It is one thing when your wife is mad at you for sexting. Quite another when the FBI gets involved…
According to reports, federal authorities have issued a subpoena for former New York City congressman Anthony Weiner’s cell phone and “other records” following a recent report that the married 52-year-old father had exchanged sexually charged messages with a teenage girl.
CNN reports the office of the delightfully ambitious U.S. Attorney and Turkish meme, Preet Bharara, issued the subpoena, though it’s not clear exactly when that occurred or whether it has been served yet.
The FBI and the New York Police Department have opened preliminary investigations of allegations that the former New York Democratic congressman exchanged sexually explicit text messages with a purportedly underage girl.
A spokesman for the NYPD confirmed that Weiner was being investigated, but did not comment on the charges. The U.S. Attorney’s office declined to comment.
The news of the investigations came one day after the Daily Mail published a story accusing Weiner of exchanging explicitly sexual text messages with a 15-year-old girl. Weiner has acknowledged texting with the girl but claimed on Wednesday that he was “the subject of a hoax.”

Anthony Weiner Sexting With Busty Brunette While Son Was In Bed With Him
While his wife, Huma Abedin, travels the country campaigning for Hillary Clinton, the disgraced ex-congressman has been sexting with a busty brunette out West — and even sent her a lurid crotch shot with his toddler son in the picture, The Post has learned.
The stay-at-home cad shot the revealing photo while discussing massage parlors “near my old apartment” shortly after 3 a.m. on July 31, 2015, a screenshot of the exchange shows.
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.
Moments after forwarding the photo, Weiner freaked out over the possibility he had accidentally posted it publicly — just as he did during the infamous episode that forced him to resign from Congress in 2011.
“Ooooooh . . . I was scared. For half a second I thought I posted something. Stop looking at my crotch,” Weiner wrote back.
“Whatever. You did it on purpose,” she replied.
“O I see you thought you posted on your TL [public timeline] not DM [direct message]. S–t happens be careful,” she added.
The object of Weiner’s affections is his polar opposite politically: a self-avowed supporter of Donald Trump and the National Rifle Association who’s used Twitter to bash both President Obama and Clinton.
Screenshots show the electronic chats began in late January 2015 and continued through earlier this month, according to the woman, who spoke to The Post on condition of anonymity.
And while Weiner repeatedly invited her to visit him in New York City, she said, “We never met.”
