Anthony Weiner was a member of the House of Representatives, representing New York from 1999 to 2011. He resigned from this position over a sex scandal involving messaging with multiple women including a minor. He is married to Huma Abedin, a close aide of Hillary Clinton.
Role on #Pizzagate
In his latest sexting scandal, Weiner was accused of sexting a 15-year-old girl. It is unclear whether he intended to meet the minor in real life for sexual relations, but that is the working presumption. Devices owned by Weiner and Abedin were seized by the NYPD as part of the investigation into this incident.
