No, this is not an old article. The cover of yesterday's New York Post features Anthony Weiner allegedly caught up in yet another sexting scandal, complete with yet another Weiner pun.
According to the Post, the former congressman and New York City mayoral candidate was sending direct messages on Twitter about massage parlors with a "40-something divorcee" and Trump supporter on July 31, 2015. Then, he added, "Someone just climbed into my bed." He then sent an explicit photo of himself wearing boxer briefs, his son laying next to him, unaware. "You do realize you can see you[r] Weiner in that pic??" the woman wrote.
"Ooooooh . . . I was scared. For half a second I thought I posted something. Stop looking at my crotch," Weiner responded, afraid he made the same mistake that led to his resignation from Congress in 2011. "Whatever. You did it on purpose. O I see you thought you posted on your TL [public timeline] not DM [direct message]. S–t happens be careful," she replied, warning him about something he knew all too well.
Weiner responded to the report by saying that he and the woman "have been friends for some time […] She has asked me not to comment except to say that our conversations were private, often included pictures of her nieces and nephews and my son and were always appropriate."
But the report claims that he sent various shirtless photos, explicit messages, and photos that were very similar to the ones that got him caught the first time. Since the report surfaced, Weiner's Twitter account is no longer active, Politico reports. Weiner, of course, is married to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton and a vice-chair of her campaign. The couple was featured in the documentary Weiner, though he claims Abedin never consented to being included in the film.
Just today, Huma Abedin has announced her separation from Anthony Weiner. Read her full statement below.
