NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Two years after a sexting scandal drove him from the U.S. House, Anthony Weiner is now trying to revive his political career with a run for New York City mayor.
Weiner spoke to WCBS 880’s Steve Scott on Friday and answered questions during Scott’s Eye on Politics segment.
“What have you learned about yourself over the past couple of years that makes you a different Anthony Weiner now than you were then?” Scott asked.
“Well, look, I’ve gone through substantial changes,” Weiner said. “You know, for the first time in 20-some odd years, I wasn’t in a position of government, had a chance to look at it from the outside as a consumer. I have a 17 month old at home. That changes your perspective in an awful hurry.”
