Donahue Asks For Weiner Probe
Bill Donohue has asked the New York City branch of the New York State Office of Children and Family Services to investigate Anthony Weiner for sexually exploiting his four-year-old child, Jordan; HumaAbedin, Weiner’s wife, is cited in the complaint.
Dear Sir or Madam:
August 31, 2016
As president of the nation’s largest Catholic civil rights organization, I am well aware of the plague of child sexual abuse that marks virtually every sector of society, including, regrettably, the Catholic Church. I am writing to express my concerns about the emotional and physical well being of Jordan Weiner, son of Anthony Weiner and HumaAbedin.
The New York City Administration for Children’s Services defines child sexual abuse to include “incest, rape, obscene sexual performance, fondling a child’s genitals, intercourse, sodomy, and any other contact such as exposing a child to sexual activity, or commercial sexual exploitation such as prostitution of a minor or production of pornographic materials involving a minor.”
Enclosed find a front-page story in the August 31 edition of the New York Post on the sexual exploitation of four-year-old Jordan Weiner by his father, Anthony Weiner. On August 29, we learned that Mr. Weiner took crotch shots of himself sporting an erection with his son lying next to him in bed. That was disturbing enough, but now we know that he used his child as a “chick magnet” to allure sexual relationships.
It would appear that Mr. Weiner’s sexual exploitation of his child meets the definition of child sexual abuse as defined by the Administration for Children’s Services. Please investigate this matter.
