(Newser) – The office of scandalous sexter Anthony Weiner needs to be sanitized—literally. Newly elected congressman Rob Turner's family was horrified to find the former House member's toothbrush in his old office bathroom, and ordered a thorough cleaning. “Weiner left his toothbrush behind! It literally says ‘Anthony’ on it,” an insider tells the New York Post. “We made the assumption who Anthony was.”

A registered nurse, Turner's wife Peggy asked congressional cleaners to sanitize the bathroom. The family also discussed replacing Weiner's carpeting and his office chair—the very seat where Weiner tweeted naked pics and crotch shots of himself before resigning in June amid a sexting scandal. But Turner dismissed the notion that he would redecorate, and says Weiner hasn't scared him away from Twitter, either. "I do have a Twitter account," he says. "But I will use it fully clothed."
