Doll of US lawmaker in Twitter scandal is released, in censored and uncensored versions

  • Print

NEW YORK, N.Y. - An online action figure company has jumped on the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal bandwagon with a doll of the U.S. congressman in two versions: censored and uncensored.

HeroBuilders.com of Oxford, Connecticut, is offering the "standard" doll for $39.95 and the anatomically correct "for adults only" version for an extra $10.

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 on Monday 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.

Obama on Monday said he'd resign if he were in Weiner's shoes.
