Ex-US Rep. Weiner Weighing Run For NYC Mayor
Former congressman Anthony Weiner, who resigned over a sexting scandal in 2011, says he’s weighing a run for New York City mayor this year.
The Democrat tells New York Times Magazine “it’s now or maybe never for me.” But he acknowledges that it’s a long shot because some people “just don’t have room for a second narrative” about him.
He says he doesn’t know when he’ll decide on entering the race, and concedes he’d be an underdog.
Weiner represented Queens and Brooklyn for more than a decade before resigning amid the scandal over his lewd online behavior.
The interview was posted online today and is scheduled to be published on Sunday.
His wife is Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
