fashion, he sought to transform informal conversations with female fans into graphically sexually exchanges, frequently laced with lewd language and bawdy images."
