Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)
(CNSNews.com) -- Because former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) reportedly "sexted" a picture of his crotch while his four-year-old son was sleeping next to him, the president of the Catholic League, Bill Donohue, has filed a Report of Suspected Child Abuse or Maltreatment with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services.
"As president of the nation's largest Catholic civil rights organization, I am well aware of the plague of child sexual abuse that marks virtually every sector of society, including, regrettably, the Catholic Church," said Donohue in an Aug. 31 press release. "I am writing to express my concerns about the emotional and physical well being of Jordan Weiner, son of Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin."
"The New York City Administration for Children's Services defines child sexual abuse to include 'incest, rape, obscene sexual performance, fondling a child's genitals, intercourse, sodomy, and any other contact such as exposing a child to sexual activity, or commercial sexual exploitation such as prostitution of a minor or production of pornographic materials involving a minor,'" reads the press release.
"Enclosed find a front-page story in the August 31 edition of the New York Post on the sexual exploitation of four-year-old Jordan Weiner by his father, Anthony Weiner," said Donohue.
"On August 29," he continued, "we learned that Mr. Weiner took crotch shots of himself sporting an erection with his son lying next to him in bed. That was disturbing enough, but now we know that he used his child as a 'chick magnet' to allure sexual relationships."
In conclusion, the release states, "It would appear that Mr. Weiner's sexual exploitation of his child meets the definition of child sexual abuse as defined by the Administration for Children's Services. Please investigate this matter."
In the complaint, Jordan Weiner, age 4, is named as the child in the household of Anthony Weiner, 51, and Huma Abedin, 40. "Sexual Abuse" is marked for the Basis of Suspicions. The document was signed by William Donohue on Aug. 31, 2016. (See Complaint: child_abuse_complaint.pdf )
