Anthony Weiner, a former Democratic Congressman and husband of long-time top Clinton aide, Huma Abedin, will plead guilty to a charge of ‘providing obscene material to a minor,’ according to a report in The New York Times.
Weiner’s main claim to fame has been his obsession with sending pictures of his penis to various women around the country, including one to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.
The charge carries a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison.
The New York Times article outlined the background.
Mr. Weiner was forced to resign from Congress, where he represented parts of Queens and Brooklyn, in June 2011, not long after an explicit picture, sent from his Twitter account, became public. Mr. Weiner initially claimed that his account had been hacked but eventually admitted that he had lied and that he had sent the image and had inappropriate online exchanges with at least six other women.
An effort to resurrect his career progressed in 2013 as he began his candidacy for mayor of New York. But that, too, collapsed after the emergence of additional explicit online messages.

The public became outraged when this sick Weiner sexted an image of his crotch as he lay next to his four-year-old son.
