Former U.S. congressman from New York and current Democratic candidate for New York City Mayor Anthony Weiner stops to speak to the media outside his New York City apartment July 24, 2013. Weiner on Tuesday vowed to stay in the race despite admitting sending sexually explicit messages and photos to women even after the online sex chat scandal that cost him his congressional seat.

Ending a spell of social-media radio silence, former Rep. Anthony Weiner has returned to Facebook. The failed New York mayoral candidate couldn’t make a political comeback, but he’s made a splashy rally online, at least.

Weiner hadn’t posted on his personal Facebook since September of 2012, but began a flurry of posts on Dec. 20. His posts are the usual grab-bag of proud-papa pics (adorable son Jordan waving maracas) and political discourse  (he shared an article about single-payer health systems). Over at his official candidate page, he posted a reflective letter to friends that has some wondering about his political future. “What’s next? I’ll keep you posted on my plans,” he wrote. “But I hope we keep the band together.”

His online timeout followed revelations that the married Democrat been sending explicit photos to young women.

“Welcome back!” a Facebook friend wrote following his Dec. 20 post.

We’ll second that.
