Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account appears to be deleted after new sexting allegations about Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin’s husband grace the cover of Monday’s New York Post.
The Post refers to Weiner as a “disgraced ex-congressman” who has been sexting with a 40-something brunette and claims he sent her "a lurid crotch shot with his toddler son in the picture.” Other screen shots provided to the Post include discussion of massage parlors near Weiner's old apartment.
According to the Post, Weiner was nervous that he accidentally posted the image publicly and since the story was published, his Twitter account has been taken down.
The women, who spoke to the Post on a condition of anonymity, provided photos and screen shots on their conversation. She told the paper that they’ve never met in person, despite Weiner’s repeated invitations.
One photo features an aroused Weiner lying in bed with his young son next to him.
Weiner, a Democrat, has been involved in various sexting scandals that derailed his once-promising political career. Weiner served in the U.S. House of Representatives representing New York's Ninth District from 1999 until 2011. That year, Weiner sent a sexually explicit photograph of himself via his public Twitter account. After initially denying the post was from him, Weiner admitted sending the image and formally resigned June 21, 2011.
Abedin has stood by him, but a new scandal at a crucial time for the Clinton campaign could become a major distraction for Clinton’s most-trusted advisor.
Weiner admitted he and the woman “have been friends for some time” when the Post asked for comment. Earlier this year, “Weiner,” a documentary about the troubled politician, was released to critical acclaim.
