Weiner’s sexts on display at Museum of Sex

The sexts that ended New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner’s career in Congress are now on display at the Museum of Sex in New York.

The Associated Press reports that the exhibit, which has been running since February, will continue through September 2, eight days before the mayoral primary.

The exhibit is called Universe of Desire, and looks at the way the “digital experience” has changed sexuality. It features “a larger-than-life Facebook conversation between Rep. Anthony Weiner and Blackjack Dealer Lisa Weiss,” according to the museum’s website.

Weiner, a former Democratic congressman, is among a crowded field of candidates vying to succeed Michael Bloomberg as New York City mayor. In 2011, he resigned from Congress after it was revealed that he tweeted a picture of his erect genitalia in boxers at a woman. He initially claimed his Twitter account had been hacked, but later confessed to having sent similarly sexually graphic images to multiple women via Twitter. Over the course of his mayoral campaign, he has acknowledged his past misbehavior and apologized for it multiple times.

A Marist Poll from June 26 found Weiner to be the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, leading City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who was previously thought to be the frontrunner, 25 percent to 20 percent.

The mayoral election is November 5.
