Anthony Weiner Sentenced To 21 Months In Prison

The Daily Beast reports:

Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison Monday on federal charges of sending pornography and sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl. “Transmitting obscenity to a minor to induce her to engage in sexually explicit conduct by video chat and photo — is far from mere ‘sexting,'” prosecutors implored the judge.

Weiner pleaded guilty to sending obscene material to a minor in May, with prosecutors recommending a sentence of 27 months in prison. He will also have to register as a sex offender.

Weiner, 53, resigned from Congress after tweeting an explicit photo from his account in 2011. Two years later, sexting revelations derailed his mayoral bid in New York. He continued his reckless behavior even after encountering a high school student, and sexted with a Trump supporter while wife Huma Abedin was on the campaign trail with Hillary Clinton.

    It is a damn shame that more Republicans don’t do time for their crimes, right Donnie?

  • WNY

    On the bright side, he will now be surrounded by plenty of people who would be happy to see his ‘weiner’.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    I can’t take the crazy anymore. Have a great day everyone. I’m heading to a Post-Folsom Rubber Party. About 40 Gay/Lesbian/Straight friends from all over the world. What a wonderful way to escape all this insanity.

    • wds

      Be sure to send Anthony pictures … ROFL .. it might help him with Bubba his horny cell-mate … LOL

  • Ninja0980

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  • Mark McGovern

    The guy was an amazing speaker, and had such great potential. Clearly he could not conquer his demons. I feel bad for his wife, who seems like an outstanding person. More so, I feel bad for his victims.

    • Bubba in TX

      I think his wife left him earlier this year.

      • I watched the documentary about him from last year (or before). I think she took more than most people would have to try to salvage her marriage. He was just going to keep publicly humiliating her.

        • Gigi

          Sad, but very true. She’s better off without him.

        • Bubba in TX

          Yeah, last year was a pretty bad year for her on multiple fronts.

    • Goodboy

      Hypocrites are far worse IMO.

    • Weiner most likely has a paraphilia. He can’t conquer it, it is a serious mental illness. The best he can do, is be in some pretty intense therapy for the rest of his life, and know how to control his pathology.. It is going to be a huge struggle for him.

    • DonnaLee

      He’s somewhat responsible for Hillary losing as well, because he made it easy for people to cast shade at Huma…which then caused the ’email’ problem later.

  • A measly 21 months for sexting with a minor? Now that there is a travesty of justice.

    • Bluto

      Compare with a white male suffering from affluenza receiving 2 months for rape.

      • That was an even bigger travesty of justice.

    • iambu

      And repeatedly demonstrating that he has no self control in this area. If being pilloried by the masses twice didn’t stop him, don’t really see how 21 months behind bars will…

      • Then the only recourse is to lock him into a chastity device, and not allow him to have a smart phone.

        • iambu

          Like, at this point, that seems way more sensible than jail…

    • Goodboy

      Wasn’t this a first time offence with a minor?

      • There shouldn’t be a first time allowance for sex crime with minors!

  • another_steve

    Just to be clear… anyone who’d like to text a picture of his dick to me is welcome to do it.

      I’ll forward your invitation to Trump, another_steve!

            That’s what my cat looked like when I gave her a drop of skim milk instead of Half & Half.

          • Bluto
          • Steverino

            Ha! We have a neighborhood cat at our cabin in the redwoods who craves the half-and-half hubby uses otherwise in his coffee. When he is running low, I try cutting the cat’s portion with skim milk, and kitty is not amused.

            EVERY NIGHT at our place from about 9:00 – 10:00 PM.
            Soft food treat time is precisely at 10:00.

            This is why we feed them their treat at night.

        This photo is not anatomically correct. Well, that part probably is, or maybe it’s an exaggeration. I’m talking about the statue not showing that his belly allows him to stand naked at the front door and still not be obscene (I stole that from Ray Bourbon).

      • another_steve

        Thanks, vorpal.

        Can’t see it even with my reading glasses on. Will have to get out a magnifying glass.

    should have sent him to puerto rico to do something useful.

    • Bluto

      Are they suffering a shortage of penises too?

  • Todd20036

    You know, I agree that Weiner deserves this, but it’s funny. Democrats have to answer for their crimes. Trump raped a child, and the party of family values doesn’t care. Hell, they probably blame the child for seducing him

    • Ninja0980

      Look at Dennis Hassert as well.
      By the time his sentencing came, people knew what he had done.
      And yet countless Republicans asked the judge to be lenient on him anyway.

      • And they all knew. There’s no way he got to be speaker (or even several levels of leadership positions before that) without them investigating him. They at least knew there were allegations (even if they weren’t sure if they were true).

    • bambinoitaliano

      And the child was murdered.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok


        • bambinoitaliano

          Jane Doe or Tiffany Doe alleged at the time she was threatened to stay silence or she and her family will disappear like the 12 year old Maria.

    • They keep throwing Bill Clinton in our faces but I suspect it’s going to be a very long time before any Democrat with a spotty sexual history gets past New Hampshire. Republicans on the other hand….

    • pablo

      Care to back that up with some evidence? Does it seem a tad hypocritical to post such things and then complain about Russia disseminating lies about Hillary Clinton?

  • Lakeview Bob

    If he had been a repulsivecon he wuld have been elected president.

      Uh oh. We may as well start, er.. continue, drinking.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Yep. I am considering Daiquiris for day, Bourbon for night.

      I’d guess about the time Mueller plans an announcement.

      • Jeffrey

        Ive been saying for months that we’d all better get prepared for war when Mueller is done with his investigation.

    • Christopher

      Aren’t we technically still at war with them anyway? We just signed a cease fire.

      From Wikipedia: (First paragraph.)

      “The Korean Armistice Agreement is the armistice which serves to ensure a complete cessation of hostilities of the Korean War. It was signed by U.S. Army Lieutenant General William Harrison, Jr. representing the United Nations Command (UNC), North Korean General Nam Il representing the Korean People’s Army (KPA), and the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army (PVA).[1] The armistice was signed on July 27, 1953, and was designed to “insure a complete cessation of hostilities and of all acts of armed force in Korea until a final peaceful settlement is achieved.”[2] No “final peaceful settlement” has been achieved. The signed armistice established the Korean Demilitarized Zone (de facto a new border between the two nations), put into force a cease-fire, and finalized repatriation of prisoners of war. The Demilitarized Zone runs not far from the 38th parallel, which separated North and South Korea before the Korean War.”

      • Bryan

        Indeed – the Korean War never ended. One of those silly little historical facts Trump keeps insisting can be alternative.

      • Ken M

        I thought that “technically” we we’re never at “War.” Both Vietnam, and Korea were deemed “Police Actions”, since the US was never directly attacked before getting involved.

        • Phil2u

          That is what I remember from history class. Of course, Vietnam was still raging…undeclared as it was.

        • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

          I recall somewhere that only Congress can declare war, in neither Korea nor Vietnam did that technicality take place. Small comfort to the families of the dead and wounded, though.

  • Joseph Miceli

    So, we hold someone who is supposedly from “our” side accountable, and the right jumps all over them.
    When we hold the Cheney’s and the Abramoff’s and all the myriad other offenders on their “side” accountable, the right brushes it off as an anomaly and buries it.
    Weiner will be the face of Democrats on Fox news for some time to come. I think we need to fight fire with fire. How’s Skrelli doing, lately?

    • Phillip in L.A.

      Cheney has been held accountable? Where was I when that happened?!?

      • Joseph Miceli

        The only time that motherfucker will be held accountable is when the devil is showing a pitchfork up his ass .

    • Steverino

      In the Alice Through the Looking Glass world of the GOP, the exception is the rule, and the rule is the exception.

      • Joseph Miceli

        My brain hurts

  • Leo

    OT3. We’ve gotten to the clusterfuck point now in news where I always debate sending stuff to Joe but don’t want to clog his inbox. Then again, Disqus might consider my constant posts here as spam so I’m screwed either way. Whatever.

    • Hank

      I stil do NOT trust Rand Paul!!!!

      • Reality.Bites

        No reason you should.

      • Steverino

        Ayn Rand Paul and Ayn Paul Ryan.

    • Stuart Wyman-Cahall

      Kentucky has their very successful Obamacare exchange known as Kynect. Kentuckians LOVE their state run exchange. But they’re clueless that it’s Obamacare. Rand is safe to vote no because, well, ignorance is…..

      • MichaelJ

        Obamacare was a success in Kentucky because the administration of former governor Steven Beshear, a Democrat in office until December 2015, made sure Obamacare was implemented effectively. The current Republican governor, Matt Bevins, ended Kynect, the state-run health insurance marketplace for individuals.

        • Stuart Wyman-Cahall


    • stuckinthewoods

      Disqus exists for that very reason, so post on. I stopped emailing Joe because I assume if I know something everyone else already does, but don’t worry about breaking Disqus.

  • Gigi

    I used to really enjoy watching his take downs of Republicans. He was smart, sharp, witty and tough. He never shied away from taking them on. He had such promise. If he were a “family values” Republican he could apologize to everyone, while crying, and say that after reading his buy-bull he realized that Gawd had forgiven him and — BAM!! — everything’s okay.

  • Ken M

    Does this mean that size does matter? : -)

  • TJay229

    He’ll probably go to Butner NC and do 19 month’s since he has no criminal history that’s what the guidelines call for.

  • gaycuckhubby

    I don’t think there is much analysis of this right after the election but I think weiner being in the news definitely hurt the Clinton campaign

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      He got 21 months, we got 4 years 🙁

      • gaycuckhubby

        Probably not popular here, but, Clinton should have asked Huma to step aside after he got busted again. It’s not about whats right/wrong but about winning an election

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          Maybe, but it wouldn’t have made any difference.

          • gaycuckhubby

            I think it might

          • Texndoc

            I agree. There was a story push before the election Weiner was going through Huma’s computer.

        • Treant

          Probably. One of Hillary’s besetting “sins” (a sin I’d like to have more of in the world) is intense loyalty to people who work well with her and do their jobs well.

          I can say I didn’t hear that argument as a detraction against Clinton near the election, so as to how much impact it had…I can’t say.

        • LesbianTippingHabits

          There is a reason why Hillary had Huma stay on.

    • danolgb

      I don’t think it was really that big of an issue directly. The problem was as part of the investigation, Comey decided there *might* be emails on Weiner’s computer that had relevancy in the Hillary witch hunt and took that opportunity to make a bombshell announcement right before the election. That was where the damage was done. That affected the uniformed voter more than any connection to Huma.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Ugh :
    Anthony Weiner sobs as sentenced to 21 months in prison over setting a minor:

  • gaycuckhubby

    I probably missed this in the article… was he aware she was 15?

    • LesbianTippingHabits

      Yes, and it’s in other media reports as well. No excuse for him.

      • gaycuckhubby


  • GayOldLady

    Just another dumb ass who thought his privilege would save him from himself. Now if we can get the sexual predator POTUS in lock up we can all go back to sleeping at night.

    • LesbianTippingHabits

      It’s not at all clear that POTUS is capable of acting as a sexual predator.

  • gaycuckhubby

    LOL… “Anthony Weiner sentenced to 21 months, so he’ll be out in time to ruin the next presidential election for Democrats.”

  • JWC

    Ok the guy is a schmuck and got charged and sentenced. Trump is a schmuck got out and elected

  • Ben in Oakland

    Fucking idiot.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Love your icon.

  • rextrek1

    while what Weiner did was wrong, the DBL standards and GOP hypocrisy is Pathetic! Diaper Man Vitter – that other guy who assaulted a reporter WINS his re-election…..Both GOP assholes…and then there’s admitted Pussygrabber DUMP!

  • Mike C

    I don’t really seen the need to point out any kind of political hypocrisy issue here. I liked him in congress, but this guy has been given chance after chance and chance to stop doing this shit.

    • pablo

      I agree but let’s keep this in perspective. He was engaged in dirty talk with willing people. Nobody except his own family has been hurt by this. The man’s compulsion made him stupid.

      • Rick S

        Dirty talk with “willing people”? Including that 15 year-old? Yeah, I know, she’s a tramp, right?

        • pablo

          You didn’t enjoy dirty talk at 15?

          • Rick S

            A 15 year-old might enjoy “dirty talk,” but a 50 year-old ADULT should not exploit that. If you think otherwise, then you are a seriously creepy individual.

          • pablo

            Did he know she was 15?

          • astroworf

            Yes, and he talked her into taking her clothes off for him over Skype.

          • LesbianTippingHabits

            There is key coverage that Anthony Weiner was well aware of her age. Granted, I accept that she is no saint – far from it, but he should have known much, much better. Thank you.

          • pablo

            If he knew and continued then that’s definitely creepy. I’m not sure it’s almost 2 years in jail worth of creepy though.

        • Treant

          That whore shouldn’t’ve been wearing her school skirt that short. Her bookbag caused it to ride up due to the weight of the Sweet Valley High romance books.

  • narutomania

    Now, Anthony, use these 21 months to get your fecking shite together and emerge as a (hopefully) better person on the other side.

    Your child needs a father that s/he can look up to. Not one that would be a continuing source of shame and regret.

  • JT

    This is just amazing, given the high crimes committed by Drumpfistas and no action taken.

  • Ish

    Good riddance.

  • Texndoc

    I’ve always thought the marriage was a sham concocted for whatever reason for him and Huma. Been attacked for thinking that too. Maybe because I’d wonder why she’d have anything to do with him in the first place.

    • LesbianTippingHabits

      A good question. One unknown is, how does/did Weiner tip?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Sorry Anthony, but you were given chance after chance. Sad really, because you were one of the best voices in congress.

  • CharlestonDave

    I’m surprised this hasn’t been pointed out, but It’s a sad truth that the main reasons Hillary is not president are
    (a) the penis of Bill Clinton, and
    (b) the penis of Anthony Weiner.

    • LesbianTippingHabits

      Lorena Bobbitt was right!

  • TheManicMechanic

    Not long enough in this case.

    Now to get Repugs incarcerated for their multiple, continued crimes.

  • JCF

    SOB. On top of the utter SLIMINESS of his behavior on its face, he KNEW that his behavior would redound to his wife, and then redound to Hillary…yet his fucking id kept at this beyond risky, beyond stupid behavior anyway. Fuck right off, Anthony. Disappear into oblivion.

  • LesbianTippingHabits

    On April 15, 2015, Hillary and Huma visited a Chipotle in Maumee, Ohio. No tip.

    And now this. Remember, tips are good karma. And karma never lies. Thank you.

  • jo gerardo

    I don’t blame the poor guy. It was either giggle or get a boner every time he signed his name. He was all out of giggles.
