A commenter claims to have received a phone call Saturday night “that appeared to be testing messages that Weiner could use to explain why he is not running for mayor.”
Anthony Weiner has said that he'll make a a decision later this month about whether or not to enter the mayor's race. There are signs, despite his self-sabotaging comments about waiting to see the lay of the land, that he's at least keeping his options open.
Marie Ternes, a spokeswoman for Weiner, did not deny the plausibility of the reader’s account.
“We don’t talk about polls, except we don’t push poll,” she said, referring to this.
