Breaking from The Politico—
A Weiner spokesman said the tweets were neither explicit or indecent… to the young teenager.
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) admitted to tweeting an underage girl today.
The Politico reported:
New potential Twitter-related troubles arose for Rep. Anthony Weiner on Friday, after Delaware police reportedly spoke with a 17-year-old high school girl about “direct online communications” she’s had with the disgraced congressman.
Weiner confirmed the communications late in the day, but denied that anything inappropriate took place. The late-afternoon report by Fox News said New Castle County police officers showed up at the girl’s house at about 4:30 p.m., while a crew from the cable TV network was there.
The police “asked to speak with the girl’s mother about the daughter’s contact with Weiner,” Fox News reported, adding that one of the network’s reporters happened to be there when the cops showed up.
The visit by the police was later confirmed by POLITICO. The girl, whose name was withheld by Fox but who told the reporter she’s “doing OK,” left with her mother and the police, the network said, although it was unclear if there was a further conversation somewhere else.
