Disgraced former New York congressman Anthony Weiner has been caught red-handed yet again in the third sexting scandal involving the one-time NYC mayoral candidate since 2011.

Weiner, who had represented New York’s 9th District in the US House of Representatives, was forced to resign in 2011 after it was revealed he had maintained online sexual relationships with at least six women. Revealing photographs of the congressman he had sent during the course of these virtual trysts were later released during the course of the initial sexting scandal.

Married to senior Clinton aide Huma Abedin, Weiner’s behavior derailed what had hitherto been considered a promising career in New York politics.

In 2013, Weiner attempted to reboot his career, entering the New York City mayoral election. In the midst of the Democratic primary, however, Weiner’s campaign was undermined by a second sexting scandal.

A young woman involved in the online romance revealed photographs Weiner had sent, and disclosed his online alias – “Carlos Danger”.

Despite a second public apology and pledge to cease actions, Weiner has again been embroiled in a sexting scandal, after someone posing as a female college student chatted online with the former congressman, even receiving his private phone number.

During the online conversations, Weiner again sent photographs of himself and indulged in his own unique brand of boasting, comparing himself to a mongoose.

Speaking with the New York Post, Weiner acknowledged the chats, and doubled down on the mongoose reference.

“I can confirm that I am indeed deceptively strong like a mongoose.”

On Monday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump ripped Weiner, calling him “pervert sleaze”, noting his ties to Clinton’s inner circle.

"What about the fact that Huma Abedin — who knows every single thing about Hillary Clinton, she knows more about Hillary than Hillary knows — and she's married to a pervert sleaze named Anthony Weiner, who will send anything that he has out over Twitter.”
