If you are tired of hearing about Weiner’s weird sex scandals, perhaps some other scandal will be more to your taste? How about Anthony Weiner’s six-figure wedding, which it seems he could not have possibly afforded on the $175,000 he made as a congressman. Ethics watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center are investigating why it seems he had a wedding that costs upwards to $250,000 and yet did not record gifts on their Financial Disclosure Reports for that year. The Ethics in Government Act demands written permission from the House Ethics Committee for Congressman receiving more than $250 in gifts – but Weiner and wife never sought such written permission.

As the Daily Caller reported, NLPC Chairman Ken Boehm stated, “Knowingly filing a materially false Financial Disclosure Report not only violates the Ethics in Government Act but also the False Statements Accountability Act, a federal criminal statute. The public is entitled to know who paid the hundreds of thousands of dollars it apparently cost for Weiner to pay for such an extravagant wedding reception. Weiner is not above the law.”


His wife, Huma Abedin, for instance, had her wedding dress made by world-famous designer, who also is dressmaker to Hillary Clinton, Oscar de la Renta, something that would have cost over $50,000. The mere venue for the wedding, at Oheka Castle on Long Island, is “Long Island’s most expensive wedding venue,” costing an average of $100,000, before flowers, band, hotel rooms, and so forth.

The subsequent marriage has of course held its quirks, what with Weiner’s sexting obsessions, but it seems the wedding itself, the very initiation of it all, is a questionable matter, and this is why the House Ethics Committee was going after Wiener for filing a false Financial Disclosure Report, before he resigned from Congress over his sexting scandal, shoring up the investigation before it could get started.
