Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner is again at the center of scandal, this time with his illicit online activity tied to the FBI probe of Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information on email. When the New York Democrat’s sexting was first uncovered in 2011, news reports said Weiner was investigated for contact with a Delaware teen.
“Detectives were made aware of alleged contact between Congressman Anthony Weiner and an area teen,” New Castle County Police said in a statement. “Detectives have conducted an interview with the teen and she has made no disclosure of criminal activity nor inappropriate contact by the congressman.”
Pressed for answers on the Delaware allegations as he ran errands in the New York City borough of Queens on Saturday, Weiner told reporters: “Nothing explicit, nothing indecent. Absolutely nothing inappropriate.”
After it became known this past September that Weiner may have sent sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old, Fox News also reported that “police investigated Weiner in 2011 after it emerged he was messaging a high school junior in Delaware … A Weiner spokesperson said the interactions with the 17-year-old girl “were neither explicit nor indecent.” Anyone under the age of 18 in Delaware is considered a minor, however, Weiner was not charged with a crime at the time.”
