In what could arguably be one of the most embarrassing mayoral campaigns in New York’s history, Anthony Weiner has finally been shown the door. Not only did he come in fifth place, but Sydney Leathers’ sexting partner came in a remarkably distant fifth, with less than 5 percent of the vote.

After a couple weeks of one disaster after the other including, but definitely not limited to, arguing with a Jew in Brooklyn, mocking Jamaican accents, and being the inspiration for Carlos Danger wieners, New Yorkers have finally spoken up and told Weiner exactly what they think of him.

After being defeated in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, Weiner decided to go out with a bang, giving the middle finger to media his car on the way home.

Check back for updates next week when Weiner announces his bid for Presidency.
