Anthony Weiner isn’t happy people mix him up with Paul Ryan. The Democrat and former congressman told Business Insider that being confused for Ryan, the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee, is “the final insult.” Weiner, who resigned from the House in 2011 amid a sexting scandal and then watched his bid for New York City mayor last year become derailed by the same issue. Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, told a Michigan audience that he’s twice been mistaken for Weiner. The Wisconsin lawmaker called it one of those “humbling moments” in his political career.
