Can Weiner Repair His Brand?

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has a communications crisis on his hands. He tweeted lewd photos to followers and then lied about it to his wife, his family and the press. In his emotional press conference, Weiner admitted to sending the photographs and apologized. Ron Bonjean leads Singer Bonjean Strategies, a communication and crisis management service. Weiner hurt himself, but he also hurt the Democratic party brand, says Bonjean. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called for an investigation of Weiner in order to protect her party. However, did Weiner come clean fast enough to save his career?
