Anthony Weiner’s political demise was rapid and, a boon to everyone else in the race. How much though, is hard to quantify.
But not impossible.
City Comptroller John Liu raised $205,675 between May 27, 2011 — the night the picture of Weiner’s crotch was accidentally sent to a woman in Seattle, kicking off the firestorm — and the day Weiner resigned, on June 17, 2011.
Obviously, it’s unfair to draw anything too deep into this kind of info. Checks come and get cashed on a rolling basis, but still…it’s a fun thing to calculate when it’s a nice Friday afternoon and there’s not much else to do except look at campaign finance reports.
