Who'd You Rather (Be Represented by): Paul Babeu, or Anthony Weiner?

While Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu claimed this week that he's not running for Congress in 2014, there's another politician who likes to take photos of himself without clothing who is running for office -- Anthony Weiner.
Weiner is running for Mayor of New York City, just a couple years after resigning from Congress amid his sexting scandal.
Babeu dropped his candidacy for Congress in 2012 amid allegations from his ex-boyfriend, a Mexican national whom Babeu's attorney threatened with deportation. Despite an alleged poll showing Babeu's a front-runner for the Republican nomination in Arizona's 1st Congressional District in 2014, Babeu claims he's going to finish his term as sheriff instead.
That got us thinking -- who'd you rather (be represented by) in a hypothetical match-up for public office: Babeu, or Weiner?
