Anthony Weiner sentenced to 21 months in prison

In September past year, his victim said she had exchanged lewd messages with Weiner for a number of months and also accused him of asking her to undress on camera. However, there is one unusual message from Weiner himself. He must report to prison by November 6.

The email exchange doesn't show a response from Clinton.

I cried when Hillary Clinton lost to Barack Obama. I was the last person to endorse Barack Obama.

The FBI acted after finding a batch of her emails on a computer belonging to Weiner, forwarded by Abedin.

In June 2014, Weiner was getting attention just by favoriting a tweet about Tinder.

Weiner, after all, used to serve as the Democratic Party' proud and loud bombastic, arrogant pitbull.

He tried to restart his political career two years later by entering the race for mayor of NY but squandered his bid after revelations that he had continued to sext even after publicly apologising for other illicit transgressions. However, another sexting scandal brought him down and his poll numbers tanked.

Weiner's lawyer Arlo Devlin-Brown asked the court for a more lenient sentence, claiming that Weiner was "at the depths of an uncontrolled sickness" which he "has made enormous progress in addressing", and casting his underage correspondent as a schemer "looking to generate material for a book". Clinton has blamed Comey in part for her defeat.

As well as his prison term, Weiner was also fined $10,000 (€8,400) and must enrol in a sex-offender treatment programme. Weiner dropped his head into his hand and wept as his sentence was announced.

Calling himself "a very sick man for a very long time", Weiner tearfully apologized to the teen and sought to assure the judge he had finally learned his lesson.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Kramer told a Manhattan federal court judge Tuesday that Weiner on three occasions in 2016 asked a 15-year-old girl to display her naked body online and to perform for him.

A disciple of Chuck Schumer, the former congressman and now Senate minority leader, Weiner is a Brooklyn native and was the youngest person ever elected to the City Council in 1991. Perhaps one reason why Secretary Clinton and Ms. Abedin became close friends is the feelings they shared born of the public humiliations and hard choices both women were forced to make to maintain their dignity and political careers.

"This man is going to be the death of me", Abedin said, according to Clinton. The scandal was Weiner's third major sexting scandal, the first of which cost him his congressional seat in 2011 and the second of which derailed his 2013 NY mayoral campaign (when it emerged he was using the pseudonym "Carlos Danger").

The disgraced politician pleaded guilty back in May to sending inappropriate messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.
