It was a rough weekend for all-but-forgotten mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner: Not only did his leading opponents fail to ruin their campaigns, but, while riding as a passenger on the FDR Drive, Weiner’s vehicle was involved in a three-car fender bender. “There was a chain reaction car accident,” said his spokesperson, Barbara Morgan. “All are ok.” It’s almost too neat a metaphor for his run, but the drivers were not, as far as we know, texting.
