Multiple sources have indicated that disgraced former Congressman, Anthony Weiner, is looking to get back into the public spotlight, even mulling a run for New York City mayor.
The sources, reported by the New York Post, indicate Weiner would like to run for Mayor in 2013, before the public match on his $4.5 million war chest expires.
The Post reported the story as only they can – laced with jokes and innuendo.
Anthony Weiner’s not shrinking from elected office.
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.
The cocky pol is also open to the post of public advocate as a backup plan, said sources, who described the Queens Democrat as “desperate” to get back into politics.
Weiner, 47, has even spoken to former staffers about going back to work for him, according to another source.
Experts are indicating that he may stand a better chance of earning a public advocate position, where he could presumably lay low and cleanse his public image of a sexting scandal known as Weinergate, which resulted in his resignation from Congress in June of 2011.
As one of the sources put it, “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.”
In New York, why not?
I urge all of you to consider checking out the memorial website…
The National Bloggers Club, a new non-profit providing a loose association for free market bloggers, has officially announced a grant program for young citizen journalists in honor of Andrew Breitbart’s legacy, the Breitbart Scholarship Fund. The fund has been set up in conjunction with a website, RememberBreitbart.com, dedicated to showcasing Andrew’s fans and showcase his work.
Visitors of the website will be able to donate to the fund, apply for grants and submit their own videos to a library of fans memorializing Breitbart.
Prior to his death, Breitbart attended a National Bloggers Club event, Blog Bash at CPAC. There he was given the “Changing the Narrative” award for his work exposing the Anthony Weiner Twitter scandal. Shortly after, Breitbart had indicated he would join the Board of Directors for the National Bloggers Club.
This wasn’t Breitbart’s first Blog Bash event. He had been a supporter for over 2 years.
“Not in a million years did I ever imagine that we would lose Andrew just weeks after I handed him the only award — from what I’m told — that he would receive recognizing his work. I knew we wanted to do something special to honor this man and make him a legacy, so when I was approached about having the National Bloggers Club ‘do something’ in Andrew’s memory, we jumped.” said National Bloggers Club President Ali A. Akbar.
In the weeks following his passing bloggers and activists have held memorial events across the country including Washington, DC, New York, Michigan and Texas “to honor his legacy and renew the commitment to fight the good fight” according to Tea Party Express Chairman and National Bloggers Club Advisory Board Member Amy Kremer.
Anyone interested in making a donation to the Breitbart Scholarship Fund can go to http://www.RememberBreitbart.com. All grants will be reviewed by a board overseen by Andrew’s friends, former colleagues and other bloggers.
I’ll take, ‘Things We Should Never Have to Visualize’ for $1000, Alex.
