    Weiner inserts himself:

    His ego has no bounds.

    In a dazzling display of arrogance, disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner is trying to insert himself back into politics -- calling power brokers and would-be candidates for his old seat, hoping they'll let him play a role in choosing his own successor, The Post has learned.

    Weiner, who became a national dirty joke after he was caught sexting young women, now wants to be a kingmaker.

    One Democratic insider confirmed that Weiner has spoken to the Queens party chairman, Rep. Joe Crowley, about whom the Dems should pick.

    He has also reached out to several of the potential candidates, according to the insider.

    "He's held the seat," the insider said.

    "He knows the district better than anyone else. He's interested in a Democrat keeping the seat. I'm pretty sure he's spoken to everybody...

    Did Weiner officially resign yet?

    I don't recall his letter of resignation being read on the House floor, signifying his official quitting...

    Not officially as of June 20. I haven't been able to find any updates since then and we probably won't until after the 4th. Currently I think most of our fearless leaders are back in their home districts except for the few dozen who are touring Europe this week on our dime.

    No no no.

    It is totally and offically official.

    Signed, sealed and delivered. Read on the floor. Boehner made his formal announcement.

    Here:

    It was a joyous moment in NY State History.
