NEW YORK CITY — Former Rep. Anthony Weiner spent more than $100,000 on campaign consulting and polling this month, campaign finance records filed late Friday revealed.

Weiner, who was forced to resign following a sexting scandal, dished out $52,500 to David Binder Research in San Francisco, for research, and another $54,000 for polling in early March, the records show.

Weiner's spending has been fueling intense speculation that he is planning to mount a return to public office — but he remained mum on his plans Friday.

"[N]othing to report," he told DNAinfo.com New York via email.

Asked what information the poll gleaned, he added: [A]s they might say across the pond, I refer the right honourable gentlewoman to the answer I gave a moment ago."

Weiner has more than $4.3 million in his campaign coffers, making him a potentially potent opponent.

In addition to the consulting fees, he also continued to shell out cash to SL Green for a campaign office as well as to Verizon for office phone expenses.

Binder did not immediately respond to a call for comment.
