Anthony Weiner's donations shrink in wake of sexting scandal
New York Daily News ^ | August 10, 2013 | Celeste Katz , Jennifer Fermino and Annie Karni

Posted on 08/10/2013 12:02:30 PM PDT by Zakeet

Anthony Weiner’s campaign fund-raising has virtually dried up since revelations of a sexting relapse rocked his bid for mayor.

Weiner received an average of just $1,897 a day in donations since the new sexting scandal erupted July 23, campaign finance records released Friday show.

That’s a trickle of the $16,434 he received each day, on average, in the 50 days after launching his run for mayor on May 22.

The records also show that Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, collected no money on his behalf since the new sexting allegations emerged, after she collected nearly $150,000 in the first 50 days of his candidacy.

Those are just friends of Weiner and Huma who still think that if he can only get elected they will be given political favors. That’s the way it works in big-city politics.

The common folks are washing their hands of him for the most part.

He’s toast.

He’s the perfect face of the Democratic party these days.

He must stay in the race - Obama equality and all that.

Those crazy New Yorkers just don’t appreciate the best candidate the Democratic [sic] party has ever offered them. That could be a side effect of global warming.

I’m actually surprised it didn’t go the other way. Very surprised he’s not getting donations by the boatload.

Tiny wiener. Tiny donations. Makes perfect sense. “If the wiener fits (an extra-small sized condom), then we must ...ah... Quit (donating to its frustrated holder). “.

Anthony Weiner's donations shrink in wake of sexting scandal

On Seinfeld, George Costanza explained "shrinkage" very well.

Thanks Zakeet.

$1,897 vs $16,434 — how much from OPEC?

Will somebody tell me what Weiner’s real name is? Anybody going into politics with a bit of sense would have changed a name as volatile as that. Michael Savage did; he was Michael Weiner originally, not a good name for a Jewish conservative talk show host.

It is still premature to think Weiner is down for the count. While his support flags, it would only take a little interest to perk up his campaign and have it flying high with pride again. Weiner’s strength grows as he reaches out and grows closer to the people. New Yorkers might even find it touching.
