Weiner heckled by his own mom

`Anthony Weiner got a public reminder yesterday that “Mother knows best.”

As the Democratic mayoral hopeful blasted Mayor Bloomberg’s educational policies yesterday, he was quietly corrected by his own mom. [..]

“You basically have one choice in school now in terms of a second language and that’s Spanish,” said Weiner (D-Queens, Brooklyn), a public school alum.

But his mom, Fran, a retired teacher whom he praised earlier, informed him that Latin is still taught in some schools.

After a back-and-forth, Weiner joked: “Please. I can’t be heckled by my own mother.”‘
