Anthony Weiner, the former New York City congressman who resigned in 2011 after an uproar over risque online photos to at least a half-dozen women, is considering a run for mayor, according to published reports.

A New York Times Magazine profile of Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, portrays the former rising political star as spending much of his time doting on their 13-month-old son and venturing in a small orbit near their Park Avenue apartment.
