Anthony Weiner Considering Run For Mayor
@benk84 suggests the campaign slogan: "Working So F***in' Hard for You."
Weiner, the Post reported, still has a $4.5 million war chest and wants to run for office again soon before the public match on his campaign funds expire after the 2013 election. His preference would be for mayor though is also open to the post of public advocate, the newspaper said. “I’ve heard he is seriously thinking about getting into a citywide race in 2013 and would like it to be mayor,” a source with “ties to Weiner” told the Post. “In his mind, he’s trying to figure out how to run for mayor.”The theory they have is that maybe he can't run for mayor, but he could win a lesser office, like public advocate. He's begun using FaceBook again, so you know he's horny, and thus needs some kind of an erective position. I mean, elective position.

29 You can't stop liberals from doing stupid things like electing grifters. You can try and localize the damage of said stupidity. F*king up some moonbat city is a good job for Weiner, because apparently you can never have too many cautionary tales.

Weiner vs Baldwin for NYC Gauleiter. Excellent, think of the debates. A penis exposing windbag against a verbally abusive screamer. Geez, wind em up before the debate by sending a twitter request to Weiner for a pic (from a 40 year old man pretending to be a 16 year old girl) and with Baldwin just try to take his picture while asking him about yoga class.
It would get the best ratings evah!

81 The big news should be that he is allowed to keep the $4.5M in the first place. They will make Joe Paterno's family give back $Millions, or at least try. Yet, somehow a politician can keep all his money. (Remember, there were allegations Weiner texted an underage girl explicit photos.) And does $4.5M put you in the 1%???
