Anthony Weiner to Plead Guilty to Resolve Sexting Inquiry

Source: NY Times

Anthony D. Weiner, the former Democratic congressman whose “sexting” scandals ended his political career and embroiled him in a tumultuous F.B.I. investigation of Hillary Clinton before the election, is to appear in a federal courtroom in Manhattan on Friday to enter a guilty plea.

The information has not been made public but was related by two people who have been briefed on the matter and asked not to be identified.

Mr. Weiner will plead guilty to a single charge of transferring obscene material to a minor, pursuant to a plea agreement with the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan, one of the people said. Mr. Weiner surrendered to the F.B.I. early Friday morning.

4. The fact that Anthony Weiner continues to exist

is proof that Hillary probably doesn't arrange for problems to disappear.

After this past election, he should be very suspicious if any Democrat invites him over for tea.

Anthony Weiner pleads guilty to sexting teenage girl and faces prison sentence

Associated Press in New York
Friday 19 May 2017 16.38 BST

Former congressman Anthony Weiner has pleaded guilty to transmitting sexual material to a 15-year-old girl and faces years in prison.

Weiner agreed Friday not to appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months in prison. The judge told him he would have to register as a sex offender.

In court, Weiner cried as he apologized to the teenager with whom he exchanged sexually explicit texts.

“I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse,” the former Democratic congressman said.
