Sexting scandal inspires Anthony Weiner doll
An online action figure company has jumped on the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal bandwagon with a doll of the New York congressman in two versions: censored and uncensored.
HeroBuilders.com of Oxford, Connecticut, is offering the "standard" doll for US$39.95 (NZ$49) and the anatomically correct "for adults only" version for an extra US$10 (NZ$12.25).
Both are dressed in a gym shirt and shorts with a label that reads "Tweet This."
Weiner has acknowledged exchanging messages and photos that ranged from sexually suggestive to explicit with several women online.
Congress this week approved a two-week leave of absence for Weiner while he seeks treatment.
The action figure company also makes a plastic Sarah Palin, Barack and Michelle Obama and other talk-of-the-town figures.
US President Barack Obama said he'd resign if he were in Weiner's shoes.
