Weiner Paid Private Eye $45K to Investigate Own Lie

Anthony Weiner (D) paid a private investigator "nearly $45,000 in campaign cash to investigate his lie that a hacker posted a crotch shot on his Twitter feed," the New York Daily News reports.

"Weiner's brazen attempt to cover his tracks occurred shortly after Memorial Day weekend in 2011, when his first sexting scandal erupted and he went into furious spin control trying to save his career in Congress... Weiner ultimately paid a private investigations firm, T&M Protection services, $43,100 from his campaign fund -- knowing nobody hacked anything and that he'd sent the image himself."
