Shamed Ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner Called Son His Own 'Chick Magnet': Report
Just when you thought the latest Anthony Weiner scandal couldn't get any creepier, a new front page headline has the disgraced former congressman sinking to a new low, calling his son a “chick magnet.”
According text messages obtained by the New York Post, Weiner allegedly sent his latest sexting partner a photo of his 4-year-old son with the message: “Already back at work. Being a chick magnet.”
The woman replied: “It’s like a puppy. Chicks love cute kids and puppies.”
He allegedly sexted nine photos including one in bed with his son to the unidentified woman last year. The photos surfaced Monday and quickly became front page news.
On Monday, Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, announced the couple were separating.
In a statement she said: "After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband."
Weiner has been through this scandal twice before. In 2011, the former U.S. Congressman from New York accidentally tweeted a shirtless picture to his followers, leading to his resignation.
In 2013, as he attempted a return to public service as her ran for New York City mayor, but dropped out of the race after another woman's story of sexting with Weiner emerged.
The 2016 documentary Weiner documents his failed comeback attempt and its strain on his marriage to Abedin.
