Doing his part to ensure New York-based politicians have the best reputation ever, Anthony Weiner was NY office-holder -representing his way right into rehab for sex addiction. Weiner’s extramarital affairs, which he conducted even while his wife was pregnant with his child, were discovered when he accidentally published a racy photo of himself on Twitter that was meant to be sent to one of his mistresses privately.
Though he and the woman that the picture was meant for initially denied any wrongdoings, Weiner eventually admitted that he had been stepping out on his wife in a surprise afternoon press conference. Chat transcripts of his sexts and numerous women talking to the tabloids led to his resignation as U.S. Representative of New York City’s 9th congressional district (covering parts of Brooklyn and Queens). He checked himself into therapy for his problems soon after.
