New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, who is reportedly on his way to rehab, took several snapshots of himself posing at the House Members Gym.
The pictures, obtained by TMZ, show Weiner as clothed and partially dressed. One of the photos reveals the Democrat draped in a towel in front of a mirror, his stomach bulging over the fabric. Another shows him in tank top by work-out equipment. Some photos feature what appears to be Weiner tugging at his crotch.
Congressional sources confirmed to TMZ that the backdrop is the House Members Gym in the basement of the Rayburn House Office Building.
TMZ also confirmed that the pics were sent to at least one female. They were taken in the locker room and on the gym floor.
The #Weinergate scandal intensifies with each new day, as the Congressman came under fire on Saturday for exchanging messages with a 17-year-old girl. Weiner’s spokesperson Risa Heller said that the New York politician’s interactions with the girl “were neither explicit nor indecent,” but he is allegedly seeking treatment regardless.
“Congressman Weiner departed this morning to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person,” Heller said over the weekend. “In light of that, he will request a short leave of absence from the House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well.”
