Anthony Weiner Returns To Twitter

After almost 18 months of silence, yesterday former Rep. Anthony Weiner returned to the place that ended (for the time being) his political career.
Hurricane Sandy has blown Anthony Weiner back into the political chatter. The former Congressman, who resigned amid a sexting scandal, has returned to Twitter for the first time since an unfortunate crotch tweet forced the end of his political career last June. Weiner today posted a moving YouTube video containing a phone message left by a devastated resident over a montage of scenes from the hard-hit Rockaways, an area he used to represent. It was his first tweet since he accidentally posted a picture of his bulging crotch, which he eventually admitted was intended to be a private message to a young woman.
Some speculate that Weiner may be gearing up to run for NYC mayor in 2013. Prior to the scandal, Weiner was the one person most polls showed would be a strong challenger to City Council Speaker Christine Quinn.
