Anthony Weiner’s latest round of sexting — allegedly with a 15-year-old girl — has caught the attention of top sex crimes authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the New York Daily News reports.
On Thursday, CNN reported that the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office issued a subpoena for Weiner’s cell phone and other records.
Weiner, who has used the name “Carlos Danger” in his long and public history of lewd online exchanges, allegedly sent raunchy photos of himself to a North Carolina teen.
The U.S. Attorney in North Carolina, Jill Westmoreland Rose, is also “reviewing materials relevant to the matter.”
The multiple probes may mean the disgraced former congressman — whose sexting trouble dates back to 2011 — could face federal or state charges.
This time, officials stepped in after the DailyMail.com published an interview with the girl in which she described how Weiner asked her to undress and touch herself while on Skype, among other lascivious social media communications, which allegedly went on for months.
Last month, Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin — an aide to Hillary Clinton — left him after a newspaper published a sexy photo he sent another woman — one in which their young son was visible.
BRAD’S BAD PARENTING?
Here’s the latest in the Brangelina brouhaha and it’s not good: Brad Pitt has been accused of being “verbally abusive” and getting “physical” with one of his children on the family’s private plane, according to People.
But the magazine also reported Pitt did not strike the child during a heated mid-flight argument with Angelina Jolie last week.
Could the conflict be the reason why Jolie — who spent 12 years and had six kids with Pitt — filed for divorce, just weeks after their two-year wedding anniversary?
The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is investigating Pitt, 52, after the alleged incident was reported to them anonymously.
A source close to Pitt told People the actor “was drunk, and there was an argument between him and Angelina” and “there was a parent-child argument which was not handled in the right way and escalated more than it should have.”
The source added, “He is emphatic that it did not reach the level of physical abuse, that no one was physically harmed.”
Connecticut authorities ruled that the death of Mia Farrow’s 27-year-old son, Thaddeus Wilk Farrow, was suicide. … On a lighter note, Food Network’s “Halloween Wars,” which begins on Sunday, features sculptor and expert pumpkin carver James Hall, an Alameda resident, among this season’s contestants.
