You may be surprised that Anthony Weiner is seriously contemplating ruuning again and has launched an "exploratory" effort to see if people in NY still consider him a sleazeball
The NY Times Sunday Magazine featured a lengthy article on him and his wife. Weiner granted the interviews no doubt to rehabilitate his image.
What was amazing about the article was that not once did Weiner say that he wanted to get back into politics because of a sense that he needs to be in the process of addressing important issues facing NY and the nation.
It was all about his need to be in the game.
Of course he never expressly admitted that all he really cares about is power and the spotlight, but it, nevertheless, came through loud and clear.
Refreshingly honest if it was intentional, but of course it wasn't.
Who knows exactly how it breaks down, but it sure seems that, at least, 98% of the people who run for political office do so for power and the spotlight.
Sorry to break it to you Advocate but the GOP, clearly, doesn't have a monopoly on sleazeballs.
Would you vote for a sleazeball
Sanford is a weird Romantic whose judgment probably doesn't qualify him for public office in the way we would like but rarely if ever get, but Weiner is a true sleazeball.
