Anthony D. Weiner, former U.S. Representative, ran for mayor in 2005 and 2013. Before his 1998 election for the congressional seat, Weiner was a member of the New York City Council. After replacing his mentor Senator Charles Schumer in Congress, Weiner continued to advocate for issues regarding housing in New York. Specifically, he analyzed the cost of housing relative to income for New Yorkers. Additionally, he advocated for small businesses during a time of increased closings in the early 2000s. Weiner ran for Mayor in 2005, but lost in the Democratic primary to Fernando Ferrer. Though once considered a strong contender in the 2013 New York Mayoral race, Weiner lost all chances at the title after a recent Twitter scandal. He admitted to having six sexual relationships electronically over a course of three years. On June 16, 2011, Weiner announced his resignation from Congress.
