FLATBUSH - Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner campaigned at a Flatbush soup kitchen today following a new sexting scandal.

Weiner helped volunteers at the Masbia Soup Kitchen prepare meals and said he visited because he wanted to highlight the importance of community outreach.

As mayor, Weiner said he would create a city government position to focus solely on ways to help nonprofit organizations.

Meanwhile, despite Weiner's insistence that he wants to keep his campaign about the people of New York City, his sexting scandal spells bad news for his poll numbers. The latest Wall Street Journal-Marist poll shows City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has regained the lead in the Democratic primary by 9 percent.
