At about 8 a.m. today, Anthony Weiner, former representative of New York's Ninth Congressional District, unsuccessful mayoral candidate, and reformed sexy texter, had 27 Twitter favorites.

They included some tweets about hockey (he's a fan) and some compliments on his new-ish BusinessInsider.com column (he writes about politics and hockey).

Oh, and at least six photos of this Orange County, California woman , who goes by ParisDylan550 on Instagram and ParisRoxanne0 on Twitter.

We don't know much about Paris, except that she's lovely. She poses not infrequently in her underwear and has some 41,000 Instagram followers who are thrilled every time she does. While Weiner doesn't have an Instagram, he favorited several Instagram links Paris posted to Twitter, including a link to this photo , which features her in her underwear and a Bob Dylan T-shirt. (Her Instagram profile declares her as "Future Mrs Bob Dylan.")

She may be a New York Rangers fan.

Weiner's Twitter favs are on the minds of the New York press corps this morning, after Buzzfeed's Andrew Kaczynski noticed the former Congressman had favorited a link to a story about Tinder and sexting, two words Anthony Weiner should try to stay far, far away from:

A scroll-through of Weiner's other Twitter favorites circa 8:30 revealed a plethora of Paris, but on a 9 a.m. refresh, his favs had been wiped clean. (To my eternal chagrin, I didn't grab a screenshot before they vanished.) But a cached version of his Twitter page shows that he had 27 favorites yesterday -- albeit not what they were. If memory serves, he'd favorited the Dylan undies shot and at least five others, including this one:

 

While Weiner's Twitter history suggests that he was a fan of Paris Roxanne, it looks as though she's also a fan of his. Paris tweeted at the pol back on July 28, 2013, five days after his second sexting scandal broke, to let him know he's "so cute":

(Update, 1 p.m.: Paris appears to have deleted that tweet, so we've replaced the embed with a screenshot we took earlier today.)

She was also a fan of his mayoral campaign on Facebook, liking everything from his profile photos to the driest posts about the U.S.'s rates of uninsured people:

Paris hasn't responded to a request for comment from the Voice. But Anthony Weiner did.

"Yep, there were a bunch of favorites there that I either didn't recognize or mean to favorite," he told us via email at 9:30 this morning. "I'm not clear on how they got marked in the first place but I assume hit the little star thing accidentally as I scrolled through stuff."

And who among us hasn't done that at least 27 times?
