The media has been for the most part, fairly aggressive covering the whole Weinergate scandal. Of course NBC is not included in this, as they completely ignored the story last night, and instead talked about Chris Christie’s “helicopter trip.” Weiner has been dodging question after question, making crude jokes to female reports, and today called the police on CBS New York political reporter Marcia Kramer! This is really getting out of hand, and Anthony Weiner’s actions are absolutely unbecoming of a congressman. This needs to be investigated fully. Weiner today has said he is done discussing Weinergate and wouldn’t answer any more questions. CBS New York to their credit didn’t sit on their hands. They sent political reporter Marcia Kramer to Capitol Hill to try to get you some answers. Instead of speaking with Kramer, CBS claims that Weiner called the cops called on Kramer! Now lets get this straight. Weiner wouldn’t call the cops or have the FBI investigate the alleged “hacking” or “prank” but he calls the cops on a news reporter?
Here’s the exchange Marcia Kramer had with Weiner’s press secretary David Arnold:
Kramer: “All I want is for him to say something to his constituents, the people who have to vote for him.”
Arnold: “I don’t think you can say he hasn’t said anything to his constituents. He spoke for nine hours yesterday.
Kramer: “But not to anyone in New York. You know, this is the sort of in-the-bunker in the capitol, not to anyone in New York.”
After Kramer left Weiner’s office, his staff called the Capitol Police.
