Guess who’s back, you lucky people? Well, sort of. He’s definitely pumped up and ready to dive in, but…
Disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner spent $106,500 this month on two polls, apparently to test the possibility of staging what would be a stunning political comeback, according to campaign filings yesterday.
“When you spend $50,000 on a poll, that’s the real thing,” said one political insider. “You’re getting everything you can find out from voters. This guy spent a hundred grand.”
Since shelling out the money on March 4 and 5 to San Francisco-based David Binder Research, Weiner has made no public move to enter the race for either mayor or comptroller, two offices mentioned in his polls…
Public polls show voters still view him negatively, with just months to go before petitioning starts for this year’s city elections.
That’s too bad. Say what you want about Anthony Weiner, but if he became mayor of New York, at least he wouldn’t go after soda companies. Everybody knows how much he likes to show off his Big Red.
P.S. “Weiner is still fuming over his downfall, and he blames Nancy Pelosi.” She was the one holding the camera?
