New Delhi: After a public apology and an official resignation as a Congressman pertaining to his lewd photographs sent through his personal social media account, US politician Anthony Weiner has been dragged into the limelight again, all for the same reason.
Weiner was caught sexting another woman while his wife was out campaigning for former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Public fumed over image of him standing against a mirror with his 4-year-old son in the background.
In the selfie clicked by Weiner, a bulge is seen in his white boxer as his son sleeps next to him in a green blanket. The aghast woman who was chatting with Weiner expressed her consternation with the picture.
The Post mentioned what exactly happened between him and the woman:
"Weiner was clearly aroused by his conversation with the 40-something divorcee when he abruptly changed the subject.
“Someone just climbed into my bed,” Weiner wrote.
“Really?” she responded.
Weiner then hit “send” on the cringe-inducing image, which shows a bulge in his white, Jockey-brand boxer briefs and his son cuddled up to his left, wrapped in a light-green blanket.
“You do realize you can see you[r] Weiner in that pic??” the woman wrote.
Moments after forwarding the photo, Weiner freaked out over the possibility he had accidentally posted it publicly — just as he did during the infamous episode that forced him to resign from Congress in 2011."
Weiner attracted untoward media attention on 2011 when he was caught circulating obscene pictures of himself to multiple women through his social media account. Though he says that he has seen a therapist, there is little to hint that the former Congressman has had a lesson learnt.
