Former New York congressman Anthony Weiner reportedly sent sexually explicit photos and texts to a woman on multiple occasions in the past 19 months, the New York Post reports. Weiner allegedly tried to get the woman to meet him, and sent her multiple images, including a photo of his crotch with his toddler visible on the bed beside him:

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.
