New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner (D) may be participating in the filming of a documentary that follows his campaign, according to the New York Post:
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.
Camp Weiner would only say the recording is not for a television commercial — the first of which is slated to air on Monday. The $500,000 pitch follows his recent poll-number plunge in the wake of new revelations about his sexting habit, according to sources. Kriegman does not appear anywhere on Weiner’s recent campaign filings, though he worked for him as recently as 2005.
Relatedly, CNN announced recently that it will produce a documentary, complete with a theatrical release, based on the life of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton is a close friend of Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin.
