Weiner Hints He May Be Considering Another Political Run

Scandal-scarred ex-Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner says he may just give politics another go-around.

Writing on a Facebook page still carrying the banner "Weiner For Mayor," New York's former representative asked — and answered, in a veiled way — "What's next?"

"I'll keep you posted on my plans. But I hope we keep the band together," wrote Weiner, whose mayoral run collapsed last summer when the married candidate confessed his online sexting didn't end with the congressional resignation that was forced by the very same online behavior.

"You have been an amazing resource and the network we have all become part of has helped lead the debate on national health care, the need for a smarter and more compassionate approach to the growing pockets of need in our nation, and we all have sought to make the argument that too often we progressives come to knife fights carrying library books," he wrote.

Weiner — whose latest lewd online foray included use of the cringe-worthy handle "Carlos Danger" — finished fifth in the Democratic mayoral primary, with less than 5 percent of the vote.

Meanwhile, his wife, Huma Abedin, returned to her job as a top adviser to Hillary Clinton.

The disgraced former politician also writes about his regret — and offered another round of apologies to supporters.

"I look forward to a better 2014," he wrote, saying he wanted "to take stock a bit of 2013."

"It certainly didn't go as I had hoped. I continue to be deeply sorry that my personal mistakes undermined an amazing campaign that included too many amazing staffers to mention and hundreds of volunteers and many of you who kept active from afar with ideas, contributions and encouraging notes."

"...Our team has to be a font of ideas and debate," he said of fellow Democrats. "I tried to run my campaign on this theme and the response was amazing. (Who knows, maybe I have a third book of ideas in me!)"
