We’ll opt for never, thank you very much. Granted, as to being Mayor of New York City, could he be any more overbearing or obnoxious than the nanny-state nightmare currently in office?
Disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner is considering a run for mayor — and says a return to politics may be “now or never,” according to a new report.
In a lengthy interview that ranged from the pervy pol’s infamous tweets that wrecked his career to his future prospects, Weiner said he wants “a second chance” and admitted time may be running out for a political comeback.
“It’s now or maybe never for me, in terms of running for something,” Weiner said in a New York Times magazine article published online this morning.
“I’m trying to gauge not only what’s right and what feels comfortable right this second, but I’m also thinking, How will I feel in a year or two years or five years? Is this the time that I should be doing it? And then there’s the other side of the coin, which is . . . am I still the same person who I thought would make a good mayor?”
The comments are sure to fuel speculation that Weiner is planning on reviving his career with a run for a citywide office. The Post reported last month that the disgraced former pol spent $106,500 on two polls, apparently to test the possibility of staging what would be a stunning political comeback.
Having never held a private-sector job it’s quite apparent he has no other redeeming qualities or skills outside of living off the taxpayer. We assume his wife is all for this just to get his sorry ass out of the house.
