The rumors are true. Former Congressman Anthony Weiner is seeking public office again. He wants to be the New York City Mayor. He announced his candidacy Wednesday (today) in a video on his campaign website.
Weiner said he's running because he's been fighting for the middle class and those struggling to make it his entire life, and he hopes to get a second chance.
Weiner resigned from Congress nearly two years ago after a "sexting" scandal. He also ran for mayor in 2005.
