NEW YORK — Former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner is spending campaign funds on polling and campaign research.
The Daily News of New York reports Friday that Weiner’s latest spending report disclosed more than $100,000 this month on research and polling with money from his political committee.
Two payments of $106,500 were made on March 4 and 5 to David Binder Research of San Francisco.
The Queens Democrat has millions in campaign funds he raised before a sexting scandal forced him to resign from office nearly two years ago.
Weiner ran for mayor in 2005 but did not in 2009. Before the scandal he was considered a potential favorite to win this year’s mayoral race.
When reached by the newspaper he said there was ‘‘nothing to report beyond what I reported.’’
