(Newser) – The National Enquirer is ratcheting up the embarrassment factor on To Catch a Predator host Chris Hansen. The tabloid that exposed his alleged affair also says he sexted the woman involved, reports the Daily Mail. (The Enquirer piece itself isn't online.) The DM describes two racy photos sent by Hansen to Kristyn Caddell from his cell phone. Maybe the worst part for him: "Insiders" say the photos made her laugh.

The Anthony Weiner comparisons already are rampant. "This makes no sense," writes Irin Carmon at Jezebel. "The guys on To Catch A Predator get in trouble because they send photos to internet accounts they believe belong to minors, not because they're cheating on their wives with an apparently consensual adult partner."
