Mayor Weiner? Former Congressmember reportedly considering a 2013 run


Former Queens Congressmember Anthony Weiner, who resigned last June following a lewd photo scandal, is still considering a run for New York City mayor, the NY Post reported. He has a $4.5 million campaign war chest, and after the 2013 election, the public match for the funds will expire. Because of this deadline, he is seriously thinking about entering the 2013 mayoral race. Weiner may run for public advocate instead, which he likely would have a better chance of winning.

The NY Post also reported that Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is urging him to give a tell-all interview. Abedin beleives it will help her husband to move forward.
