Watch Weiner's Office Call Cops on Reporter Trying to Get Interview

News

"you can be placed under arrest”

Despite Rep. Anthony Weiner saying he is no longer going to talk about he lewd photo sent from his Twitter account, a local reporter form New York's WCBS-TV decided to get one last interview with him about the incident. But he and his staff weren't having any of that. Instead of granting the interview, the staff called the cops.

Reporter Marcia Kramer showed up at Weiner's office today and was almost immediately met with hostility. She had this exchange with Weiner's Press Secretary David Arnold:

Kramer: “All I want is for him to say something to his constituents, the people who have to vote for him.”

Arnold: “I don’t think you can say he hasn’t said anything to his constituents. He spoke for nine hours yesterday.

Kramer: “But not to anyone in New York. You know, this is the sort of in-the-bunker in the capitol, not to anyone in New York.”

Even though Kramer was never asked to leave, she said, she did anyway. That's when Weiner's staff called the police:

“If you go to an office and are asked to leave, you can be placed under arrest,” Officer Michael Miller told Kramer.

The ironic part about the whole story? Weiner has refused to call the police on the alleged Twitter hacker, but his people are willing to call the cops on a curious reporter.
