NEW YORK — Former Congressman Anthony Weiner is in more trouble for his online activity — this time for allegedly having a monthslong online sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl, according to a report.
The Daily Mail interviewed the girl and her father, who also provided screen shots of texts and photos sent between the two on the messaging app Confide in February and March. The app automatically deletes messages and images after the first time they are read or viewed.
The new revelation hits just weeks after Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin announced the couple had separated after yet another sexting scandal.
The story contains extensive details many might find disturbing.
The girl, whose identity the Daily Mail is not revealing, said she told Weiner she was underage and messages she provided to the Daily Mail support her claim.
The girl said Weiner would ask her to dress up in school uniforms and be part of “rape fantasies.”
She also said Weiner asked her to undress and encouraged her to touch herself and say his name over video chat.
Weiner declined to comment on the specifics of the allegations to the Daily Mail, but provided copies of two emails the girl sent him that he contends raised questions about her claims.
“I have repeatedly demonstrated terrible judgement about the people I have communicated with online and the things I have sent,” Weiner said in a statement. “I am filled with regret and heartbroken 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.”
