New York - Former New York congressman Anthony Weiner (WEE’-nur) has returned to the forum that led to his political downfall in 2011, launching a new Twitter account.

The married Democrat resigned from Congress after tweeting a lewd picture of himself and lying about his account being hacked. He later admitted trading inappropriate messages with several women.

Weiner’s first post Monday was decidedly not racy: a link to a 20-page policy statement outlining “64 Ideas to keep New York City the Capital of the Middle Class.”

By mid-afternoon, there were about 2,600 people following (at)anthonyweiner.

Weiner’s name has emerged this month in a large field of potential candidates for New York City mayor.

A recent Marist College poll showed about half the Democrats surveyed wouldn’t even consider voting for him.

Most of his followers are waiting to see how he'll mess up again. I bet he doesn't even have control over his twitter account anymore. Once again he'll claim it was a hacker that did,said,posted that. BTW good one @Aron1 #anthonysweiner

Weiner has my vote. We're electing a mayor, not a pope. So far he's the best and only viable choice in the race. Notwithstanding his personal indiscretions, he has always served our community well.

Didn't you hear? Somebody hacked his account; he had nothing to do with sending pornographic pictures of himself to hundreds, if not thousands, of women, most of whom he didn't know, some of them under-aged.

" he cared, really cared about the little people"

Big people... little people... grown-up people... under-aged people... as long as they were female and attractive, he cared, really cared about them.

I agree. He was a great friend of Israel and worked for his constituents. He did not vote to legalize toevah in NY State.
Go Weiner!

No nudity in pics; not pornographic. Never sent them to thousands or hundreds.

Thanks for showing how intelligent you are. I mean EVERYONE sends lewd pics to people they don't know, right? HELLO obviously the joke was to send it out on his twitter account, not to anyone in particular, therefore it was a simple, but lewd joke. Obviously your normal intelligence lies in the same place your comedic intelligence lies. However, lets not forget you intelligence on history. Were you aware that almost (if not all) our presidents had mistresses or affairs? That only as far back as the 90's we had a president who had an affair? However, he wasn't the first. In fact, the first to have an affair would be Thomas Jefferson (it's been hinted Washington, but there's no evidence of that), FDR was a well loved prez but he too had an affair as did JFK & many more. In comparison what Weiner did is hardly worth mentioning, therefore bear that in mind & grow up

Yes, he did indeed sent pictures depicting his private part to hundreds, if not thousands of women, almost none of whom he actually met, and a significant number of whom were under-aged.

As for his tshuva, when he announces that he returns to the way of his people, and divorces his arab wife, I will give some consideration to accepting it. Not before that.

He sent pictures in his underwear-still wrong but not pictures of his private parts.
