Former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner, who has twice had his political career derailed by sexting scandals, has hinted in a Facebook post that he might be working on a return to politics.

From The Hill:

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) may not be done with politics.

Weiner, whose run for New York City mayor imploded after it was revealed he hadn't stopped his online interactions with women apart from his wife, penned a Facebook post thanking his supporters and hinting at future political involvement.

"What's next? I'll keep you posted on my plans. But I hope we keep the band together," he says in the post.

"You have been an amazing resource and the network we have all become part of has helped lead the debate on national health care, the need for a smarter and more compassionate approach to the growing pockets of need in our nation, and we all have sought to make the argument that too often we progressives come to knife fights carrying library books."
