Anthony Weiner, the Jewish New York politician who has become a sexting joke that refuses to go away, is back in the news amid reports that he sent a lewd photo of a bulge in his underoos to a woman, with his 3-year-old son sitting next to him.
Weiner, whose wife Huma Abedin has been campaigning with Hillary Clinton, sent the picture on July 31, 2015, according to the New York Post, which has published the picture and a series of cringe-inducing and emoji-laden online exchanges with an unnamed woman.
Weiner, whose correspondence with the woman frequently involved explicit sexual references, wrote “someone just climbed into my bed.”
“Really?” she replied.
He then sent a picture of him in his underwear, clearly aroused, next to his son.
“You do realize you can see you[r] Weiner in that pic??” the woman, who also sent him pictures in her underwear, wrote back.
Weiner, once considered an up-and-coming star in the Democratic Party, was forced out of politics in 2011 after it emerged that he sent a simiar picture of a bulge in his underwear to a woman, using the name “Carlos Danger.”
A mayoral bid in 2014 failed after he was caught continuing to sext other women.
He has recently been put back in the spotlight by a documentary about his attempted comeback and his wife’s work on the presidential campaign.
