Filmmakers: Anthony Weiner was more than a punch line


A new documentary called “Weiner” offers a behind-the-scenes look at former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s once-promising political career, and his life following a sexting scandal. Filmmakers Josh Kriegman (who is a former Weiner staffer) and Elyse Steinberg tell TODAY that they wanted to show that Weiner was more nuanced and complex than the “punch line” he was often portrayed as.
