As if the Anthony Weiner story wasn’t bad enough, there is now a report which claims that the former United States congressman spent an incredible amount of his campaign funds – $43,100 – to investigate his admitted-lie about his Twitter account being hacked, according to the Huffington Post on Monday.
Anthony Weiner photos keep coming as his 2012 sextings go viral

Sunday, the same day that Weiner’s New York City mayoral campaign manger Danny Kedem finally said “enough is enough” and walked away from his job, the report about Weiner’s investigation-into-his-own-lie expenses surfaced via allegation initially made by the New York Daily News. According to the report, Weiner hired T&M Protection Resources which is an investigation firm. It was two years ago in March of 2011 that Weiner posted a lewd photo of himself on his social media account in error and immediately said his account was hacked. Rather than confessing immediately, he reportedly used $43,100 to have the incident investigated. As persons questioned how anyone could hack his account in a way to send a picture, it was also noted that Weiner was sidestepping the police by going straight to an investigative service. By now, everyone knows why Weiner avoided the police and what the investigation revealed: Weiner posted the picture himself and lied as long as he could about it.
In the New York City voters’ “fool me once, shame on you – fool me twice, shame on me” dilemma, Weiner continued to repeat his bad boy behaviors a year after resigning from congress – yet, to date, has not dropped out of the New York City’s mayoral race.
Besides Kedem quitting and the new report about Weiner abusing campaign funds for a no good reason, the weekend saw Weiner’s poll numbers drop as much as 40 percent by one poll – putting him far behind in the polls at this point. Additionally, a video went viral in which a retired school teacher blasted him, face-to-face, for having the audacity to think he can run New York City when she says she would have been immediately fired if she ever would have done anything like what he had done. And then there is the New Yorker magazine cover – not to mention more (warning) graphic photos of Weiner’s member as well as the revelation of Weiner’s very naughty texts to some woman other than his wife – Huma Abedin – from “The Dirty” web site.
