Downfall Of Anthony Weiner

Child welfare officials are investigating Anthony Weiner after he was caught sending sexually-charged selfies with his young son lying next to him, according to the New York Post.

The Post also broke the news that Weiner sent the photo earlier this week and is now citing "a city government source" who claims the Administration for Children's Services has launched a probe into Weiner.

According to the Post, ACS showed up to Weiner's New York City apartment on Tuesday to check on the boy's wellbeing.

Weiner famously quit Congress in 2011 when he was caught sending other women sexually explicit messages and his wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, stood by him until the latest incident.

"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband," Abedin said in a statement released by the Clinton campaign on Monday. "Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy."

The Post referred to Weiner as a "disgraced ex-congressman" that has been sexting with a "busty brunette" and claims he "sent her a lurid crotch shot with his toddler son in the picture."

The women, who spoke to the Post on a condition of anonymity, provided photos and screen shots of their conversation. She told the paper that they've never met in person, despite Weiner's repeated invitations.

Abedin is considered Clinton's closest friend and advisor, and has worked for the Democratic nominee for the majority of her adult life. She was recently profiled in a lengthy Vogue article by Nathan Heller that called her "the engine at the center of Clinton's well-run machine."

Earlier this year, "Weiner," a documentary about the troubled politician, was released to critical acclaim.
