The group's leader was the same user who discovered the lewd photo that Weiner mistakenly sent publicly to 21-year-old Seattle college student Gennette Cordova, the Times reports. The user was known as Dan Wolfe, which the Times reports is a false name linked with the now-defunct handle @PatriotUSA76.
Wolfe opened the PatriotUSA76 account Jan. 6 and published messages about Weiner and wife Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Times reported. Soon Wolfe focused on which Twitter feeds Weiner followed.

Scandal puts Weiner's wife in the spotlight
"Weiner's new follow is a high school girl. LMAO! Freak!" read one post Wolfe published, according to the Times.
"He tweeted about it and then the porn star was gone," Stack told the Times before referring to Weiner. "He was paying attention."
Last month, Stack sent a 16-year-old California girl who wanted Weiner to escort her to her prom a message discouraging her from contact with the congressman.
"If you're a minor and he's following you, well, seems a little creepy if not in ny," the message read, according to the Times.
Stack copied Weiner on the message. The girl posted the next day that Weiner unsubscribed from receiving her updates.
