There are no excuses for this. Not only was he married, which has obviously meant nothing to him since the beginning, but this girl was FIFTEEN YEARS OLD. Let’s hope he gets some jail time for this. This is unacceptable.
Anthony Weiner carried on a months-long online sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl during which she claims he asked her to dress up in ‘school-girl’ outfits for him on a video messaging application and pressed her to engage in ‘rape fantasies’, DailyMail.com can exclusively report.
The girl, whose name is being withheld by DailyMail.com because she is a minor, said the online relationship began last January while she was a high school sophomore and before Weiner’s wife, Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin, announced she was ending their marriage.
Weiner was aware that the girl was underage, according to DailyMail.com interviews with the girl and her father, as well as a cache of online messages.
In the online messages, Weiner, 51, sent bare-chested photos of himself to the underage girl, repeatedly called her ‘baby’ and complimented her body, and told her that he woke up ‘hard’ after thinking about her, according to copies of the conversations.
In one particularly lewd message, he told the teen: ‘I would bust that tight p***y so hard and so often that you would leak and limp for a week.’
When confronted with the claims, Weiner did not deny exchanging ‘flirtatious’ messages with the teen. He declined to comment on the specifics of the allegations on the record, but provided copies of two emails the girl sent him that he contends raised questions about her claims. DailyMail.com publishes them below.
He gave a statement to DailyMail.com in which he says, in part: ‘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 revelation comes just weeks after Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin announced that they had separated in the wake of another sexting controversy.
In August, the New York Post reported on sexual chats between Weiner and a 40-year-old woman, during which the former congressman sent her provocative shirtless photos of him while his four-year-old son was curled up next to him in bed.
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.
‘If there’s anybody out there that has a similar story that they can come forward, maybe use my daughter’s example to have the courage to come forward,’ said her father, whose name is also being withheld to shield the girl’s identity.
He explains that he did not contact authorities to report Weiner because his daughter asked him not to. ‘I agreed because her mental health is in jeopardy and I didn’t want to exacerbate anything that she has mentally going on.’
Through interviews and a collection of online messages from applications such as Twitter, Facebook, Kik, and Confide, DailyMail.com has pieced together a timeline of Weiner’s relationship with the underage girl.
The girl first reached out to Weiner on the evening of January 23, 2016, when she noticed his Twitter page allowed non-followers to contact him through direct private messages.
She told DailyMail.com she was interested in politics and had heard about his sexting scandals, and was curious to see what he was like.
It was clear from the messages that she was encouraging Weiner to engage with her in a sexual manner. She told DailyMail.com she didn’t consider Weiner her boyfriend, but thought the relationship was a ‘romantic’ one.
She acknowledged during interviews that she had developed an obsession with Weiner, and sought him out on Twitter in January while trying to write a book about him. She said she continued to write the book as their relationship developed.
‘Why did I message you [in January]?’ the girl wrote in an email to Weiner last week. ‘I was studying you- for a book of course. You were my Hannibal Lecter.
‘I wanted to know what made you tick. As we chatted, I pretended to not know EVERYTHING about you. I didn’t want to appear suspicious.’
She also told Weiner: ‘I was obsessed with you.’
Weiner quickly messaged her back, and they struck up a conversation about the large snowstorms that had hit New York and the girl’s home state.
The messages started out as small talk, and during their conversation the girl noticed that Weiner had also found her profile on Facebook and sent her a friend request.
‘Where do you go to school?’ Weiner asked her.
‘[Redacted] High School,’ she responded.
DailyMail.com has learned that the NYPD Special Victim’s Unit is looking into possible charges resulting from the sexting email exchange between a 15-year-old high school and Anthony Weiner.
