Anthony Weiner Not The Only Politician To Seek A Second Chance After Sex Scandal (SLIDESHOW)

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) made a plea to the nation in an interview published Wednesday, asking for a second chance after a lewd texting scandal resulted in his resignation in 2011.

Less than two years after sending a racy picture of himself via Twitter and ultimately exiting the political limelight, Weiner is reportedly considering a run for New York City mayor.

As the Associated Press points out, however, Weiner isn't the only politician to ask the nation for a second chance at electoral politics.
