Weiner has repeatedly engaged in sexting - the sending of sexually explicit images - to women. The first exposure of this conduct was carried out by Andrew Breitbart.
On September 21, 2016, the Daily Mail published an article claiming that Weiner had engaged in sexting with a 15-year-old female, and devices owned by Weiner were seized as part of an investigation into this incident.
In an interview published on Breitbart News Daily on 4th November 2016, the founder of Blackwater, Erik Prince, points out that according to one of his well-placed sources in the New York Police Department: “Because of Weinergate and the sexting scandal, the NYPD started investigating it. Through a subpoena, through a warrant, they searched his laptop, and sure enough, found those 650,000 emails. They found way more stuff than just more information pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing” - additionally: “The NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making” in the Anthony Weiner investigation, but received “huge pushback” from the US Justice Department.
Misuse of funds
Anthony Weiner was hit with a total of $64,956 in fines after being found guilty of misuse of funds, prompting one comment that he was "becoming a caricature of himself."
When Anthony Weiner discovered the home addresses of undercover officers, he proposed a bill that would make such disclosures illegal, stating in a press conference that "Free speech does not include the ability to terrorize officers."
