NEW YORK (AP) - A child welfare agency has begun an investigation into Democratic former New York congressman Anthony Weiner (WEE’-nur) following another sexting scandal involving him.

Weiner confirmed to The New York Times (https://nyti.ms/2bNs9Ve ) on Thursday he has received a letter from the New York City Administration for Children’s Services about the investigation.

The New York Post on Sunday 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 lying on a bed with his 4-year-old son.

Weiner is now separated from his wife, Huma Abedin (HOO’-muh AB’-uh-deen), a top aide to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Weiner also is a former New York mayoral candidate. He quit Congress in 2011 following revelations he was sending women sexually explicit messages.
