Anthony Weiner's entry into the mayoral race continues grabbing headlines. A mass of reporters trailed him around the city yesterday. The campaign will be one lacking institutional support. Gov. Cuomo "joked" that it would be a "shame" if he were elected. Weiner's wife - a Clinton operative - has been a main architect of the campaign. Since he left office, he didn't have to release financial disclosure forms like most of his Democratic competitors. Some have speculated that the midnight leak of his announcement was meant to keep puns off the front pages.
