Weiner Doesn't Want to Return to Congress

Blames Tea Party


Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D), currently lagging in polls of the New York mayoral race, said on Monday that he wouldn't return to Congress if he had the chance.

"Congress is not that good a job anymore," he said on NBC's "Today Show." 

"You know, frankly there's such a center of gravity around stopping anything from happening, the Tea Party Right has frankly held hostage the place. It's not a great place if you want to go and solve problems."
