Is former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner looking to get back into politics as a mayoral candidate this year?
According to an article in the New York Daily News, the former Forest Hills legislator was one of the subjects of a phone poll conducted of Manhattan residents recently.
The poll questions pertained to potential candidates for New York City mayor during this year's elections.
Before his downfall, Weiner was considered a front-runner for the office in 2013 with a huge campaign war chest and years of experience as a self-annointed middle-class crusader.
That all came crumbling to the ground after Weiner was busted sending nude and semi-nude photos of himself to social media followers.
Currently, there are several candidates for mayor on the democratic side of the spectrum, including City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, D-Manhattan, former Comptroller Bill Thompson and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio.
Weiner, should he enter the race, would certainly have high name recognition.
Since his unceremonious exit from the New York political scene in 2011, however, the former congressman has kept a very low profile.
His wife, Huma Abedin, aide to Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, gave birth to their first child last year.
The only noise that Weiner himself has made recently was when he tweeted a Hurricane Sandy response video from his infamous Twitter profile.
According to the New York City Campaign Finance Board, Weiner has nearly $5 million in contributions elligible to be used during this election cycle.
