Here we go again.
After torpedoing his political career with two nearly identical sexting scandals, former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has allegedly been sending lewd texts and selfies to yet another woman, according to a New York Post report out Sunday.
Screen shots provided to the Post by the woman, who chose to remain anonymous, reportedly date back to January 2015 and continued up through this month. Weiner is married to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton.
After sending one lurid shot that allegedly shows Abedin and Weiner’s 4-year-old son in the background, the former New York congressman reportedly said he was “scared” that he had accidentally posted it publicly.
The woman who provided the screenshots told the Post that she had never met Weiner. The former congressman told the newspaper that he and the woman “have been friends for some time.”
In 2011, Weiner’s sexting habits became known to the world after he posted a photo of his crotch to his Twitter feed accidentally. The incident forced him to resign from Congress. A 2013 effort to rehabilitate his image and get back into politics by running for New York City mayor was derailed by a second sexting scandal. An adult film star named Sydney Leathers revealed that Weiner exchanged sexts with her under the pseudonym Carlos Danger.
A 2016 documentary, “Weiner,” recounted the ups and downs of the ex-congressman’s rollercoaster of a political career.
