In early 2007 he became a registered Republican in Washington, D.C. Later he took the writing job on The Washington Post website which focused on aspects of the conservative movement. His work got praised and later he was hired to add a voice to the paper's political coverage. While working at The Washington Post his one of the tweet where he called same-sex marriage "bigots" got criticized which let him lose his post and he was fired in 2010. Later he apologized and joined Bloomberg Politics. Within a less than a year he was re-hired by The Washington Post.
It is the testament that shows David Weigel’s marketability as far as journalism is concerned. Though notorious at creating controversies like the one on gay marriages David is a much sought after blogger and journalist who is taken seriously by major media outlets in the US like Slate and Bloomberg Politics and of course The Washington Post.
He covers politics for a living, and thousands of readers and fans follow his opinion section and the blogs in the U.S and worldwide. Surprisingly, he had moved to England when he was just around 17 years of age, and not surprisingly, came back to the U.S.A, his birthplace in 2000.
David Weigel’s: Married?
When it comes to his personal life he is very secretive about it and he has not mentioned he is married or have a wife. Once on 10 April 2013 he tweeted saying he is married to Tim Johnson and talked about gay but other than that he has not said anything. He even said he is not married and looking through his post he has never been linked with any girl.

As much success as he might have in political blogosphere his romantic life like dating seems to take curves, bends and turns sometimes. David does have some break-ups or had one in the recent past because he has been spending a lot of time viewing the movies, or reviewing them to be precise. So much so that he went on to create a long list of movies that he has written reviews about if we care to read. People understand posting photos of hugging girlfriends takes up precious time when your time is weighed in gold; and at this point, it is just hard to see what his girlfriend looks like thought it is not hard to see what his favorite movies are.
