What balls! Weiner probing possibility of political run

It looks like Anthony Weiner is testing the waters for a possible run for city comptroller this year.

At least two politically-connected individuals in Manhattan have received calls from a pollster asking about a possible match-up between the former Brooklyn Congressman and Scott Stringer, the Manhattan Borough President who is considered the heavy favorite in the race.

“It was strictly about Scott and Weiner,” said one woman who took the survey on Sunday.

She said the pollster asked if she could back Weiner in light of the infamous sexting scandal that drove him from office in 2011.

When the woman said she was a Stringer supporter, the questions turned negative.

“If you knew he wanted outer borough people to pay a fee to come into Manhattan would that change your mind?” the pollster asked, according to the woman.

“If you knew that he had the support of the corrupt Brooklyn Democratic machine would that change your mind?”

The woman, a political pro, said she just laughed at the mention of the Brooklyn Democratic organization, which hasn’t been a powerful machine for decades.

Weiner is sitting on a warchest of $3.9 million, raised when he was a leading contender for mayor in 2009.

    Democrates are crooks. Why would they care if another crook got in the game.
    The jails are full of Democrates. It is who they are. Why the shock?

    I bet he’d be elected by a wide margin, and then tweet lots of photos of his inaugural balls.

    Considering how many dirtbags get re-elected after criminal convictions and jail time, he will probably get voted back in unfortunately.

    I need to move somewhere warmer and less crazy.

    what is with these professional politicians?

    he already had to resign over self tweeted photos.

    what makes him think continuing in politics is a good idea?

    he obviously has no self control.

    it’s like they can’t make a living any other way?

    and he will get voted in, that is even sadder.

    I read something somewhere bemoaning the fact that Anthony Weiner had no employment prospects because he has only a Poli Sci degree, with no furthering his education in Law School, which is what most who get that worthless degree do.

    I see he hasn’t rectified that, yet.
