Anthony Weiner Calls Cops on WCBS Reporter

With New York Congressman Anthony Weiner continuing to deflect questions about whether he took the lewd photo sent from his Twitter account last week, veteran WCBS political reporter Marcia Kramer decided to go to his office and knock on doors.

After identifying herself as a WCBS reporter, Kramer was greeted with slammed doors and cold silence from Weiner’s staff.

Weiner’s press secretary David Arnold eventually spoke to Kramer, who argued that the six-term congressman owed it to his New York constituents to speak with a local news outlet.

Arnold was unswayed and, after Kramer left the congressman’s office, Weiner’s staff called the police.

Here’s how things went down, according to WCBS:

Police officers asked for identification. One cop told Kramer that if she went into Weiner’s office and didn’t leave if she was asked, she could be arrested.

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

Kramer responded, “But I wasn’t refusing to leave.”

Kramer was never asked to leave Weiner’s office, but the fact that the cops were called is a clear sign that the stress of this so-called “Weinergate” controversy is taking its toll.

Here’s video of the incident:
