Rep. Anthony Weiner exits politics, but is it forever?
…If Weiner decided to try a political comeback, he would have the means: He has nearly $5 million in campaign money, nearly all of it in a committee formed for his mayoral bid. The seven-term congressman had made it clear he planned to run for mayor of New York in 2013.
Members of the New York congressional delegation expressed sadness over their colleague’s fall, but optimism about his future.
“There’s no doubt in my mind this is not the end of Mr. Weiner,” said Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.), who has known Weiner since he served on the New York City Council. “He’s a very talented individual and he’s done a lot of good things.”
