Anthony Weiner Confronted by Former Teacher | Video

He's Still in the Race! Watch a Voter Confront Anthony Weiner on the Campaign Trail

In the midst of Anthony Weiner's most recent scandal, the politician's sexually charged relationships have prompted questions about his character — and a retired teacher from Staten Island held nothing back when she confronted him in front of the cameras. On Friday, surrounded by reporters, former teacher Peg Brunda asked Weiner how he'd serve as mayor considering his actions would get most city employees fired.

Brunda said, "As a former New York City Department of Education employee with 21 years as a teacher and nine years as an assistant principal, had I conducted myself in the manner in which you conducted yours, my job would've been gone."

An agitated Weiner responded by evading her question while saying that he respected her view, and Brunda added, "I don't quite understand how you would feel you would have the moral authority as the head administrator in the city to oversee employees when your standard of conduct is so much lower than the standard of conduct that's expected of us."

On Saturday, Anthony Weiner's campaign manager resigned, but the candidate is staying in the race for NYC mayor.
