I live in New York where the corrupt (Rangel) and depraved (Weiner) rise. If you think Weiner can't get elected, you have never lived in this one party town. The Democrat machine here is second to Chicago.
Of course this pig would return to the trough. Donald Trump, your public awaits you.
Anthony Weiner’s not shrinking from elected office. (NY POST)
The disgraced former congressman — who’s sitting on a $4.5 million campaign war chest — is mulling a bid for citywide office next year and “seriously considering” a mayoral run, multiple sources told The Post.
Weiner, 47, has even spoken to former staffers about going back to work for him, according to another source.
And he wants to run soon because the public match on his campaign funds are due to expire after the 2013 election.
“I’ve heard he is seriously thinking about getting into a citywide race in 2013 and would like it to be mayor,” said a source with ties to Weiner. “In his mind, he’s trying to figure out how to run for mayor.”
He’s reached out to politicos to “talk about the landscape,” said a former staffer.
The buzz in political circles is that the sext-happy Weiner has a better shot at public advocate — a $165,000-a-year job viewed as a “cleansing” post where he could put his character issues further behind him as he prepped for a 2017 mayoral run.
“The general feeling is that you can’t text pictures of your penis to a girl, then lie about it, then get kicked out of the House and then run for mayor right after,” said a political consultant. “But people believe there is a way for him to run for a lesser office.”
Potential candidates for public advocate are state Sen. Daniel Squadron, City Council member Letitia James and Reshma Saujani, currently a deputy in the Public Advocate’s Office — none of whom has Weiner’s citywide name recognition or his deep campaign coffers.
The blustery pol has kept a low profile since resigning from Congress in June 2011, after he tweeted a picture of his bulging crotch to a 21-year-old college student and then falsely claimed his account had been hacked.
