Former congressman and estranged husband of prominent Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, has checked into a sex addiction facility after multiple sexting scandals, one of which included lewd conversations with an underage girl, according to a report from MailOnline.

The facility he is attending has strict rules such as no electronic devices, the separation of men and women, and involves extended counselling on issues such as pornography, cybersex, and anonymous sex, it has been revealed.

His decision to check into a sex addiction facility follows another revelation from MailOnline in September that the former New York Congressman had been sending explicit photos to a 15-year-old girl in which he allegedly talked about his “rape fantasies.”

A federal grand jury consequently began to investigate the case, which revealed that Weiner shared a computer with his wife Huma Abedin, leading to the FBI’s decision to re-investigate Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server.

It was revealed in the latest WikiLeaks data dump that Clinton’s team were concerned about Weiner’s relations with young girls as early as 2011.

The story of Weiner’s sexual exploits was first revealed on this website by the late Andrew Breitbart in 2011, which at the time forced Weiner to resign from congress.
