Sydney Leathers: Weiner's sexting sentence like a 'birthday gift'


In spite of the right course of action by the Department of Justice in this particular case, there are two pending cases, in Florida and New York, where a close friend and donor of the Clinton's and Weiner's, and registered level 3 New York City sex offender, far more unsafe and influential than Mr. Weiner, remains free and without any online supervision. In three video chat sessions, Weiner "used graphic and obscene language to ask the minor victim to display her naked body and touch herself, which she did".

His lawyers had asked he be sentenced to probation instead of jail.

His soon to be ex-wife, Huma Abedin, did not attend the hearing at the Manhattan Federal Courthouse.

In 2011, it lead him to resign his House seat, in 2013 it doomed his run for NY mayor, and in 2016, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents found damning evidence while investigating his contact with the teen.

Weiner exchanged sexually explicit messages with the girl for months beginning in January of 2016.

A weekly overview of the chatter from Kensington Palace and beyond.

In 2013, Weiner re-entered the spotlight and ran for mayor of NY, portraying himself as a reformed man and campaigning with his wife and child. When the FBI found Abedin's email on his computer, then-FBI Director James Comey revisited the investigation into Clinton's use of a private server. He must also register as a sex offender for life for his inappropriate conversations with the North Carolina teen.

Lawyers representing the disgraced congressman portrayed the high school student as a girl who wanted to possibly influence the presidential election.

Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, was the vice chair of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

At first he denied it had been him who sent the message but eventually admitted it and said he would go to therapy.

"I knew this was as morally wrong, as it was unlawful", Weiner said in his guilty plea in court.

It began unfolding six years ago when Weiner accidentally tweeted a photo of his bulging crotch, prompting his resignation from Congress amid revelations the misfire wasn't a one-time transgression.

Weiner dropped his head into his hand and wept as District Judge Denise Cote handed down her sentence on Monday. That review ended two days before the election, and Clinton has blamed Comey's action in part for her loss.

However, two years later she announced she was leaving him, after the New York Post published a story about more explicit texts the politician sent that year, with one photo showing Weiner in his boxer briefs while in bed with his toddler son by his side.
