Disgraced congressman, notorious pervert, and long-time Hillary Clinton ally – Anthony Weiner – pled guilty in court to sending obscene material to a minor.
The Daily Mail reported:
Anthony Weiner wept in court on Friday while begging for forgiveness as he entered a plea of guilty to a single charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.
‘I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse,’ Weiner told the court, while agreeing to accept any prison sentence of less than 27 months and register as a sex offender.
Weiner’s day in court came eight months after DailyMail.com revealed that the disgraced Congressman had been exchanging sexually-charged messages and explicit photos with a 15-year-old high school student in North Carolina.
The exchanges began in January of last year after the teenager reached out to Weiner on Twitter, and continued through the late spring.
Weiner was 51 and still married to Huma Abedin when he sent the texts and images to the minor female, during a time when his primary responsibility was the care of his son Jordan, now 5, while Abedin was on the campaign trail with Hillary Clinton.
Prosecutors are recommending that Weiner serve a two-year sentence as part of the deal.
Recently a Secret Service agent was sentenced to 20 years in prison for doing the same thing. Why is it that Anthony Weiner gets a much easier sentence?
