After months of speculation and nearly two years after he resigned from Congress because of a sexting scandal - New York's disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner has announced he's running for New York City's mayor.
He announced his candidacy with a two-minute online ad.
"I've made some big mistakes, I know I let a lot of people down, but I've also learned some tough lessons, I'm running for mayor because I've been fighting for the middle class my entire life, and I hope I get a second chance to work for you." Weiner said.
But are voters ready to give Weiner a second chance?

not even a remote shot Quinn is mayor, Weiner will have to find something that actually contributes to society to do for a living something he hasnt done since graduating college.
What Anthony Weiner engaged in during his work time and personal free time leaves a real question as to his judgment, maturity, addiction possibilities, Internet abuse and treatment of his wife. By the way, he was newly married at the time, expecting a new baby and possibly has the best looking wife in Washington. I'd say he has extremely poor and skewed judgment, so why put him into the Mayor's office in the most high profile, and largest city in the world?
