Default Weiner eye on mayor bid: sources

The sad part is he'll have plenty of support...

Weiner eye on mayor bid: sources

Quote:
Former Rep. Anthony Weiner is laying the groundwork for a political comeback, possibly as a startling addition to this year’s mayoral race, sources said yesterday.

Political insiders were abuzz at news that Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, had granted a lengthy magazine interview for the first time since his resignation in an embarrassing sexting scandal in 2011.

“The magazine piece is step one of a two-step process for him to run citywide this year,” said one Democratic Party source.

“He’s looking at public advocate and comptroller, but he really thinks he can use this to get back in and run for mayor.”

Weiner issued a terse “no comment” when asked about his plans.

Weiner has $4.3 million left in his campaign account, including $248,710 that would be matched 6-to-1 under the public-financing system.

A second source said Weiner has been contacting former staffers to prepare for his re-entry into politics.

Weiner’s entry into the Democratic primary for mayor would make it more difficult for any of the five candidates now in the race to get at least 40 percent of the vote and avoid a runoff.
How does someone get to resign from elected office due to unethical behavior and KEEP his millions in campaign cash????...

Yes, Because those were jockey shorts. They give much more support than boxers

By resigning and by not being convicted of anything.

This is the first thing you have said in weeks I agree with. I can think of a few things that should be taken out of the congresses hands.

We know what Weiner has in his hands. He would make a fitting replacement for mayor Mike.

Finally! A mayoral candidate with nothing to hide!

Yep, it looks like Anthony Weiner is looking to become Mayor of NYC! The lizard tweeting Anthony isn’t short (pun) on money either, showing up at the starting gate with a 4.8 million campaign war chest. What a difference a couple of years will make. As we all remember, Anthony road his Weiner into digital history back in 2011 when a picture of his crouch found its way into the public arena.

At first, Anthony denied any connection with the appendage, but when it became clear there was no way to lie his way to freedom, he acknowledge ownership of the career damaging dangler. Personally, I find it hard to believe he would attempt this run, given the ample amount of dicks already in Washington. But Weiner is hard on his mission and is determined to make the effort.

Who knows...

If he promises to keep sending unsolicited pics of his pork sword to unsuspecting hotties I'll campaign for him.
