Two-Ton Tony couldn't keep his mouth shut

An indicted Queens lawmaker was so chatty, investigators said they intercepted more than 15,000 calls on his office phone.

"Are you saying 15,000 calls on one phone?" an incredulous Manhattan Federal Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald asked prosecutors, who revealed Assemblyman Anthony Seminerio's gabfest during a court hearing Monday.

"But he doesn't look like a teenager."

Seminerio chuckled nervously at the defense table.

Over the next few weeks, prosecutors will turn over copies of the recorded calls as well as other evidence they've gathered in their case against the law-and-order Democrat and former city correction officer.

Tony, wasn't your monthly Social Security check enough to "get you by"?
