State Senator says Weiner should be probed
for Child Abuse
New York – A veteran New York politician is demanding city authorities open a probe into the household of Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin for potential child abuse and neglect.
Bronx state Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr., who is also a pentecostal minister, said he was repulsed by the shocking revelation that Weiner sexted a woman a lurid crotch shot of himself with his 4-year-old son in the picture.
“You should know that the Monday, Aug. 29, 2016 cover of the New York Post shows a photo of former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner in his bed alongside his toddler, while doing things that no child should see on camera in Anthony Weiner’s sexual exchange with a woman,” Diaz wrote in an open letter calling on authorities to take action.
“The photo and story worry me as a Senator, a Minister, a parent, and a grandfather, because I believe that the disregard for any boundaries of sexual activity with a child present is incredibly inappropriate, and could have a harmful impact on the child.”
He said, “I urge the City of New York’s Administration for Children’s Services to investigate this case carefully and thoroughly … I am sure that the Administration for Children’s Services will consider how Anthony Weiner’s continued perverted activity that we have all seen over the years in his texting or Twittering is a harbinger of possible future child abuse or neglect, especially when he does this with his child next to him in his bed.”
Diaz said there should no double standard when it comes to child abuse.
“I am pretty sure that if this kind of information was shared with the public and if the adult in the photo with a toddler was Black or Hispanic, the City of New York’s Administration for Children’s Services would have been knocking on the door to investigate possible child abuse to remove the child.”
Diaz called Weiner’s perversion “a very sad situation” and said he would pray for both parents to “acknowledge the harmful effect of this continue activity on their young child, and they will address it with professional help before their child is further victimized by it. I also pray that the Administration for Children’s Services will do their job.”
