Anthony Weiner running for the mayor of New York City and Eliot Spitzer for comptroller -- what a sorry tale for the city ["Into the fray," News, July 9]. Both of these politicians have violated the public trust and now they want to be elected to new offices.

The fact is that the power that goes with elected positions is what made them think they were above the law and could do anything they wanted. At the risk of overstating this situation, would we allow a sex offender to teach or work with children?

These two superegos violated the public trust. Politics is dirty enough without again electing candidates we know cannot be trusted.
