Anthony Weiner is not done running for elective office. Weiner, who has a $4.5 million campaign war chest that can be matched by public funds until the 2013 election, has decided he can still use his staff. He has even spoken to his staff about going back to work for him.
Weiner, who was disgraced by the revelation that he had tweeted a picture of his equipment to a 21-year-old college student, wants to hold the post of New York City mayor, and if the big salami isn’t achievable, run for the post of public advocate.
One source close to Weiner said, “I’ve heard he is seriously thinking about getting into a citywide race in 2013 and would like it to be mayor. In his mind, he’s trying to figure out how to run for mayor.”
