Anthony Weiner Fantasizes About Sexual Abuse With 15-year Old Girl in Sexting Scandal
I was surprised to see an article in Vogue about Hillary Clinton’s right-hand help, Huma Abedin, a woman seemingly on top of the world, literally, until I read she was married to Anthony Weiner. Weiner, oh the possibilities of jokes about that name forecasting his troubles are legendary, has had sexting scandals before. Abed in had said in the Vogue article, after she thought the sexting scandals were over, that having her son was the “best thing” for she and Anthony.
I thought it strange that a woman so driven would constantly sublimate her own desires for a crackpot husband who engaged in sexting, but then Abedin is working for Clinton, another woman who seemed to be consumed with pleasing her husband even as his extramarital affairs came to light. Abedin had said that Anthony was basically a stay-at-home-dad and that she couldn’t do her job if it weren’t for him, and while Vogue characterizes Abedin’s work right now as “the campaign of a lifetime,” Abedin’s husband is stupid enough to think his pedophilia wouldn’t be outed.
Weiner had been sexting with a 15-year old girl, knowingly saying he wanted her to engage in “rape fantasies.” And it wasn’t just a one-time thing, or an accidental age mistake, compounded by the internet. The girl told Weiner she was 15. To the girl, it was romantic, this important man taking an interest in her. To the rest of us, Weiner was outed for the pedophile he is.
Weiner has faced a number of sexting scandals since 2011, when he was forced to resign from Congress after his online sexual messages with a female college student were revealed.
Another sexting scandal in 2013, involving 22-year-old Sydney Leathers, derailed his bid for New York City mayor. In the course of that scandal, his alias Carlos Danger was disclosed.
The former congressman has faced scrutiny over online chats with minors in the past.
In 2011, he admitted to sending five private Twitter messages to a 17-year-old girl, but said the messages ‘were neither explicit nor indecent’. The girl’s family told the New York Times that the conversation appeared to be harmless.
DailyMail.com reached out to the 15-year-old girl’s family earlier this month after receiving information about her relationship with Weiner.
Although the girl said she did not want to press charges because she believes her relationship with Weiner was consensual, she and her father agreed to sit down for an interview out of concern that Weiner may be sexting with other underage girls.
What’s a woman on a mission to the White House to do? Divorce him the way she should have years ago. And now the NYPD Special Victims Unit is beginning its investigation.
While Weiner claims it was all a “hoax,” sounding remarkably like he feels he was set up, his knowledge that the online personality was 15 is proof enough that he shouldn’t be above investigation.
‘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.
‘While I have provided the Daily Mail with information showing that I have likely been the subject of a hoax, I have no one to blame but me for putting myself in this position.
‘I am sorry.’
At least he claims regret and blames no one but himself. That’s some small consolation, if there is any in this situation.
