I SAT THERE watching the television screen as Anthony Weiner squirmed before the microphones for the second time in two years, and realized that this was a déjà vu moment. At first I thought it was because the former congressman and aspiring mayoral candidate was, once again, apologizing for tweeting and cheating without really meeting. And then I took one look at Weiner's wife and realized that this had absolutely nothing to do with the fellow. Huma Abedin might have creamy olive skin, beautiful brown eyes and long dark hair, but you don't need to put her in a pantsuit and slap a headband on her tresses to realize that we are now in the presence of Hillary Clinton, version 2.1. We all remember the pre-Senate, pre-State Department Hillary who inspired both awe and revulsion for her assault on the East Wing.

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has admitted sending inappropriate photos and texts to women online even after the exposure of that behavior forced his resignation from Congress two years ago. The Daily News asked Sexcetera columnists Steve & Mia what they make of Weiner's kinky obsession and what advice they would give to Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin. Steve: Take away his cellphone. Mia: Nah, that's too easy. A creep like Weiner probably has a couple of phones tucked away.

OH, BALLS! There's a decent chance that those words entered the mind of New York congressman Anthony Weiner yesterday afternoon as he lost his grip on an embarrassing Twitter-related scandal that threatens to ruin his career. The married pol admitted at a news conference that he lied last month when he claimed that someone hacked into his Twitter account and sent a photo of a man's bulging crotch to a college student in Seattle. "To be clear, the picture was of me and I sent it," he said, ending 10 days of vague answers to questions about the bulge.

On Sunday night Baxter, who's been seen in hip-hop and R&B videos, in a few movies and as a model for King and other mags, was seen looking quite cozy with DeSean Jackson at the Eagles wide receiver's birthday party at G Lounge (111 S....

Hustler kingpin Larry Flynt has reached out to Anthony Weiner to offer the former congressman a "serious" job with his company, TMZ.com is reporting.

NEW YORK - Anthony Weiner said yesterday that he'd traded racy messages with as many as three women since similar sexting forced him out of Congress. As he tried to tamp down questions about his behavior, a poll suggested the new disclosures were taking a toll on his mayoral prospects. Weiner, the former congressman who resigned in 2011 after the first batch of sexts surfaced, is running for New York mayor and had been near the top of most polls of the Democratic primary race until the latest furor over his behavior began this week when gossip website The Dirty posted explicit messages that a woman said she and Weiner sent each other starting in July 2012.

WASHINGTON - House Democrats are counting on growing pressure from Rep. Anthony Weiner's colleagues, a suggestion from the president, and the return of Weiner's pregnant wife from an overseas trip to persuade him to resign over a sexting scandal in which he sent lewd photos of himself and messages to several women. The House's top Republican, Speaker John A. Boehner, on Tuesday joined the chorus of Democrats calling for the New York Democrat to quit. House Democrats went behind closed doors for their regular party meeting, but they decided against taking action against Weiner in hopes that he would resign soon.

Nominally, New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner is running against City Council President Christine Quinn and several others for the Democratic nomination. More essentially, he is taking on the idea that our leaders are subject to any standards whatsoever. Finally, and fortunately, he appears to be losing both contests. A recent poll suggested that voters are at long last abandoning him - along with his own campaign manager, who quit this week. The seemingly one-of-a-kind "sexting" scandal that got Weiner kicked out of Congress two years ago engulfed him a second time last week, when it became clear that he had continued vigorously distributing dirty self-portraits across cyberspace well after he claimed to have begun his atonement.

How was Anthony Weiner so easily able to find such willing sexting partners? Even conceding that Weiner's pecs were pretty impressive when he took off his shirt, this is nevertheless the embodiment of the geeky guy we all grew up with who struggled with girls. Sure, his quick thinking and tart tongue probably earned him a few points with ladies, but not to a level that could account for the online action he seems to have scored. What's more, each of the women identified thus far is relatively young and attractive, at least according to the photos they themselves published online.
