Anthony Weiner Plotting a Comeback: Report

Could Anthony Weiner be on the comeback trail?

The disgraced ex-congressman is reportedly eying a return to politics and is thinking about giving a tell-all interview.

Nearly a year after his career blew up in a scandal over a barrage of inappropriate text messages to women, sources close to Weiner told the New York Post that he still hasn’t given up on his dream of running for New York City mayor in 2013.

His wife, former State Department official Huma Abedin, is pushing for Weiner to do a sit-down interview with a hand-picked TV reporter in a bid to put the scandal behind him once and for all, the paper said.

The scandal erupted as Abedin became pregnant. She gave birth to the couple’s first child, Jordan Zain Weiner, last December.

Weiner, a Queens Democrat, was one of the nation’s top young Jewish lawmakers when the scandal struck.
