NEW YORK (AP) — A photo of former New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner giving the middle finger to a reporter has emerged online.
A picture of Weiner making the obscene gesture was posted Tuesday night on the Twitter account of local NY 1 reporter Lindsay Christ (krihst). The station confirms their reporters shot the video and that Christ posted a screen grab of the video online.
The photo shows Weiner making the gesture to a reporter with his left hand as he sits in the backseat of a car. It was taken through the tinted window of the vehicle.
Weiner had just given his concession speech at a Manhattan bar after finishing fifth-place in the Democratic primary.
He resigned from Congress amid a sexting scandal in 2011.
