From the first explicit photos to his denial, resignation from Congress, bid for New York mayor and the latest scandal, here's a look at former Rep. Anthony Weiner's last few years in the spotlight:

Anthony Weiner and a "busty brunette out West" (said the Post), following a tip from said brunette.
