Weiner Explored Media Prospects Before Mayoral Bid

"Anthony Weiner, whose mayoral bid imploded following revelations that he'd continued sexting long after his resignation from Congress, was already plotting a Plan B more than six months before he lost his bid for Gracie Mansion," Politicker reports.

According to an industry insider, Mr. Weiner wanted to gauge how a failed mayoral bid would impact his prospects of landing a lucrative TV or radio gig.

Said the insider: "He was exploring his options and what they were at the time and what they may be should he run an unsuccessful campaign. It just seemed that exploring his media options became a factor in running for mayor."
