It was obvious from the instant he sent the notorious crotch-shot heard ’round the world that his Twitter account wasn’t hacked. Yet that didn’t prevent the disgraced Anthony Weiner from trying to pin the mess on someone else. His media accomplices actually played along for awhile until the fraud could no longer hold up. Still, he went and spent campaign money to hire private investigators to try and find someone to blame.
Disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner used campaign money to hire private investigators to chase down his lie about his now-notorious crotch-shot tweet.
Weiner paid T&M Protective Services of Manhattan $13,290 for “legal services” in the fourth quarter of 2011, financial statements filed Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission reveal.
Sources told the Daily News, however, that Weiner hired T&M — a firm loaded with former NYPD sleuths — when he was in full spin mode over the controversy that eventually led to his resignation.
Two sources familiar with Weiner’s downfall said the Queens pol told investigators his Twitter account was hacked. T&M investigated — and learned Weiner had sent them on a fool’s errand.
It’s weird how his Twitter account is still active.
