Weiner Admits Tweeting with Minor, Says Wasn't 'Indecent'

By John Stanton
Roll Call Staff

Rep. Anthony Weiner sent private electronic messages to a 17-year-old Delaware girl but maintains there was nothing inappropriate in his communications with her.

In a statement to Roll Call Friday evening, the New York Democrat's spokeswoman Risa Heller said, "According to Congressman Weiner, his communications with this person were neither explicit nor indecent."

Heller's statement comes after the New Castle County Police Department questioned the girl Friday afternoon, according to Fox News, which said it had reporters present at the home when police arrived.

Weiner became a "follower" of the girl, who is 17, on Twitter in April, and subsequently sent her direct messages. The content of those messages was unknown Friday.
