(Newser) – Following his inconclusive media blitz, Anthony Weiner yesterday said he was done talking about that crotch shot. CBS 2 political reporter Marcia Kramer still wasn't feeling quite satisfied, though, and decided to pay him a visit at his Capitol Hill office. But instead of getting answers, she got the cops called on her. CBS New York reports that when Kramer initially walked into Weiner's office, doors were shut and she was largely ignored, until press secretary David Arnold emerged.

After telling Arnold she just wanted Weiner to make a comment directed to his constituents, Arnold replied, "I don’t think you can say he hasn’t said anything to his constituents. He spoke for nine hours yesterday." Kramer disagreed: "But not to anyone in New York. You know, this is the sort of in-the-bunker in the capitol, not to anyone in New York." Kramer then left—but Capitol police were called. One officer explained that "if you go to an office and are asked to leave, you can be placed under arrest." Kramer replied, with certitude, we're guessing: "But I wasn’t refusing to leave." Quips Andrew Stiles at the National Review, "I guess when Weiner said no more questions, he meant no more [expletive deleted] questions."
