Anthony Weiner. In June 2011, then New-York Rep. Weiner resigned after someone used his Twitter account to send suggestive photos to some of his female followers. Weiner eventually fessed up that he had been having inappropriate online relationships with women he met through social networking sites. Weiner disappeared from the spotlight for a bit, but was a potential New York mayoral candidate.
