Heard on the Hill: Wheeling and Dealing

All of D.C. seemed caught up in “Jersey Shore” mania on Monday when Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi made a celebrity appearance at the Washington Auto Show.

But HOH hears another VIP quietly checked out the vehicle showcase over the weekend as well.

A tipster spotted Rep. Anthony Weiner looking at the collection of new automobiles Saturday afternoon. According to the spy, the New York Democrat was dressed down in jeans and chatted on his BlackBerry for a bit while walking through the exhibit.

The flashy Audi A4 and BMW Z4 were among the models Weiner checked out, our spy says.

No word on whether a specific car caught the Congressman’s eye; his office didn’t return our request for comment by press time.
