Anthony Weiner is under scrutiny for allegedly sending a lewd photo to a female college student over Twitter, The Washington Post reports.

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has become the latest member of Congress to run into Twitter trouble after a lewd photo was sent from his account on the microblogging site Friday night.

The photo, which was taken from the waist down and shows a man in bulging gray underwear, was first reported early Saturday by BigGovernment.com, the Web site of conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart.

The Web site reported that the message containing a link to the photo was tweeted to the Twitter handle of a woman who is a journalism student in Seattle, and that the student apparently deleted her Twitter and Facebook pages after the incident.

Soon after the photo was posted on Weiner’s Twitter account, it was deleted, BigGovernment.com reported, along with the other photos in the seven-term congressman’s yfrog.com photo account.

In tweets after the photos were deleted, Weiner, 46, said that his account had been hacked and jokingly brushed off the incident.
