Former Representative Anthony Weiner (D-NY) announced his resignation in June from the House of Representatives, following revelations that he exchanged sexually explicit messages and photographs of himself with women he met online and then lied about it.

Yesterday, the disgraced former Congressman weighed in on the race.
The New York Post reported:
Disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner voted for Democrat David Weprin to replace him in Tuesday’s special election, saying it would be “bad” if the seat went to a Republican for the first time in nearly a century.
Democratic leaders in Washington, acknowledging a surprisingly strong threat from the Republican candidate in the solidly Democratic district of Brooklyn and Queens, said the race will likely be seen as a voter referendum on President Barack Obama’s leadership.
Recent polls show Republican Bob Turner, a retired media executive who won 40 percent of votes last year in a failed bid to unseat Weiner, leading over Weprin, a state assemblyman from a well-connected political family.
Weiner was among a steady flow of New Yorkers at the polls for the special election to finish out the final year of his term in the U.S. House of Representatives after he resigned amid a Twitter sex scandal. The 9th District seat may be eliminated in upcoming redistricting.
He showed up alone, wearing jeans and a blazer, stating that he voted for Weprin, adding, “I am confident he’d make an excellent congressman.”
