NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Democratic mayoral hopeful Bill Thompson has joined the chorus in calling for fellow candidate Anthony Weiner to drop out of the race amid new sexting allegations.
“I think that the revelations from yesterday were stunning as well as disturbing and the one thing about mayoral elections, they are discussions about the future of the city of New York,” Thompson told WCBS 880’s Steve Scott. “I think that there is a consensus that is forming across New York that Anthony Weiner should not run and I think it is important for him to put the people of the city of New York first, and not himself. So yes, I would say he should not run.”READ MORE: Stimulus Check Update: When Could Another Economic Relief Payment Arrive?
