After giving his concession speech Tuesday, Anthony Weiner sprinted away from the media scrum surrounding him outside of Connolly's Irish Pub in Midtown Manhattan, jumping into a black SUV.
The reporters (including me) had been tailing him for the whole, undignified night. At one point, he sprinted through a McDonald's to avoid us.
Weiner handled the confrontation with his typical tact. That is, he gave the finger to Shimon Prokupecz, a reporter for WNBC, New York's local NBC affiliate.
At first, we thought nobody had gotten a photo of Weiner's gesture. Luckily, New York 1 did! Video producer Kate Rose tweeted it out! Here's the photographic evidence that Weiner saluted the press on his way out:September 11, 2013
Lindsey Christ of NY1 also snagged a shot of the bird
