Don't Call it a Comeback
That was fast.
Several hours after the New York Post published a report in which former Republican Congressman Vito Fossella claimed “significant people” had asked him to run again for his old seat–even though an incumbent member of his party, Michael Grimm, currently holds it–the Grimm campaign is out with a fiery response.
At a press conference this morning announcing the groundbreaking of the Sugar Hill Affordable Housing Development on 155th Street, Mayor Michael Bloomberg discussed the possibility scandalized former congressman Anthony Weiner might be planning a political comeback.
Mayor Bloomberg first mentioned Mr. Weiner, who resigned last June after he was caught sending illicit Twitter messages to several women, when a reporter asked him about a situation involving an ex-Vietnam veteran who has been sleeping in his hot dog cart in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art because he claims rival vendors will take the prime real estate if he leaves the area in the evening.
“Why did I know we were going to get a Weiner story today?” Mayor Bloomberg joked.
