Former Rep. Anthony Weiner, who resigned from Congress after misfiring a racy photo over Twitter, spent more than $50,000 on polling in recent months, according to New York City campaign finance filings.
The latest filing with the city’s Campaign Finance Board for Weiner’s close-to-dormant mayoral campaign account shows he spent $54,000 on polling by David Binder Research on March 5. He spent another $52,500 on the firm for consulting work a day earlier, the filings show.
Weiner declined comment, and it’s unclear precisely what the polling was for. The New York Post reported earlier this year on a polling survey being conducted tossing Weiner’s name into the mix for city comptroller and for mayor.
Perhaps the former Rep. Weiner wants to run again for Congress. The question becomes, will Anthony Weiner be forgiven for his rather obvious and large indiscretions? Should we expect our congressmen to not participate in sexting? Is that too much to expect?
Will his little old ladies who made up excuses for him continue to support him? If he wins the office he runs for, will he behavr himself? What possesses a person to throw it all away on a naughty picture or two?
