Former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has deleted his Twitter account after a new round of sexting photos were published in the New York Post. The article hit the internet late Sunday night, and Weiner's account had vanished by early Monday morning.
One of the pictures published in the article shows an underwear-clad Weiner laying in bed next to his son, prompting disgust, outrage, and concern. Many were wondering if these new images (and the fact that their toddler-aged son was involved) meant that his wife, Huma Abedin, would kick him to the curb once and for all. Abedin is Hillary Clinton's top aide.
Weiner was forced to resign from the House of Representatives in 2011 following his accidental tweet of an explicit picture of himself. Since then, Weiner has repeatedly found himself in sexting scandals as he attempts to rebuild a career in politics. He claimed to have undergone therapy in 2012. He ran for mayor of New York City in 2013, but that bid was effectively derailed when it was revealed that Weiner had continued his sexcapades under the pseudonym "Carlos Danger."
Perhaps it's for the best that Weiner's Twitter days appear to be over.
