Hangin’ with Weiner: Reporters live-tweet candidate’s door-knocking campaign

Candid photography enthusiast and mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner today announced his plan for New York City police officers to wear tiny lapel cameras to record their interactions with residents, but it was Weiner’s door-to-door trek later in the day that had us wishing he was wearing one, just this once. Weiner was accompanied by a number of reporters as he knocked on apartment doors in Harlem.


Here’s Scott Conroy’s coverage of his “revealing hour” with Weiner.


Self awareness fail: Anthony Weiner tells British reporter ‘it’s hard to take you seriously’

  • Terrell Guell

    Weiner wants police to where lapel cameras, why so he isn’t the only one to get in trouble when there is a camera around

    • Stephen K

      So now the cops can be just like their mayor –

      “Hey baby, wanna see a picture of my baton?”

  • TocksNedlog

    *knock knock*
    “Who’s there?”
    “Land shark.”

  • Republicanvet

    Likely the last time Weiner will ever be seen in Harlem…unless he starts tweeting again.

  • Roto

    knock knock “Hi, I’m Anthony Weiner, runni…” “BWAAAaaahaahaahaaaa” slam

  • TocksNedlog

    So — he hears that African-Americans are more forgiving of his past transgressions than any other demographic, and so it’s UP TO HARLEM FOR WEINER!


  • FreedomFighter

    This is so sad.

  • Jeremy

    he tweeted this pic out before he went door to door.


  • TocksNedlog

    Young Harlem female: “If I promise to vote for you, then what are you gonna do for me?”

    Weiner: “Tell me your Facebook handle and I promise to bust a nut all over your pic, later.”

    • The Penguin

      Holy Sh*t!

  • grais

    “This is what I like doing.”
    Not. Even. Close.

  • Republicanvet

    “knock, knock”
    “Who’s there?”
    “Weiner. I’m running for mayor and just wanted to let you know I will be hard to beat.”

    • WhoMeToo


  • Jeremy

    ” Knock Knock
    Hi,I’m Anthony Weiner running for…
    “The Rents too damn high” slams door on Weiner.

  • grais

    Woman in apt.: “You were already here!”
    She’s a genius! It’s like Steve Allen’s advice when you want to get off the phone w/someone but you don’t want to offend : Hang up while You’re talking.

  • Maxx

    A veritable train wreck in slow motion. The guy running for mayor of the largest city in the country has become a knock-knock joke and that’s not even the worst revelation about his candidacy.

    Anyways, I’m down.

    Knock knock
    Who’s there?
    Little old lady
    Little old lady who?

    I didn’t know you could yodel.

    • Suzyqpie

      Maxx that is so horrible, I will provide some competition in Horrible Awards,
      Knock knock
      Who’s there
      “Anthony Weiner”
      “Do you have a daughter named Ima?”

  • Republicanvet

    Knock, knock.
    Who’s there?
    Anthony Smell Mop.
    Anthony Smell Mop who?
    Weiner: OK, but can I get pictures and your vote?

  • Junie3

    Reading that was 4 minutes of my life that was a complete waste of time. I can only imagine how opening the door to him would feel.

  • Jon

    It’s like a political comedy/soft porn version of the Bataan Death March, if it had been held in a Harlem apartment building. There really is nothing else to Weiner’s life but politics if he’s willing to go through this and actually thinks it’s helpful. Bob Filger is more self-aware about his actions than this guy (who probably still think having a ‘D’ next to his name plus Huma will somehow save him in the end).

  • Jeff H

    If I heard that knock on my door, could I just do like Crazy Joe told me and shoot through the door?

  • arttie

    At least its only a door that is knocked up.

  • Jack Deth

    Maybe Weiner should change his door knock greeting to “Candygram!”?

    There’s a reason he’s in fourth place. You’ve just been informed of one of them.

  • Texas Obama Loather

    This guy is beyond sad. He is completely delusional. BTW, what is “pre-knocking?” LOL!

  • World B. Free

    This guy is a pure jackass, arrogant as hell. I would love to see somebody just punch his lights out at a campaign stop.

  • Axelgreaser

    WIENER HITS THE PAVEMENT (OUCH!) Wiener: “KNOCK KNOCK! Voter: “Who’s there?” Anthony Wiener (A beat or two…) “Carlos Danger?” Anthony Wiener: “Well..I” Voter: “How do you ‘stand’ on the issue of…oh sorry, let me rephrase, a, what are your views regarding 32-oz. soda’s, are you hard on…oops, I shouldn’t say it that way, a well, will you flip flop when all the balls are in the air, a…oh, dear, that’s not good either. Balls, not good. It’s hard, oh, there I go again, a…excuse me, but it’s DIFFICULT to vote for a joke. So, just shove your junk under the door and I’ll evaluate where you and your opposition are pointed and rub one of you off later…oh! Tsk! That’s sounded dirty, too. Off my list, I meant. Just shove your stuff, er, pamphlet under the door. And go away. I’m still in my bathrobe.”

    Wiener: “Knock, knock!!!”
