The photo, which shows a man’s genitals, was published by a website after conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart showed it to the hosts of Sirius XM radio’s Opie & Anthony Show.
Separately, officials say Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, is pregnant. A spokesman at the State Department, where she is a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, had no comment, but several Democrats said the couple had told their friends.
