Amid Mayoral Rumors, Weiner Pays Rent on an Office

The Post reports that Weiner is also considering running for public advocate as a backup plan. The current public advocate, Democrat Bill de Blasio, is a likely mayoral candidate, along with Thompson, embattled Comptroller John Liu and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, the favorite in early polls. The four other contenders have not yet filed their second-quarter disclosure reports; the deadline is Monday. As of the end of the first quarter, Quinn had about $4.5 million in the bank, de Blasio and Liu each had a little more than $1.5 million, and Thompson had less than $800,000.
