It looks like the long arm of the law will finally put Weiner away. After a deluge of scandals and crimes, Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former congressman and New York mayoral candidate was sentenced in an underaged sexting case.
Weiner was notoriously caught sending lascivious tweets and solicitations via Twitter back in 2011, which ultimately resulted in his expulsion from Congress. Despite all the mea culpas and claims of turning over a new leaf, the pervert just couldn’t keep it in his pants, as the nude photos and sexting continued. Eventually, his degeneracy devolved into approaching an underaged girl, which got us where we are today.
As reported at the New York Post, Weiner was sentenced on Monday to 21 months in prison for manipulating a high school girl to undress and touch herself via Skype last year.
“This was a serious crime. It’s a serious crime that deserves serious punishment,” Manhattan federal Judge Denise Cote said as the convicted sex offender buried his head in his hands and wept.
While Weiner’s family were present in the courtroom, his future ex-wife, Huma Abedin, was not in attendance. She had more important things to do, like arrange Hillary Clinton’s shoe closet.
On top of his prison sentence, Weiner will have to fork over $10,000 for his crime, participate in sex offender outpatient treatment, and spend three years on supervised release once he’s let out.
Weiner is rather lucky to receive such a light sentence, as he was facing upwards of 1o years behind bars after pleading guilty to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor. During his final comments, before the sentence was handed down, Weiner wept as he pleaded for probation
“If I fail, I know what will happen,” Weiner said. “But with God’s grace, I will not.”
Too little too late, Anthony. Few politicians have received as many chances as this creep. The Left surprisingly stood with the guy for quite some time, despite his predatory behavior towards women. But hey, they’re all about apologizing and covering for sex offenders and serial rapists on the left side of the aisle.
It’s safe to say his political career is dead and buried this time, however. We should all be thankful that another liberal sexual predator has been brought to justice.
