Inside Move: Rivera considers mayoral run

TV personality likely to join as independent

First there was Al Capone’s vault — will Gotham’s City Hall be next?

TV journo-personality Geraldo Rivera is considering a mayoral run in New York City come election time next year. Rivera told sources this week of his ambition to replace Rudy Giuliani as the Big Apple’s next big cheese. Rivera is mulling over announcing his candidacy in June for the November race, but an upcoming appearance on “The Howard Stern Show” might provide a more appropriate forum. Rivera is said to be considering a former George W. Bush election team member for a role in his campaign.

Rivera, who frequently criticizes Democrats and Republicans and has cited Libertarian leanings in the past, would likely run as an independent, sources said. He hosts “Rivera Live” for CNBC.
