Disgraced Anthony Wiener’s Irish side is revealed

Congressman Anthony Weiner at an ILIR rally in Washington, D.C. in the summer of 2006.

Weiner was also an early supporter of the Irish LGBT inclusive St. Patrick’s Day parade in Queens and scored a 100% rating from the Human Rights Campaign, based on his votes in Congress and his office’s commitment to a sexual orientation non-discrimination employment policy.

Questioned about Weiner’s troubles at a press conference on building inspections on Tuesday, Quinn said, “I feel badly for him and his family. They’re in my thoughts, and I hope that he and his family are able to resolve all of these matters as quickly as possible in a way that works for him and his family. That’s the most important thing.”
