  173. Thanks to yesterday’s and today’s New York Post, we can have a really good idea of what Weiner was REALLY doing there.

    Possible caption:

    Can I tell Joe Crowley that you’ll give $4,000 to the campaign if the candidate is not Melinda Katz, and more to the county organization?

    Or maybe: Give me a little more time – I’m writing this e-mail to Ed Koch.

    “One Democratic insider confirmed that Weiner has spoken to the Queens party chairman, Rep. Joe Crowley, about whom the Dems should pick.

    He has also reached out to several of the potential candidates, according to the insider.

    “He’s held the seat,” the insider said.

    “He knows the district better than anyone else. He’s interested in a Democrat keeping the seat. I’m pretty sure he’s spoken to everybody.”

    Reading between the lines, what he’s doing here is that he’s using an argument that certain candodates will not be able to wage a good campaign – and what he would say is they don’t have enough any money – but someone else he names can. That would be hsi leverage.

    This is today’s article:

    Weiner to do hard time in rehab

    Further down, it says like this:

    News of Weiner’s plans were disclosed the same day The Post reported that the he’s trying to play kingmaker, inserting himself into the jockeying to select his replacement in a special election likely to be held on Sept. 13.

    “I can’t imagine he’s going to have any say in it,” said Assemblyman David Weprin, one of a handful of Queens Dems lining up for a shot at Weiner’s seat in the Brooklyn-Queens 9th Congressional District.

    Rep. Joe Crowley, the borough’s Democratic chairman, said he has spoken to Weiner about the future of the district.

    But Crowley told The Post that “the conversation was really more about how bad he feels about the situation that he’s caused.”

    The county leader declined to elaborate.

    Crowley said he has not decided who would get the party line.

    Queens Democrats in contact with Crowley said the boss is simply humoring Weiner.

    “I don’t think anybody’s taking it seriously,” one senior Queens Dem said of Weiner’s effort to help find a successor. “People feel sorry for him.”

    I think he is humoring him, because Weiner doesn”t control any donations, or any significant ones. Maybe he is a player, but a very, very minor one.
