Skip to comments.Bloomberg Knew The Dirt On Weiner In 2009, And Used It To Force Him Out Of The Mayoral Race
Posted on 06/10/2011 11:28:45 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Michael Bloomberg forced Anthony Weiner out of the 2009 mayoral racebefore he'd even decided to runby convincing the Queens congressman the mayor's re-election campaign had more dirt on him than it actually did, Harry Siegel of the Village Voice reports.
While the Bloomberg campaign did not have the same sexts and tweets that leaked onto the Internet in recent days -- and which occurred in the past year -- the mayor's team poured resources into gathering dirt. Whatever Bloomberg actually found, Weiner was nervous enough about what the mayor potentially knew that he opted not to run.
A New York Post story from March 2009, which exposed the illegal campaign contributions Weiner had received from sexy foreign models, probably gave the congressman even more reason to worry.
Siegel reports that the Bloomberg campaign orchestrated an aggressive effort of intimidation, scare tactics, zip-code-specific digital ads, and, essentially, stalking, in order to convince Weiner not to challenge the mayor's bid for a third term.

This Weiney needs to go — sign the petition at:
Major premise: All Politicians are scum. Sure, I know, Aristotle would complain; if he were alive today he might object to how the argument was stated, but he would have to work hard to prove I was wrong.
What I want to find out is:
1. Who else knew about his sexting activity, and
2. What have/are they extorting from Weiner in exchange for their silence.
Hence, the main reason why politicians found to be engaging in illicit activities SHOULD NOT be allowed to remain in office.
If this is true Bloomberg should be jailed for this too
So Weiner dropped out of the 2009 race, afraid of what might come out..he assumed that some poeple knew something. Yet he was focused on running in 2013..he didn’t thin that anyone would get the dirt to one of his opponents. They guy is obviously insane.
Sounds like what Slick did to Newt.......
With the internet publication of the explicit photo of him in a state of arousal, I predict that coming next election, Anthony Weiner will be facing some STIFF competition!
We have only seen the tip of Weiner’s problem.
Weiner needs to stick it out.
This story has been hard on Weiner and his wife wants no more of it.
How many Democrats held it over his head to get the vote out of him they wanted?????
At least the plutocrat Bloomberg is a “bi-partisan” political campaigner - no one from any party is safe from his scrutiny and the financial resources he can put behind it.
Bloomberg is an arrogant bully. The “stalking” part of the story is scary.
Great to watch NY libs shred each other, LOL.
Now the "republican" Bloomberg will get smeared as part of this sleaze fest
Gotta luv it
Bloomberg was,and is now, a Democrat ;the Republicans simply fell for the old trojan routine.
Yep, and that’s exactly why we should never nominate or select Newt for any position of trust or responsibility.
If this is true imagine what the russians and the chinamen have on him in case they need it.
Gloomberg almost lost to a nobody rat in 2009. Weiner have beaten him.
How jaded am I, Bloomberg’s blackmail actually impresses me.
MAY have beaten him, I meant to write.
