Rep. Weiner gets an action figure

OXFORD, Conn., June 14 (UPI) -- A Connecticut company has created an action figure of embattled U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., that comes in both PG-13 and R-rated versions.

Herobuilders of Oxford said the Anthony Weiner action figure released Monday comes in a PG-13 version dressed in gym clothes with "Tweet This" printed on his shorts and an anatomically correct R-rated version "for adults only," the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.

The figures join other merchandise created in the wake of Weiner's picture-sending indiscretions on Twitter, including T-shirts, mugs and bumper stickers.

Paul Madison, founder of dating Web site SugarSugar.com, issued a public statement offering $50,000 to Weiner's private parts to serve as spokesman for the site.

"Despite vigorous efforts, Mr. Weiner has not responded to my ministrations," Madison said.
