Sonia Ossorio, president of the National Organization For Women NYC, has responded to today's revelations of another sexting incident involving mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner by calling him "a distraction" and urging him to exit the race. NOW joins a chorus of voices calling for Weiner to withdraw. Here is Ossorio's statement:
As if we didn't already have enough evidence of Anthony Weiner's utter lack of judgment, impulse control and honesty, these latest revelations show the degree to which his candidacy distracts us from the important business of choosing the next leader of New York City. He is clearly and compellingly unfit for public office and the sooner comes to this realization, the better for the people of New York.
