  • PROFILE:

    Now known more for his personal rather than public life, Anthony Weiner was an up-and-coming U.S. Representative until an infamous sexting scandal forced him to resign from office. His career in politics began in the New York City Council - for a time he was its youngest member ever - and in 1998 he ran for the U.S. House. He won, and was considered by many to be the front-runner to succeed Michael Bloomberg as Mayor in 2013. He now, however, wallows in the political abyss, the subject of many rumors in New York political circles.
