Anthony Weiner Allegedly Caught Sexting a 15-Year-Old
Wednesday, The Daily Mail reported that former Congressman Anthony Weiner has been engaged in sexually explicit conversations via text messages with an underage girl since January of this year. According to the report, Weiner sent photos and very sexual suggestions as to what he liked. The teenager confessed that she had felt bad for Weiner as he had stated he had not had sex with his wife, Huma Abedin, who is Hillary Clinton’s top aide. Abedin filed for divorce after another sexting scandal erupted in July.
The young woman also reported that Weiner had rape fantasies that he wanted to act out with the young woman dressing in a school uniform. She stated, “He had some rape fantasies,” she said. “It would just be him showing up at my house when my dad was out of town. And just start undressing me, being forceful, asking me if I want to be dominated, strange questions.” She stated that she would change the conversation when he spoke of these encounters as they made her very uncomfortable.
The exchanges between the two were not only messaging but also video chats. The girl stated in her statement to the Daily Mail that, “We would talk, just chatting for about 30 minutes and it would lead to more sexual things…asking me to undress…he’d comment on my body. He asked me about masturbation, and that kind of thing.”
In a statement to the Daily Mail, Weiner did not deny the accusations instead he offered this statement, “I have repeatedly demonstrated terrible judgement about the people I have communicated with online and the things I have sent. I am filled with regret and heartbroken for those I have hurt.” The young woman said that she confessed what was going on to her father in April of this year, but she continued a relationship with Weiner but tried to be more careful.
That changed in July when it was reported that Weiner had been sexting another woman. In that case, he sent an explicit photo of himself while his child was asleep next to him in bed. “After seeing what he did with his son having him in the picture that was released, I think that he’s very disgusting and he needs help,” the girl said.
The girl’s father had a few choice words for Weiner for what he did with his daughter. “There wouldn’t be any words,” the man said after being asked what he would do if he saw Weiner in person. “There would be no words. I hope I never come in contact with him. I’ll be in jail if I come into contact with him.”
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters, according to the New York Daily News, “If the reports are true, it’s possibly criminal and it is sick.” He also stated that, “And frankly, I’ve heard enough about Anthony Weiner and I think that goes for all New Yorkers.”
