Anthony Weiner Was a ‘Real-Life Cosmo Bachelor’ in 1996


Cosmo — yes, Cosmo — has taken this opportunity to post their interview with then-31-year-old city councilman Anthony Weiner from back in 1996, when he had aspirations of running for Congress within the next few years and, relationship-wise, wanted to be “sucked back into the throes of love.” Weiner had been chosen as one of the magazine’s 101 real-life bachelors, garnering a short Q&A along with his photo (looking sharp in a plaid blazer and Mom jeans!) under the headline “The Future President?” FYI: He’s a Virgo. Tear sheet after the jump.
