Anthony Weiner is a politician, who married Huma Abedin in 2010 and separated in 2016 after multiple events of his sexting young women had been published.


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.[1][2][3]

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.[4]

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."[5]

Internet censorship

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."[6]
