Anthony Weiner authors pamphlet that looks like campaign material


Not only is he back on Twitter with a brand new account, former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has authored a type of outline on what he says will "keep New York the capital of the middle class."

Weiner's first and only tweet as of yet was sent out Monday afternoon with just a link to the 20-page online pamphlet. "In 2011, my concern for New York's middle class took on even greater personal meaning; my wife and I welcomed our son into the world," Weiner writes. "I believe Jordan deserves to grow up with the same, if not better, opportunities than I had."

Weiner's pamphlet contains his suggestions for New York's public transportation system, schools and tax reform among other policy areas. Its publication comes less than two weeks after the New York Times published a lengthy, largely sympathetic piece on Weiner and his life post-Twitter scandal. "I do recognize, to some degree, it’s now or maybe never for me, in terms of running for something," Weiner said in the piece. He is believed to want to run for mayor.
