“Weinergate” or “wienergate”?

I'm confused as to which name is correct:

A spokesman for New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner told The Daily Caller that what’s become known online as “#Weinergate” is an attempt by conservatives to cause a “distraction” and that the congressman’s office is considering its options on what to do next.

The imbroglio started Friday night when Weiner’s official “verified” Twitter account sent a photo of a man’s erect penis underneath gray boxer shorts to a woman in Washington State. Both Weiner and his spokesman, Dave Arnold, have stated that the lewd photograph made it onto the congressman’s Twitter account as result of a hacking of Weiner’s Facebook and Twitter profiles.

Weiner’s office told TheDC that they won’t allow this issue to become a distraction and that they are “consulting on what steps” they can take regarding the hacking.

“This is intended to be a distraction, and we’re not going to let it become one. Anthony’s accounts were obviously hacked,” said Arnold. “He doesn’t know the person named by the hacker, and we will be consulting on what steps to take next.”

Oh well...
