Anthony Weiner’s not shrinking from elected office.
The disgraced former congressman — who’s sitting on a $4.5 million campaign war chest — is mulling a bid for citywide office next year and “seriously considering” a mayoral run, multiple sources told The Post.
The cocky pol is also open to the post of public advocate as a backup plan, said sources, who described the Queens Democrat as “desperate” to get back into politics.
(See what they did there?)
And he’s getting back online on Facebook:
I know this page has been dry for a while . . .
Can Twitter be far behind?
If this gets serious, I have a few questions the press might want to ask Mr. Weiner. Starting with:
- Why did Friends of Weiner pay almost $40,000 in 2011 to “T&M Protective Services” — a company hired by Weiner while he was in “spin mode” regarding whether he was hacked?
- More specifically: why did Friends of Weiner pay $29,832.00 to “T&M Protective Services” on September 1, 2011, and then pay an additional $13,290.00 to the very same firm on December 30, 2011?
- Why did Anthony Weiner use a phrase (“cape and tights shit”) with a high school girl, when he also used that same phrase as a grooming line with an adult woman he talked dirty to online?
- Why did that girl initially tell the press she had received two direct messages from Weiner, but then tell the press she had received five? How many DMs did Anthony Weiner send to this girl? More than five?
That’s for starters.
