At the end of the year, Mayor Michael Bloomberg will be term limited out of office. Anthony Weiner had previously been reported as seriously considering a run to replace New York’s Nanny-in-Chief, and now it looks like Weiner’s spending some dormant campaign funds trying to gauge now well NYC voters would receive his candidacy:

Disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s dormant New York City mayoral campaign paid more than $100,000 to a San Francisco-based polling firm earlier this month, suggesting the once-prominent Democrat whose career was derailed by allegations he sent salacious texts and photographs to various women online was contemplating a return to politics in this year’s elections.

The expenditures were disclosed in a filing with the city’s Campaign Finance Board late Friday. Weiner’s campaign paid David Binder Research $52,500 on March 4 for “research,” and then another $54,000 on March 5 for “polling costs,” according to his latest finance report, which includes expenditures from Jan. 12-March 11.

According to the New York Post, Weiner has $4.3 million left in his campaign account.

Another Weiner run for political office would be fun just for the campaign slogans. First and foremost: “Weiner 2013: Because public leeching is all I know.” But no matter what happens, Weiner won’t go hungry, thanks to the forced generosity of taxpayers.
