Democratic representative, Anthony Weiner, who was forced to resign after a series of allegations that he had texted inappropriate pictures of himself to various women, might be making his come-back into the world of politics. As soon as reports that Weiner may be running for NYC mayor arose, the Apprentice Star and popular real-estate millionaire, Donald Trump tweeted "Weiner is a sexual pervert & they can never be healed," as reported by the Huffington Post.
Trump quickly provided his opinion to the web world that the former congressman, who sent nude pictures of himself to his female colleagues said that "Weiner can never be mayor," linking his persona to a "sick puppy."
Trump was quick to advice Weiner's wife Abedin Huma, senior aid to Hilary Clinton to "drop him before it happens again," according to the Huffington Post.
Reports that the scandalized New York politician is thinking of running for mayor have surfaced on various outlets including the New York Times, Yahoo News and Huffington Post. The New York Times reports that "according to friends and former staff members," Weiner wants to return to politics and run for mayor.
If Weiner does so, it's not the first time he's running for the position. He first ran in 2005 and then announced his candidacy for 2009, both were obviously unsuccessful.
In January 2011, the scandal that put an end to his career as Democratic Representative surfaced when various women came out of the closet claiming that Weiner had sent them nude pictures of himself.
