Conan O’Brien Takes on Weiner, Filner Sex Scandals

Filner got a point for allegedly sexually harassing at least eight women who have publicly come forward, while only two women said they have sexted with Weiner.

Conan O’Brien took on sex scandals on both coasts Tuesday with a bit on who was more "pervy," New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner or San Diego Mayor Bob Filner.

O’Brien said he decided on an "East Coast/West Coast Municipal Government Perv-Off" because Filner is a “much bigger creep,” but Weiner is getting more attention as a result of “East Coast media bias.”

The funnyman gave west coaster Filner a point for his alleged "headlocks" of women because it was physical contact, as opposed to Weiner's confessed virtual contact through text messaging.

Filner got another point for allegedly sexually harassing at least eight women who have publicly come forward, while only two women said they have sexted with Weiner.

Weiner scored a point for his name.

O'Brien also compared Weiner's now infamous photo from below the waist, against Filner's smiling photograph found on City Hall's website. The comedian awarded the point to Filner and then declared, "West coast wins!"
