Disgraced Tweeter Anthony Weiner Considering Race For Mayor Of New York City

It’s official: former congressman Anthony Weiner is considering a bid for mayor of New York.

The lawmaker who left office in disgrace over an explicit tweet almost two years ago announced his intentions in an interview with the the New York Times Magazine.

“I don’t have this burning, overriding desire to go out and run for office,” he said. “It’s not the single animating force in my life as it was for quite some time. But I do recognize, to some degree, it’s now or maybe never for me, in terms of running for something. I’m trying to gauge not only what’s right and what feels comfortable right this second, but I’m also thinking, How will I feel in a year or two years or five years? Is this the time that I should be doing it? And then there’s the other side of the coin, which is . . . am I still the same person who I thought would make a good mayor?”
