Here’s where it really gets good. I gave Joel Pollak all the information that he requested, ASAP, as requested earlier and finished on Monday, May 30, 2011.
On Tuesday, I get the first email from my new bestest friend, Bill Bastone from The Smoking Gun website. (and Andrew Breitbart long-time friend)

Subject: Hello from The Smoking Gun
Hi, this is Bill Bastone, editor of The Smoking Gun news web site. I’d like to speak with you re: Anthony Weiner…Is there a number you can be reached at? Or I can be contacted at 212-275-9993 or via this e-mail address.
Thanks very much.
What happens next, I’m told, is unheard of.
Today, I reached out to three different journalists whom I had the pleasure to meet during this “scandal”, and I’m waiting to get their thoughts on right vs. wrong in this next segment.
Early this Thursday morning, I am helping a friend and preparing to go to Queens, NY. My phone rings and it is Joel Pollak, wondering if he can have a few minutes of my time. He has some questions he needs answered, do I have time to talk? ” Not really”, I explain. ” I’m on my way to do some stuff. But I can get back to you later on.”
He stresses how important it is that I confirm my identity to Andrew and himself. I need to prove to the two of them that I am not DAN WOLFE. Meanwhile, I have not resisted any requests to return phone calls, emails, or to give any information or anything that has been asked of me. Now it is of IMMEDIATE IMPORTANCE to THE BIGS that the person they say they have “never used anything from” is who he claims to be. At this point, my friend and his dad are waving to me, beckoning me to the car impatiently. Yet, I am trying to please Joel and Andrew so my name can get cleared.
Joel’s stern tone tells me that he does not want to take no for an answer but I tell him that I’ll have to get back to him when I’m finished with my day. Never once did I think to myself, “Why the fuck am I trying to help this asshole?” Or “Why am I talking to him? If Andrew wants something, he should talk to me” Once again, like my life dictates, I get stuck with the worst-case scenario.
I call Joel many hours later and he tells me that he sent me an email:
This is what Joel “needs”

Social security number!
As you all have figured out by now, I gave it all to ‘em. Everything. Sang like a canary. And they took. And took it all. But that wasn’t good enough for these guys…….
Here I make ONE simple request, thinking “oh, after giving them all that they asked for, including my SSN, they should do something for me, riiigggghhhhtttt?????”
Can I tweet out a statement saying that I am not DAN WOLFE??
Can I tweet a tweet saying that I am not Dan Wolfe????
And then……..Part Three Tomorrow….The Smoking Social Security Gun Numbers Bastone or…..
I Found Out Too Late That Bill Bastone And Andrew Breitbart Were Buddy Buddy
