Anthony Weiner featured in Museum of Sex exhibit

NEW YORK (AP) — Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner figures prominently in an exhibition at New York’s Museum of Sex.

That’s no surprise.

The former congressman left office two years ago amid a scandal in which he tweeted himself out of his job by sending a photo of his bulging underpants.

The museum exhibition is titled “Universe of Desire.” It includes words from a Facebook exchange between Weiner and a Las Vegas blackjack dealer in which the Democrat touts his sexual prowess.

Museum curator Sarah Forbes calls Weiner’s words “artifacts of sexuality.”

The exhibit is about human desire as seen through the lens of digital behavior. It runs through September.

Weiner is at the front of a pack of mayoral candidates after admitting to “making mistakes and letting many people down.”
