Anthony Weiner reportedly carried on long sexting relationship with 15-year-old girl

Terrible husband and father Anthony Weiner is making a strong case that he’s also just a terrible human being, according to the sordid new details in a report by The Daily Mail. The 51-year-old disgraced former congressman engaged in a monthslong online relationship with a 15-year-old high school student, the report says. Like his previous indiscretions, this one, according to the accusations, was highly sexual in nature and featured him sending bare-chested photos of himself to the girl and carrying on explicit conversations.

The girl, who is not identified in the Daily Mail report, said the online relationship began back in January, months before Weiner’s latest sexting scandal was exposed and prior to his separation from Huma Abedin. The two were acquainted after the girl contacted him over Twitter to say she was a fan. Screen shots of the girl’s exchanges with Weiner indicate he knew that she was in high school and underage — and that did nothing to stop him. Following a similar pattern in previous sexting scandals, Weiner made numerous lewd and suggestive remarks and encouraged her to engage in “rape fantasies.” Much of Weiner’s comments were based on her young age, including suggestions that she wear sexy “schoolgirl outfits.”

When confronted with the claims, Weiner did not deny having participated in “flirtatious” exchanges with the girl, but suggested instead that he was subjected to a “hoax.” In a statement, he said, “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.”

The exchanges took place using a number of messaging platforms and the girl said Weiner shared details about his marriage to Abedin with her, and the two eventually would chat over Skype. Last month, New York’s child protective services office launched a probe of Weiner after he sent sexually-charged photos of himself that featured his young son lying in bed next to him to another sexting partner. The Daily Mail also spoke to the girl’s father about discovering that Weiner had engaged in a long sexting relationship with his daughter.
