The teenage girl that sexted with Anthony Weiner is coming forward in an exclusive interview with Inside Edition. The full interview will air on September 11th.
They first made contact when she was only 15 years old via Twitter in January of last year.
“I just sent him a nice message, ‘Hello, I’m a huge fan,'” she recalled. “How soon after did he respond?” Inside Edition’s Diana McInerney asked. “Minutes,” she said.
As reported by Inside Edition:
The teenager said she contacted Weiner when his wife — Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin — was at the peak of her influence. Weiner’s proximity to the presidential candidate was what drew the teenager to him, she said.
“I knew that Hillary Clinton would be running for president in the year 2016,” she said. “I wanted to see if Anthony was still up to the same antics.”
After messaging him, it quickly turned from niceties, she said.
“I knew that it was going downhill really fast,” she said.
In one image Weiner sent, he was shirtless with his son.
“I was disgusted,” the girl said. “That’s part of the reason I came forward.”
Freaking gross, dude. She’s 15… The girl stated that part of the reason she came forward was how uncomfortable he made the entire thing. Shirtless, with his son, and other such poses.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
The FBI came to the girl’s home in September 2016 with a subpoena and “collected all of her electronic devices and any messages pertaining to Anthony Weiner.”
In the meantime, FBI took all of Weiner’s gadgets, including a infamous laptop used by his wife, Abedin. This is when emails relating to Hillary Clinton were found, “which led FBI Director James Comey to reopen the investigation into Clinton’s private email server, just eleven days before the presidential election.”
The experience has been overwhelming. She says her family has moved to another town and she’s now being homeschooled.
