Kirsten Powers: I Couldn’t Stay Silent On Weiner’s ‘Sociopathic’ And ‘Misogynistic’ Behavior

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers spoke out about her past relationship with Congressman Anthony Weiner with Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher and how she believed his communications with various women demonstrated misogynistic behavior. [Yesterday] she appeared on 'Reliable Sources' and told Howard Kurtz she couldn’t stay silent on his behavior just because Weiner was a former friend.

Powers admitted she was shocked to learn Weiner had lied to her and felt sorry for him as she witnessed his life fall apart. However, her opinion started to shift towards disgust with his behavior after she remembered the denials he made to various interviewers and read the contents of the various text messages he sent. Powers concluded such behavior was “sociopathic” and that Weiner truly needed help.
