Convicted sex offender and New York ex-congressman Anthony Weiner spotted at children’s park in the Hampton’s

DISGRACED former-Rep. Anthony Weiner was spotted with his son at a children's park in the Hamptons this weekend — despite being a registered sex offender.

“Strange but true. Just saw Anthony Weiner at a children’s park in Sag Harbor with his kid,” a source told The New York Post's Page Six. “I noticed him before he put his mask on."

Weiner is a registered sex offender after having served time for sending explicit photos to a 15-year-old girl in 2016.

The former congressman represented New York's 9th district, having taken over from current Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer when Schumer won his Senate race in 1999.

Weiner was well-liked by the voting population, winning seven terms between Jan. 1999 and June 2011, and never receiving less than 60 percent of the vote.

He was also well-connected, as his wife, Huma Abedin, has long served as one of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's top aides. Former President Bill Clinton even officiated their wedding. The couple is currently estranged after Abedin filed for divorce, but then withdrew the motion.

The ex-representative has a number of sexting scandals under his belt, resigning from office in 2011 after racy photos he sent to a woman was publicized on Twitter.

On May 29, 2017, the rep pled guilty to another unrelated sexting charge after sending a sexually explicit image to a minor. He was sentenced to 21 months in jail, paid a $10,000 fine, and had to register as a sex offender.

He began his federal prison sentence in Nov. 2017 and was released from prison to a halfway home in Feb. 2019. He subsequently was released from the home in May 2019.

Page Six also reported earlier this year Weiner had lobbied to be allowed on his son's school grounds. Parents were vocal in their opposition, as he was only allowed as far as the school gates.

Weiner declined to comment to Page 6.
