State Assemblyman David Weprin says he will tell his position on Obama after his election. it looks like Queens is about to get another weener for a representitive.
The Democratic candidate seeking to fill the congressional seat vacated by randy ex-Rep Anthony Weiner distanced himself from President Obama today — by refusing to say whether he backed the president’s re-election.
“I’m running myself right now. On Sept. 14, I’ll be happy to address the president’s election,” State Assemblyman David Weprin said following a press conference at Queens Borough Hall, where he was endorsed by a bevy of female elected leaders.
The special election to replace Weiner — who resigned in disgrace following a sexting scandal — will be held on Sept. 13.
“Don’t read anything into it,” Weprin insisted of his refusal to give fellow Democrat Obama a thumbs up.
Bob Turner, who challenged Weiner last year, is the Republican candidate.
