A Splinter reporting collaboration with the Gizmodo Media Group Special Projects Desk has revealed that, according to records filed with the State of New York, Anthony Scaramucci is 5'7".
Scaramucci’s driving abstract, a summary record issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles, indicates that the SkyBridge Capital founder and short-lived White House communications director is not 5'8", as was reported on Heavy.com, a popular website for celebrity height speculation, and repeated by Scaramucci himself in a comment to Splinter.
Here is a copy of that document. We have redacted Scaramucci’s personal information:
Height, as listed on a state drivers license, is self-reported.
At publication time, Scaramucci had not yet responded to a request for comment.
Update: Scaramucci responds through Twitter direct message: “That height was measured in 1981 when I was 17... Fun story but it’s fake news!”
