In 1998, Weiner ran for a seat in the California State Assembly, District 6 on the platform of being a card-carrying Paul Revere Society member. Footage of the televised debate shows him pulling out the membership card, holding it up high, and speaking at length about his membership in the society. [cite web |url=http://www.ptreyeslight.com/stories/oct29_98/endorsements.html |title=Membership card pullout] His candidacy was endorsed by his father, mother, and Shannon Reeves, President of the Oakland NAACP. Weiner's campaign was unsuccessful.
