Former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D., N.Y.) has been found sexting again, this time with his toddler son lying next to him in bed, the New York Post reported.
Weiner, who resigned from Congress in 2011 and later saw his 2013 New York mayoral bid derailed over similar behavior, is married to top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Weiner sent the explicit messages over Twitter to an unidentified woman on the West Coast who sent him pictures as well:
The stay-at-home cad shot the revealing photo while discussing massage parlors "near my old apartment" shortly after 3 a.m. on July 31, 2015, a screen shot of the exchange shows.
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.
The messages were explicit:
At one point, she sent him a shot of herself wearing a pair of black tights with a rip in the rear, near the midline, along with the message, "Buns of steel."
"I’ll need a bigger hole," Weiner responded, adding a smiling emoji with its tongue sticking out.
The sext fiend also admitted to fantasizing about her, saying "guess who visited me in a dream last night/this morning . . . uh, you. obv."
In another message, he blamed her for keeping him awake the previous night. "I did not sleep well . . . Horny as f–k," he wrote.
When she suggested it was a "disease," he wrote back: "You are a carrier."
He even confessed to masturbating while thinking about her, calling her "literally a fantasy chick."
"And I mean literally. So now you know how I got to sleep last night," he wrote, adding a purple demon emoji.
Weiner’s relationship with the woman continued on for quite some time, with screen shots showing the chats began in January 2015 and continued through August 2016, according to the woman in question.
Weiner told the Post he and the women have been "friends for some time." After the story was posted late Sunday, the Hill found that Weiner appeared to have deleted his Twitter account.
