Weiner represented Queens and Brooklyn for more than a decade before resigning amid a 2011 scandal over lewd online behavior.
NEW YORK Former U.S. Rep. 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 told The New York Times Magazine in a story posted online Wednesday that "it's now or maybe never for me" but acknowledged that it's a long shot because some people "just don't have room for a second narrative about me."
Weiner said that his political committee spent more than $100,000 on polling and research by Obama's longtime pollster, David Binder, but said he doesn't know when he'll decide on entering the race.

why not? bankrupt and destroy the city for all i care.
...at least the voters have seen what Weiner is trying to slip them.....as opposed to nanny bloomberg....
wiener and bloomturd. 2 dicks in a pod.
Really? Anthony Wiener, in the flesh?
Exactly. It’s a disease that infects all political parties. Bubba, Vitter, Sanford, Weiner...the list is long. They know they can get away with it because of the decay in our culture and the lack of public shame. Just another form of corruption.
He is perfect for the job and has the pictures to prove it.
He only lacks being convicted of pedophilia to cinch NYC.
F NYC the people, not the buildings.
He might be better that DOOMTURD...
Anthony Weiner - he’s shown America he has the junk New York City needs.
Anthony Weiner - Poll Driven.
He’s going to have a tough fight trying to unseat Doomberg who is already about as left as zero.
I wonder if Weiner is up for it?
Bathhouses limited to 8-man rounds. Pronto.
Can Weiner Rise Again?
If there ever was a person whose name reflects his actions perfectly it would be Weiner.
He is arrogant enough to be Bloombutt’s illegitimate son
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Weiner probably said to Bloomy, lets get something straight between the two of us....
Allowing for some potential for personal rehabilitation, I consider the vile Anthony Weiner and how soon after his resignation this is and marvel at his gall.
I do not believe NYC could not elected him. Saying they'd receive "everything they richly deserve" is naive.
Mayor Weiner! Mayor Weiner! Do you have that hard copy????
