NEW YORK -- Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (WEE'-nur), who resigned over a sexting scandal in 2011, says he's weighing a run for New York City mayor this year.

The Democrat tells New York Times Magazine (http://nyti.ms/10Jnf1d ) "it's now or maybe never for me." But he acknowledges that it's a long shot because some people "just don't have room for a second narrative about me."

He says he doesn't know when he'll decide on entering the race, and concedes he'd be an underdog.

Weiner represented Queens and Brooklyn for more than a decade before resigning amid the scandal over his lewd online behavior.

The interview was posted online Wednesday and is scheduled to be published on Sunday.

His wife is Huma Abedin (HOO'-muh AB'-uh-deen), a longtime aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
