Scofflaw Anthony Weiner Wins Chutzpah Award

How amusing is this? While Democrat blabbermouth rails against UN dignitaries racking up massive amounts of parking tickets (and he does have a point there), it turns out Weiner himself has piled up over $2000 in parking tickets himself over the past four years before coughing up the dough this month.
Rep. Anthony Weiner, the self-appointed scourge of diplomatic scofflaws in Manhattan, has racked up more than $2,000 in unpaid parking tickets around Capitol Hill.

From 2007 to March of this year, Weiner's ticket total was 2,180 for violations near the Capitol and at Reagan Washington National Airport, Roll Call, the Capitol Hill newspaper, reported Tuesday.

A Weiner spokesman said all of the fees have since been paid. Aides to the Queens Democrat claim that part of the problem may have that D.C. sent notices to a bad address.

But Weiner "is pleased to have helped decrease the D.C. budget deficit," the spokesman told Roll Call.
What a dick. Caught redhanded and he tries to make cutesy jokes.
Weiner has raged against foreign dignitaries who ignore New York City's traffic rules, and last year introduced a bill seeking to get $18 million in unpaid parking tickets from 180 nations for the city.

"It's insulting to all New Yorkers that countries like Yemen, Zimbabwe and Iran owe the city millions in unpaid parking tickets," Weiner said.
It's even more insulting for blowhard douchebags like Weiner to ignore the laws while having the power to write them.
