Anthony Weiner has been caught up in another sexting scandal.
SEXT fiend Anthony Weiner has been caught up in another sexting scandal, describing himself as “like a mongoose” in the flirty chat.
Weiner boasted of his animal prowess — claiming he was “deceptively strong … like a mongoose” — and gave his mobile phone number to a college student during a flirty, private online chat on a recent trip to Los Angeles, The New York Post has learned.

But the joke was on him, whose wife, Huma Abedin, is a top aide and close confidante of Hillary Clinton. The target of his online affection was really a guy.
A young Republican-turned-“catfish” baited the disgraced former congressman into chatting about “strappy black heels” and “porn scenes.”
Weiner even made a cornball double entendre about his “staff.”

“Funny scene here,” Weiner writes in one of the Twitter direct messages, sent from his hotel room in LA.
“I moved the TV so I could hear/see it while in the shower. I dropped it. Neighbour complained. Me Towel. TV. Floor. And now concierge on the way.”
The student, a New Yorker using a female friend’s Twitter account and calling himself “Nikki,” responds, “Come out with just the towel on when he/she knocks, would pretty much = a tip for the concierge.”

Weiner answers, “This is definitely a porn set up.”
After “Nikki” says she is leaving work, Weiner embellishes his porn fantasy to include a concierge who is “wearing strappy black heels and just left work to come welcome me to LA.”
Weiner repeatedly refers to himself as a mongoose during the conversation and even posts a mongoose “selfie.”
When “Nikki” jokes about having a staff to get her Ubers, Weiner responds, “I’m pretty sure there’s a ‘my staff’ joke here.”
The flirtation comes to an end when he gives out his mobile phone number and a way to find him.
“Text and I’ll hit that location button thing,” Weiner says, referring to a phone feature that lets users to share their locations.

Weiner admitted to the chat in an e-mail to The New York Post.
“I can confirm that I am indeed deceptively strong like a mongoose,” he wrote.
He also claimed it was a “playful joust with an obvious catfish” — a term for a prankster who poses as another person online to romantically lure a target.
The latest social-media fail could be an embarrassment for Adebin, who’s on the campaign trail trying to get Clinton into the Oval Office.
It’s the third time Weiner has been caught sexting. The first was a misfired sexually explicit tweet that led to Weiner resigning from Congress in 2011. The second incident, with Sydney Leathers, torpedoed Weiner’s 2013 mayoral campaign.
Anthony Weiner and Sydney Leathers were sending sexually explicit tweets to each other.
The “catfish,” who heads a Republican club at his NYC-area college, called Weiner an easy mark.
“The first time was the charm,” he told The New York Post. All it took was to retweet one of Weiner’s posts and add a comment.
Within 20 minutes, Weiner responded.
“The amount of effort this took was the most alarming thing given his history,” he said.
“I was trying to think how to get him to say something stupid without making it so obvious.”
