Former Rep. Anthony Weiner, who is running for New York mayor, says he has a strong record of working to protect public safety, to promote affordable health insurance and to ensure proper treatment for World Trade Center rescue workers. On all three counts, however, Weiner failed to turn good intentions into tangible results, writes David Halbfinger. "[W]hile Mr. Weiner was known as a fighter, he was not so well known for making a difference," he writes.
