Doesn’t get any more pathetic than this.
Anthony Weiner is allegedly paying a firm to provide him with “supporters” at some events, a source has told The New York Post.
The New York mayoral candidate used the California firm Crowds on Demand to deliver paid actors to some events, the Post’s report Wednesday claims.
“The source said surrogates for Weiner approached the Santa Monica-based company days after Indiana-native Sydney Leathers came forward to say that Weiner had continued his digital dalliances after resigning from Congress,” the paper said reported.
The source said the Weiner campaign used the company “several times,” including at the Aug. 11 Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan, where it is alleged a number of actors were paid $15 an hour to make up a crowd of his supporters.
The actors were asked by the campaign to seem “like either supporters or people who met him and became supporters as a result of that encounter,” the source told the Post. “The people would initially be skeptical and then they ask him various questions but would appear then to be convinced by his spiel.”
