The gift that keeps on giving: Weiner

The news just hasn’t been the same since Anthony Weiner went away. But now he’s back. Yay! NYDN:

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.

He wasn’t hacked or pranked or whatever it was, and he knew he wasn’t hacked or pranked or whatever it was, and yet he spent campaign money on a PI firm? Was he hoping it would back up his cover story — “I’m looking into this crime that was committed against me, honest!” — or was he trying to find somebody to pin it on? Whatever the case, it’s just more evidence, to anybody who still needed it, that this guy is unfit for office.

Mostly, though, I just wanted an excuse to post this pic again:
