Former congressman Anthony Weiner appears intent on showing that he is without a single redeeming quality. Long a favorite of liberals for his acerbic attacks on the right, Weiner lied when he was first accused of sending naked unsolicited pictures to women. He attacked the media and denied everything until the proof became insurmountable. He then professed shame, resigned from Congress, and promised to reform. Later he ran an embarrassing mayoral campaign, though not without liberal supporters who continued to defend him. He was then outed again as “Carlos Danger,” this assumed name in sending new texts. He again faded away with promises of reform. Friends gave him jobs as a political commentator and even a public relations expert. He was then shown to be again sexting this year, including pictures showing his infant son. After his wife (Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin) left him, it has now been revealed that Weiner has been sexting a 15-year-old girl and allegedly knew that she was a minor. In the most recent scandal, Carlos Danger has emerged as “T Dog.” On this occasion, however, Weiner could have crossed the line into criminal misconduct.
The girl was a high school sophomore and began her communications with Weiner last January. Once again, Weiner is denying the story, though not necessarily denying that he did text the girl. Instead, he is quoted as saying that he had “likely been the subject of a hoax.” Given his earlier lies and attacks on the media and others, Weiner should not be surprised by the general lack of credibility cited by observers. Yet, Weiner apparently insists that he was set up — the very same claim that he made when he was a member of Congress and first caught in his sexting fetish.
Screenshots reportedly show the girl discussing her high school and Weiner asking about the school under the alias “T Dog.” This included Weiner allegedly talking to the girl about masturbating with him and his rape fantasies.
If Weiner knew the girl was 15 and sent any sexual or nude images, he could be changed. Indeed, the state consent age is 17. Here is the law for the highest level of offense:
S 235.22 Disseminating indecent material to minors in the first degree.
A person is guilty of disseminating indecent material to minors in the
first degree when:
1. knowing the character and content of the communication which, in whole or in part, depicts or describes, either in words or images actual or simulated nudity, sexual conduct or sado-masochistic abuse, and which is harmful to minors, he intentionally uses any computer communication system allowing the input, output, examination or transfer, of computer data or computer programs from one computer to another, to initiate or engage in such communication with a person who is a minor; and
2. by means of such communication he importunes, invites or induces a minor to engage in sexual intercourse, oral sexual conduct or anal sexual conduct, or sexual contact with him, or to engage in a sexual performance, obscene sexual performance, or sexual conduct for his
Disseminating indecent material to minors in the first degree is a
class D felony.
Carlos Danger or T Dog may find that his political problems have become criminal matters if these allegations are true.

Wein. The name of Vienna in German. He is from there. When his ancestors got off the boat at Ellis Island the clerk interposed the town for the last name.
He is not a Weener like you Americans would say.
But. He is a weenie.
Oh, stop with the lectures on morality and decency. When you’re talking about the Clintons, Weiner, Huma Abedin, and their ilk, morality, decency, and the law have no place in the discussion. Those things are irrelevant to them. Just what do you think Bill Clinton is going to be doing if Hillary Clinton is president? Of course, you know. Debauchery, lechery, and all sorts of new crimes, misdemeanors, and corrupt acts will be the order of the day. So why get all hypocritical about it, apart from the natural leftist tendency to do so? Simply embrace it, enjoy it, and know that, in your own way, you are doing your part to destroy what remains of civilization.
This guy is severely flawed. Despite evident political talents, he has insisted upon shooting himself in the foot (or someplace), repeatedly. He could have had a long and distinguished political career, but the fellow in his pants was calling the shots. Pathetic.
I honestly do not get why people continue to support him. I mean, after the first set of massively creepy incidents, he got a second chance with a (barely credible) campaign for Mayor. And now this?
What does it take to convince his supporters that he’s irredeemable?
This probably did the convincing ….
The man’s 52 years old. He’s had no occupation other than electoral politics or being a staff member to elected officials. He has had no vocational training (state college BA in some academic or arts subject, I forget which). His marriage looks for all the world like a weird business arrangement bar that he’s produced a child. He has this disgusting hobby that he will not give up no matter the grief it causes him. What a train wreck of a man.
Maybe he should take up plumbing, welding, or TV repair?
Oops fingers too big for key board.
Why do you think Michael Savage changed his name. He knew people would have lots of fun with Michael Seiner.
Perhaps we need a Sex Offender Watch List similar to the Terrorist Watch List and the No Fly List. The latter two work so well. Call it the Weiner Watch List (his profile is perfect) and anyone deemed to be creepy goes on the list. Yeah, that will work. It might shut down some Hollywood big shots but yeah, that could work.
Weiner and his wife make the Clinton’s look like a functional marriage.
David Garth was asked in 1977 why he referred to Ed Koch and Bess Myerson as ‘the Smith Brothers’. His reply: “Two beards, schmuck”.
From what I have read, until about a year ago Huma was trying very hard to make a go of it with her marriage. But then she “cut him off” and perhaps this escapade with the teenager was the result. And divorce will follow. But she should have bailed on him when this behavior first surface back in the Carlos Danger days.
I’m sorry I couldn’t resist.
I’m sure Mr. Weiner will stick it out and make it through this difficult time.
Professor Turley, did you see this yet?
USA Today: Gayle Manchin wife of Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. used position to boost EpiPen sales
After Gayle Manchin took over the National Association of State Boards of Education in 2012, she spearheaded an unprecedented effort that encouraged states to require schools to purchase medical devices that fight life-threatening allergic reactions.
The association’s move helped pave the way for Mylan Specialty, maker of EpiPens, to develop a near monopoly in school nurses’ offices. Eleven states drafted laws requiring epinephrine auto-injectors. Nearly every other state recommended schools stock them after what the White House called the “EpiPen Law” in 2013 gave funding preference to those that did.
The CEO of Mylan then, and now, was Heather Bresch. Gayle Manchin is Heather Bresch’s mother.
Mylan is the subject of congressional investigations related to huge price hikes the company announced last month. It also faces an antitrust probe by the New York attorney general stemming from its EpiPen sales contracts with schools.
Bresch is testifying before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday at a hearing called by …
Carlos Danger and Mrs. Carlos Danger should go to jail. She is an accessory before and after the fact.
Please explain about Huma. Do you really think the Weiner was confiding all his exploits to her?
Mr. Weiner demonstrates the convergence of the British and American definitions of the word “Sleaze.”
If probable cause is established then this will be a testament to whether or not the political class’ criminal justice is more favoring than that of an ordinary citizen.
I hope this will not be defer, defer, and defer until the case magically goes away.
