Carlos Danger Got Two Votes For New York City Mayor

The official New York City Democratic mayoral primary vote count is in. And two people wrote in Anthony Weiner's alter-ego.

According to the New York City Board of Elections, two write-in votes for mayor went to "Carlos Danger," the online name that Anthony Weiner used for explicitly sexual conversations with a woman after he had resigned from Congress.

For some context: Bill Clinton also received two write-in votes for mayor. Former New York City Mayor David Dinkins received one vote. So did Noam Chomsky and former mayor and airport-namesake Fiorello Henry LaGuardia, who has been dead since 1947.

 

Beating out all those write-ins though? The various spellings for New York City's current mayor: Michael Bloomberg. He wound up with 5 write-in votes for the Democratic nomination for mayor.

Bill de Blasio, the winner of the primary, wound up with an official, run-off proof total of 282,344 votes.
