Teen allegedly says she chatted with Anthony Weiner, but Weiner claims hoax
NEW YORK - Former Congressman Anthony Weiner is facing another allegation involving with 15-year-old girl.
The girl sent the Daily Mail screenshots of chats she allegedly had with Weiner. She also claims her sexting and skyping affair with the former congressman began in January.
Weiner has released a statement saying:
"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 heartbrokend 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."
theDailyMail.com posted an interview with the teenage girl and said it concealed her identity because she's a minor. According to the girl, her conversation with the congressman started before his marriage with Huma Abedin ended. She also admitted she initially reached out to Weiner by direct messaging him, and said he responded immediately.
During the alleged affair, a 40-year-old woman says Weiner even sent her a picture of him in his boxers in bed. His 4-year-old son was in the picture sleeping next to him.
According to the Daily Mail, Weiner "sent bare-chested photos of himself" to the teenageer and "repeatedly called her baby and complimented her body." It also said, "it was clear from the messages that she was encouraging Weinger to engage with her in a sexual manner."
