Weiner and Kirsten Powers, a Daily Beast and Fox News contributor, dated for about three months in 2002. Powers describes Weiner as "very sweet, very funny" and "very charming." "He was self-deprecating about everything," Powers said. Powers and Weiner met at a Manhattan dive bar and he called her the next day, she said. Weiner ended the relationship, according to Powers. "I think he's the only guy who has ever dumped me!" she said. But Powers says she thinks "he probably dumped a lot of girls. I don't think it was that big a deal." Despite the breakup, the two remained friends through the years. Although at first Powers said she still supported the congressman, she wrote exclusively in The Daily Beast that Weiner must resign. "But even if I could see past the lying and extreme narcissism that is noteworthy even by Washington standards, there is the issue of his attitude toward women," she wrote.
