WASHINGTON (AP) - As members of Congress got back to work Monday in Washington, one seat was empty.

New York congressman Anthony Weiner started his temporary leave of absence. The married Democrat requested the time off after admitting sending lewd photos to several women online and then lying about it.

He is in treatment at an undisclosed location for an undisclosed disorder. Additional photos of Weiner have surfaced. The photos posted Sunday on the gossip website TMZ were purportedly taken in the House members' gym.

What do you think?  Now that Rep. Anthony Weiner has decided to get help for his online escapades, do you think sex addiction therapy is a legitimate treatment?  Take our web poll.
