Weiner mocks reporter in Monty Python jibe

Beleaguered New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner appeared to mock Daybreak's Lucy Watson when she asked him a few questions after a campaign event.

Answering her in a fake British accent, Weiner said laughing, "I just have a feeling I've like stepped into a Monty Python bit ... 'I don't know would anything stop me?' Now is a rock going to fall on my head?"

In the latest of a series of gaffes, he then offered, "Is there anything else I can do for ITV? Do you want me to do the weather or something?"

Weiner's poll lead has evaporated following revelations that he continued to exchange sexually explicit messages online after he resigned from Congress in 2011.
