Former congressman Anthony Weiner, who has infamously grappled with sexting scandals in the past, has done it again: this time favoriting a tweet about how a popular hookup application “will now be the ultimate sext machine.”

Weiner, whose bid for New York City mayor was sunk by his most-recent sexting scandal, favorited a tweet sent from Vox’s executive editor.

In a comment to BuzzFeed, which first noticed the interesting online behavior, Weiner said he was not sure how the tweet was favorited.
