Wed., 10:24am: Ex-US Rep. Weiner of sexting scandal fame weighing run for NYC mayor

NEW YORK -- Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, who resigned over a sexting scandal in 2011, says he's weighing a run for New York City mayor this year.

The Democrat tells New York Times Magazine ``it's now or maybe never for me.'' But he acknowledges that it's a long shot because some people ``just don't have room for a second narrative about me.''

He says he doesn't know when he'll decide on entering the race, and concedes he'd be an underdog.

Weiner represented Queens and Brooklyn for more than a decade before resigning amid the scandal over his lewd online behavior.

The interview was posted online Wednesday and is scheduled to be published on Sunday.

His wife is Huma Abedein, a longtime aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
