Weiner began his political career in 1992 when he was elected to the New York City Council representing Brooklyn’s 48th district. He served in that position for six years before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1998. As a Democratic representative, Weiner represented New York’s 9th congressional district from 1999 to 2011.

During his time in Congress, Weiner was known for his passionate speeches and strong advocacy for progressive causes. He was a vocal supporter of healthcare reform, civil rights, and gun control, among other issues. Weiner was seen as a rising star within the Democratic Party and was considered a potential candidate for mayor of New York City.

However, in 2011, Weiner’s political career took a major hit when it was revealed that he had engaged in inappropriate online behavior. He had sent explicit messages and photographs to multiple women via social media platforms. The scandal, widely known as the “Weiner scandal,” led to public outrage and calls for his resignation.

Weiner initially denied the allegations but eventually admitted to his actions and apologized for his behavior. Despite the controversy, he initially attempted to continue his political career by running for mayor of New York City in 2013. However, his campaign faced significant challenges and public opinion was largely against him. He ultimately finished in fifth place in the Democratic primary.
