Weiner Paid for 'Supporters' at Recent Events

Anthony Weiner is "having such a hard time generating support for his limp campaign that he has resorted to paying a rent-a-crowd firm to provide 'supporters' for his events," the New York Post reports.

"Some of the gung-ho Weiner crowds, including at the Aug. 11 Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan, were really actors who were paid $15 an hour by the California firm Crowds on Demand... The campaign asked the company to have actors seem 'like either supporters or people who met him and became supporters as a result of that encounter.'"

Weiner tweets the story is a hoax.
