The Administration for Children’s Services has launched an investigation into Anthony Weiner after a New York Post report exposed that the disgraced former Democratic congressman had sexted vulgar photos of himself while his toddler son was lying next to him in bed.

A New York City government official confirmed the probe into Weiner’s treatment of the child on Wednesday, the Post reported.

An ACS official visited Weiner’s apartment Tuesday, a worker at the building told the Post. Agency protocol requires a home visit within 48 hours of an offense to ensure that a potentially endangered child has food to eat and a place to sleep.

Weiner denied that an ACS visit occurred.

Screenshots of the conversations between Weiner and the unidentified West Coast woman revealed an explicit dialogue that began in January 2015 and continued through August 2016.

Hours after the Post published the selfie of Weiner’s crotch while his son was wrapped in a green blanket to his left, his wife and top Hillary Clinton aide, Huma Abedin, announced the two were separating.

Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 in the wake of a separate sexting scandal and ended his 2013 New York City mayoral bid after reports of similar behavior surfaced.
