From the NY Post:
After he proposed to expand the visas available to foreign models so they can work in New York, Rep. Anthony Weiner's mayoral campaign took contributions from some cat walkers from abroad.
Problem is, the models aren't allowed to donate because they're not US citizens or permanent residents.
The donations for Weiner, a Democrat who represents Queens and Brooklyn, were made at a fund-raiser last June 30 at Merkato 55 in the Meatpacking District, records reviewed by The Post show.
The Weiner campaign put the donations toward qualifying for taxpayer matching funds by including them in its filing last July.
"It's the responsibility of the campaign to make sure that everything's kosher, and clearly it's not kosher," said Baruch College political expert Doug Muzzio.
Weiner's gala, just a month after his House model bill garnered headlines, was co-hosted by an immigration lawyer whose firm represents some of the top modeling agencies.
