What does Representative Weiner's behavior reveal about him?

Representative Anthony Weiner's confession that he exchanged lewd photographs and online messages with as many as six women draws public attention to the largely undefined area of the law related to sexting.

Criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor Paul Callan joins the AM team this morning to explain if Representative Weiner has violated any laws by participating in these scandalous interactions. Callan is joined by clinical psychologist Jeff Gardere, who offers his analysis of Rep. Weiner's behavior and what it reveals about the Congressman.

    It reveals that he is unfit to be in a leadership role. Simple as. It also reveals that CNN will defend anybody for anything if they are a Dumbocrat.

    Apart from moral or ethical considerations, his behavior displays shockingly bad judgement. He has shown himself to be unfit to participate in the leadership of our country.

    Looking at former IMF leader's Sex Scandal, i'm quite convinced Mr. Weiner caused this scandal,indirectly exposed his secret affairs, as a result of pressure from one of his misstresses. I'm not a psychic but when you look at Mr. Weiner's face on camera you can tell he's not at ease. I am sure you will agree with me that many things are still unrevealed. For him to have exposed his secret affairs by lying and later confessing,something is missing in the puzzle. He need thorough investigations.
