Anthony Weiner finished dead last in the New York City Dem primary for mayor. He got about 5%.
It’s still unclear if Bill de Blasio got enough votes (he needs 40%) to avoid a runoff against Bill Thompson.
And whoremonger Eliot Spitzer lost his primary race for comptroller to Scott Stringer.
This really is the Summer of Love (or at least Lust), people.
As we wait to find out who Eliot Spitzer is shtupping (or we can do this ourselves by process of elimination — I think we can rule out Christine Quinn, Sydney Leathers, Lauren Silverman, Lena Dunham, and Ivanka Trump, for example), former Secretary of State Colin Powell, 76, is denying that he ever had an affair with Romanian diploma Corina Cretu, 47, whom he met about 10 years ago.
Powell’s email got hacked, and there are some extremely personal and friendly exchanges between the two.
Keith Olbermann has been fired from Current TV for not honoring his five-year, $50 million contract. This comes a little over a year after Olbermann left MSNBC under less than happy circumstances.
Eliot (Client #9) Spitzer is replacing him as of tonight, and the show is being re-named “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer” instead of Countdown. Olbermann won’t have a chance to say goodbye.
I’m guessing there will be a lawsuit. Current is owned by Al Gore and Joel Hyatt.
Olbermann is notoriously impossible to work with — he gives divas a bad name.
