Chuck’s Nod

Anthony‘s first mail piece is out, and it features a nice shot of him beside his mentor, Chuck Schumer. (Or, as the Senator is sometimes known, mini-Anthony.)

We asked Weiner’s spokesman, Anson Kaye, whether Chuck had approved Anthony’s use of the photo.

“Yup,” he emailed back. (So informal, that Anson.)

In any case, many suspect that this will be as much as Chuck does for any Democrat this Mayoral cycle, given his close ties to the current Mayor of New York.
