Anthony Weiner

According to an NBC News Report, Anthony Weiner, whose career as a congressman collapsed after he posted sexually suggestive pictures of himself on Twitter, has announced that he’s running for mayor of New York City.

After months of speculation, the former congressman announced via a YouTube video that he will be running for mayor of New York City, nearly two years after he resigned from Congress over a sexting scandal. NBC's Mara Schiavocampo reports.

“I made some big mistakes and I know I let a lot of people down. But I've also learned some tough lessons,” the Democrat said in a video posted on his website late on Tuesday.
