Anthony Weiner Pleads Guilty in Child Sexting Case
Former congressman Anthony Weiner pleaded guilty to exchanging sexually explicit texts with a 15-year-old girl. Weiner allegedly cried, apologizing to the girl, saying, “I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse.” The disgraced politician will now have to register as a sex offender. Weiner came under investigation last year when the 15-year-old told tabloid news the 52-year-old Democrat had exchanged sexual material with her over the course of months, and accused him of asking her to undress on camera. Weiner could now face jail time for transmitting sexual material to a minor.
