Former New York state Rep. Anthony Weiner has returned to the forum that led to his political downfall in 2011, launching a new Twitter account.

The married Democrat resigned from Congress after tweeting a lewd picture of himself and lying about his account being hacked. He later admitted trading inappropriate messages with several women.

Weiner's first post Monday was decidedly not racy: a link to a 20-page policy statement outlining "64 Ideas to keep New York City the Capital of the Middle Class."

By mid-afternoon, there were about 2,600 people following (at)anthonyweiner.

Weiner's name has emerged this month in a large field of potential candidates for New York City mayor.

A recent Marist College poll showed about half the Democrats surveyed wouldn't even consider voting for him.
