Tucked near the bottom of a Wall Street Journal story about how legal fees have been devouring comptroller John Liu's mayoral campaign coffers is a disturbing Anthony Weiner quote about his own mayoral aspirations, the subject of some scrutiny recently. In response to an e-mail about stories concerning his intentions, the Journal reports that Weiner wrote, "It's a clown story, bro." Weiner even had the benefit of unlimited time to consider his reply, but he went for it anyway. Maybe his account got hacked.
