"I've been endorsed by Frances Weiner, 31-year-veteran and a member of the UFT," he said today after a transportation forum in Manhattan.
Weiner claimed he wasn't seeking the endorsement of the UFT, but was merely hoping for the support of its rank-and-file teachers.
If I were Weiner, I wouldn't be so certain mom was going to vote for me.
Lots of people are answering "Weiner" when the pollsters are asking who they're likely to vote for, but we'll see how many of those actually pull the lever for Weiner come September.
I'm betting it will be a lot fewer than he's polling in May and June.
