NEW YORK CITY — Child-welfare investigators will look into the behavior of disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner after he sent a photo of his son in a lewd message to a woman, according to a report.
The Administration for Children's Services launched its probe following revelations from the New York Post that Weiner had again started online dalliances with women, the tabloid reported.
ACS spokeswoman Carol Caceres wouldn't confirm or deny the Post report, citing confidentiality.
"In order to protect children and their privacy, ACS does not comment on specific cases or allegations of child maltreatment, regardless of whether or not allegations have been reported, are being investigated, or have not resulted in an investigation," Caceres said.
Weiner, who lives near Union Square, sent a woman shirtless photos of himself lying in bed beside his son, according to the Post.
Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, stood by his side through two similar sexting scandals which ruined his career as a congressman and his run for New York City mayor. On Monday she announced that she would leave him hours after the Post story was published.
Weiner resigned his congressional post in 2011 when he admitted to tweeting lewd photos of himself to several women.
He was caught again doing the same thing, but under the pseudonym Carlos Danger, while running for mayor in 2013.
