Richard Steinberg apparently learned very little from Anthony Weiner's downfall. Steinberg, a Democratic member of the Florida House from Miami Beach, has admitted this morning to sending a number of "inappropriate" text messages to a married female prosecutor, starting with this cringeworthy opener: "Sexxxy mama?"
In all, Steinberg sent more than a dozen messages to the married attorney last fall, the Miami Herald reports. The notes were masked behind a Yahoo! screen name -- "itsjustme24680" -- and started popping up on Fernandez-Karavetsos' phone with creepy regularity.
"Sexxxy mama?" the first one read.
"How do I know you?" replied Fernandez-Karavetsos.
The texter declined to identify himself.
"Leave me alone," she texted back.
"Is that anyway to treat a friend? LOL," the texter replied.
The texts continued, asking about "motherhood," how Fernandez-Karavetsos' was sleeping and other sketchy subjects.
