Former Congressman Anthony Weiner, whose career as a lawmaker ended in a scandal involving texts and emails to with women other than his wife, is mulling a run for New York City mayor, the New York Post reports.
Weiner resigned from Congress in June of 2011 after an inappropriate tweet he accidentally sent out broadly exposed his activities, and it became clear that he had sent a number of other texts and messages to different women.
But the Post reports that, after a year of laying low, he's considering reviving his political career, even contacting former staffers to see if they might be willing to return to work for him. He also reportedly has about $4.5 million in a campaign war chest.
