    (CNN) -- Anthony Weiner thinks Rand Paul is playing it smart. The former Democratic congressman from New York, who resigned in 2011 amid a sexting scandal, offered up some 2016 insight Friday, saying the Kentucky Republican senator is wise to make privacy concerns a big part of his potential presidential platform. "Paul's strategy could put him in a great place in a Republican primary," Weiner wrote in a column for Business Insider. ~snip~ "(Paul's) looking to build a White House bid with his own new age coalition of privacy-concerned, party-non aligned, previously-non voting, SOPA hating, pot tolerant youth," he wrote....

    Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal left his wife Huma Abedin’s role with Hillary Clinton in doubt. But one year later, Abedin's position as Clinton’s personal chief of staff remains intact, as well as her marriage to Weiner. ... As Clinton’s personal chief of staff, Abedin was constantly at her boss’ side as Clinton toured the country promoting her memoir, “Hard Choices,” over the summer. And there she was again last weekend, standing just behind Clinton as the former First Lady worked the rope line at an Iowa steak fry, a visit widely seen as the first concrete public step by Clinton...

    Anthony Weiner, the former Democratic Congressman who gained wide notoriety by tweeting photos of his genitalia is ready to open a new chapter in his life. Spotting what he characterized as “an unfilled niche in the marketplace,” the ex-pol is set to embark upon a restaurant venture in the Queens borough of New York City. “The wiener, or hot dog, is an under appreciated delicacy,” Weiner maintains. “Too often it is relegated to street corner carts where it is hastily prepared, topped with pedestrian condiments, and carelessly scarfed down by the palate-challenged troglodytes who walk our streets.” “At Chez Weiner...

    You’d think former Rep. Anthony Weiner would try to avoid anything with the word “sexting” like the plague. After all, it was a sexting scandal that pushed him out of office in 2011. But recently, Weiner found himself trying to explain why he would favorite a tweet that claimed “Tinder will now be the ultimate sext machine.” It was a tweet by former Slate staffer Matt Yglesias, who is now Vox’s executive editor, and included a link to a piece about a new photo feature in the dating app.

Eighty percent of New York state voters have an unfavorable opinion of Weiner, while only 11% saw him in a positive light. That tops the 79% unfavorable rating held by former New York governor-turned-New York City comptroller candidate Eliot Spitzer after he resigned from the governorship in 2008 over his prostitution scandal.

    You may find that headline confusing because it is. But remember, Bill Clinton was the first black president. Maybe Anthony Weiner can be the second black mayor. Stranger things have happened. And it turns out that there’s nothing a White Hispanic can’t accomplish for the Democratic Party without even meaning to. Repeated polling has found a racial gap in the races for mayor and comptroller: black voters are far more likely than white voters to view Mr. Spitzer and Mr. Weiner favorably, and more likely to say they deserve a second chance. How big a split is it? Spitzer,...

    Anthony Weiner’s campaign fund-raising has virtually dried up since revelations of a sexting relapse rocked his bid for mayor. Weiner received an average of just $1,897 a day in donations since the new sexting scandal erupted July 23, campaign finance records released Friday show. That’s a trickle of the $16,434 he received each day, on average, in the 50 days after launching his run for mayor on May 22. The records also show that Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, collected no money on his behalf since the new sexting allegations emerged, after she collected nearly $150,000 in the first 50...

    For the first time today, since Anthony Weiner began his campaign for mayor of New York, I thought, wow, this guys acts as though he doesn't even want to win, either that or he's severely delusional. The more I think about it, it makes sense. Yes, we could be witnessing a sad case of someone in the beginning stages of mental illness or a good old fashioned megalomaniac in search for more personal power, but I don't really know. I do know Anthony seems to make a daily habit of making people express anger or contempt at him in public....
