Weiner announced his plans to run this week with a slick, subtly Mets-themed Web site. He kicked off his campaign Thursday morning at a subway stop in Harlem. But his past indiscretions won't necessarily stay in the past; he acknowledged in a radio interview that more women could come forward with photos and e-mails from him.
