Anthony Weiner: The Movie? Candidate Travels with Filmmaker in Tow
Lights! Camera! Weiner?
Anthony Weiner, the disgraced Congressman vying to be the next Mayor of New York City, is traveling with a filmmaker on the campaign trail. That could yield plenty of footage for a documentary on the man whose sexting habits all but derailed his political career.
The Post spied MTV filmmaker Josh Kriegman — who is also Weiner’s former congressional district director — filming his every last word on the campaign trail recently. He’s often seen riding with Weiner, and a black mike box has been in Weiner’s back pants pocket for at least two weeks.
A campaign official told The New York Post the footage won't be used for a television commercial to promote Weiner's run. So why the near constant shooting schedule?
He appears to be with [Weiner] all the time. He’s been at retail stops, street fairs, forums. I bet he has amazing footage from the past couple months,” said one observer, who is often at multi-candidate events.
Kriegman's previous work includes producing documentaries for PBS and MTV, including the Emmy winning series Made.
