Parents at a "fancy" school in New York City are outraged that Anthony Weiner, sent to prison for sexting a 15-year-old, may be allowed on campus, reports the New York Post.

The disgraced former Congressman as been seeking permission to be allowed onto the grounds of the school – which the Post declined to name – where his 8-year-old son is a student.

School policy prohibits him from passing through its gates because he is a convicted sex offender.

Weiner served 16 months in prison as a result of the sexting scandal. He was sentenced in 2017 and is a registered sex offender.

Weiner wants to be allowed onto school grounds to pick up his son and attend paretn-teacher conferences and other events. The school board is taking his plea into consideration.  

"Parents are very upset. The school has kids that are 16 and 17," an insider with knowledge of the situation told the Post’s Page Six.   

Shortly after his release from prison, Weiner moved into an East Village apartment down the hall from wife Huma Abedin, who filed for divorce in 2017 but then withdrew her petition the following year. The decision to do so was reportedly for the sake of their child.  

Generally, sex offenders are not permitted to be on school grounds but under New York State regulation allow exceptions, Page Six reported. 

A sex offender could be allowed onto school property if they have a child attending the school, but this would only apply under certain circumstances and the final decision belongs to the school board.
