Disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner used more than $13,000 in campaign funds to hire private investigators to probe the so-called “hacking” of his Twitter account — despite later taking responsibility for the leaked photos that led to his resignation from Congress.
Weiner paid T&M Protective Services of Manhattan $13,290 for “legal services” in the fourth quarter of 2011, Federal Election Commission financial disclosures filed Tuesday show.
But according to the New York Daily News, Weiner really hired the firm to do investigative work in the thick of the scandal last summer.

Politisite was a pioneer in internet political news gathering and dissemination. Politisite came live in early 1998 and become the first internet only news source to cover local, state, and national political campaigns, debates and elections. Before there were the terms Blog, Blogger, New Media, or Crowd-sourcing, before Talking Points Memo (2000), Daily Kos (2002), the Huffington Post (2005), or Politico (2006), Politisite was developing what has become the standard in political news coverage long before most political sites were even conceived. The Name ‘Politisite” simply means Political Website.
