    The split between the former congressman and his wife became public knowledge Monday but people who know them save they've already been apart for some time. Gus Rosendale reports. (Published Monday, Aug. 29, 2016)

    A child welfare agency has begun an investigation into former New York congressman Anthony Weiner following yet another sexting scandal.

    Weiner confirmed to The New York Times on Thursday that he had received a letter from the New York City Administration for Children's Services about the investigation.

    On Sunday, the New York Post published photos it said Weiner had sent last year to a woman he had never met. It said one of the photos showed Weiner in his underpants while lying on a bed with his 4-year-old son.

    Weiner is now separated from his wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

    The Democrat and former New York mayoral candidate quit Congress in 2011 following revelations that he was sending women sexually explicit messages.
