Congressional Limerick

Forced from the hill while acting like Bill

There once was a congressman named Weiner,

Who had a perverted demeanor.

He was forced from the hill, for acting like Bill.

Now Congress is one Weiner leaner.



American politician Anthony Weiner, former member of the United States House of Representatives from New York City, has been involved in three sexual scandals related to sexting, or sending explicit sexual material by cell phone. The first, dubbed Weinergate, led to his resignation as a congressman in 2011. The second, during his attempt to return to politics as candidate for mayor of New York City, involved three women Weiner admitted having sexted after further explicit pictures were published in July 2013. The third, in 2015 but publicized in 2016, resulted in an announced intended separation between him and his wife, Huma Abedin.
