#AnthonyWeiner Will Be Fined $65K For Misuse Of Campaign Funds In 2013 Mayoral Race

Anthony Weiner recently found out that he is being fined by the New York City Campaign Finance Board to the tune of $65,000 for multiple violations of campaign finance rules. It seems that the serial sexter used campaign funds to pay for his personal cell phone bill (one can only imagine the horror of donors when they find out that they were unintentionally funding Weiner’s sexting with an underage girl). It seems Weiner also misused campaign funds for many other disallowed expenditures such as hiring a campaign consultant to the tune of $46K. The list of the use of these diverted funds boggles the mind. It includes such gems as a $1, 500 dry cleaning bill and purchase of a $600 television that was never explained. He also paid one consulting group an amount of $26,000 in excess of their contract and failed to show how the payment was even connected to his campaign.

 

 

Weiner was also ordered to pay a total of $195, 377 in fines by the board to cover the ten violations outlined in their letter to Weiner regarding the $1,652,074 worth of public funds that his 2013 Mayoral bid received.  Among the violations cited in the letter:

1. Failing to report transactions $1,227

Campaigns are required to properly report all financial transactions to the Board.
See Admin. Code §§ 3-703(1)(d), (g), (6), (11), (12); Board Rules 1-09, 3-03(c), (d), (e), 4-01.The Campaign failed to report $61,369.70 in transactions that appear in its bank records.The Board assessed a penalty of $1,227 for these violations.
2. Filing a late disclosure statement $200
Campaigns are required to file complete and timely disclosure statements on scheduleddates.
See N.Y.C. Charter § 1052(a)(8); Admin. Code §§ 3-703(6), (12), 3-708(8); Board Rules 1-09, 3-02.The Campaign filed Disclosure Statement 16 one day after the deadline.The Board assessed a penalty of $200 for this violation.
3. Failing to file and late filing of daily pre-election disclosure statements $312
 Aggregate contributions and loans from a single source in excess of $1,000, and aggregate expenditures in excess of $20,000, received or made within 14 days of an election, must be disclosed to the Board within 24 hours.
See Admin. Code §§ 3-703(6), (12), 3-708(8), 3-719(1);Board Rules 1-09, 3-02(e).The Campaign failed to file the required daily disclosures to report five expenditures. The Campaign also disclosed a $13,800 expenditure to Penczner Media four days late. The Board assessed a penalty of $312 for these violations.
And as they say, the beat goes on. I would love to see the fall out if a Republican did the same exact thing. After all, as we have seen with the Clinton’s if you belong to the Dem party and have money and influence, it seems you can do no wrong.
How did it go so wrong with Huma and Weiner?
How did it go so wrong with Huma and Weiner?
Just when he thought life could not get any worse for him, after all this summer it seemed he had hit rock bottom when wife Huma Abedin announced that she was walking away from their marriage after the latest sexting scandal broke in August. Then last month just before the election he checked into a sex addiction program only to be publicly humiliated when British daily DailyMail UK broke the story.
Cheer up Anthony, this has to be the absolute bottom!
Cheer up Anthony, this has to be the absolute bottom!
I frankly cannot imagine that it could get any worse for Weiner, unless there are still additional skeletons yet to fall out of his (seemingly) endless closet. You will understand if I grab the popcorn and champagne and indulge in a little schadenfreude.
