Piers Morgan to Christine Quinn: "How do you stop the Weiner?"

Currently leading New York City's mayoral race, on Thursday evening Christine Quinn found herself on "The Grill" where she faced Piers Morgan's most-pressing question:

"Let's move to the big question for you in the mayoral campaign," began the host. "How do you stop the Weiner?"

Attempting to hold back laughter, Quinn responded deftly:

"Well, I think I'm doing okay in that regard, so far, let me tell you!"

Clearly having some fun with the surname of the former U.S. Representative, Morgan pressed:

"You're still ahead of him [Anthony Weiner], but he's creeping up, isn't he?" he asked his guest. "The Weiner's coming! It's not my fault he's called Weiner. That's his name."

Attempting to take the issue seriously, the New York City Council speaker offered her assessment of the upcoming battle for the city's top political spot:

"This race, all joking aside, in my opinion, isn't about who is or isn't in the race, the other candidates. It's about the needs of New Yorkers and making sure the next mayor is somebody who has a real record of experience dealing with those needs: education, housing, job creation, and a vision to keep delivering on those problems."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Quinn goes on to reveal her stance on whether or not "somebody who sent naked pictures of himself over the internet to random women" should be considered a legitimate mayor candidate.

    "Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Quinn goes on to reveal her stance on whether or not "somebody who sent naked pictures of himself over the internet to random women" should be considered a legitimate mayor candidate."" My question is, did the 'weiner' do a good job while in office, and did his 'random' solicitations go to people he truly does not know? Without these two answers we really don't have a way of judging the man's character. With the answers, I think we have a right to ask the 'weiner' to step aside.
