New York Child Services Investigating Anthony Weiner

Anthony WeinerThe New York Post reported Wednesday that New York City’s child services have opened an investigation into former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner.

“The Administration for Children’s Services has launched a probe into the disgraced ex-pol’s care of the boy,” The Post reported, citing “a city government source.” In the most recent sexting scandal, Weiner took a picture of his bulging namesake while lying in bed next to his toddler son.

“ACS showed up at Weiner and estranged wife Huma Abedin’s Union Square apartment building on Tuesday, a worker there confirmed,” the Post continued. “Such visits are meant to ensure that a possibly endangered child has a room to sleep in and food to eat, the government source said.”

The news is sure to at least please Politico reporter Glenn Thrush. “I covered child welfare and foster care in New York City. That kind of thing would, in a low-income family, prompt a child welfare investigation,” he said presciently on The Hugh Hewitt Show Monday.
