Could Anthony Weiner Make a Political Comeback?
We all remember the racy Twitter scandal that cost Anthony Weiner his Congressional seat. Well, now there are reports that Weiner is thinking about making a comeback, mulling a run for New York City mayor or public advocate next year. So, would New York voters give Weiner a second chance?
Presidential historian Nick Ragone said that for now the scandal is too new,
but that down the line Weiner might be able to make a comeback. “If you look at the Eliot Spitzer model, Spitzer gave it about a year and a half for the ick factor to go away. Then, he quietly began opining on issues he was comfortable with, like SEC regulations.”
