That Person Cheering For NYC Mayoral Candidate Anthony Weiner Could Be A Paid Actor

August 28, 2013  |  

Because he hasn’t suffered enough humiliation, we now have reports that New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner (aka Carlos Danger) may be paying actors $15 per hour to pretend to support him at events. WHY is this man still in the race? Why? Why? Why? Why? It’s gotten to the point where it’s not even fun to watch his hijinks anymore. It’s just cringeworthy and sad.

The New York Post is saying Weiner’s campaign has hired a firm called Crowds on Demand to boost cheers for the candidate in situations like like the August 11 Dominican Day parade. Some of the actors aren’t “supporters” from the jump. Rather, they’re supposed to pretend that, after meeting him, they’re won over and support him post-encounter. At first, the Post says, Weiner’s camp wanted the company to confront people who would jeer the candidate. But fearing violence, Crowds on Demand said no. The company had no comment and the Weiner campaign denied hiring them.

” We are proud we’ve always had the biggest and most fired-up crowds. That’s enthusiasm the other campaigns just can’t buy,” said spokesperson Barbara Morgan.

Then the The New York Daily News did a little digging and found that one of his “supporters” from the ad below, Joel Acevedo, lists Anthony Weiner as an employer on his LinkedIn page. It’s so pitiful! Morgan again says that they are actual supporters.

Can we stick a fork in this campaign yet? Because it looks like it’s done. Well done.
