Emily Rooney Says Weiner a Bad Guy

The host of public television's Greater Boston show says that her nephew worked for Congressman Weiner as his press secretary, and that based on what she knows about him, she believes the worst.

Anthony Weiner is the most verbally abusive, disgusting, horrible... the things he says... I cannot say on the air the names and the stuff that he called his staff and my nephew in particular. I totally believe that this guy took that picture of himself and sent that tweet. It would be totally in character...

Rooney is a former news director who is the daughter of Andy Rooney.
