The disgraced representative will also have to register as a sex offender once he is released.
Former U.S. representative and failed New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison on Monday for sexting with a minor, a story that rocked the 2016 presidential election.
Weiner who is married to longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, was caught sexting with a 15-year-old North Carolina girl.
“Anthony Weiner carried on a months-long online sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl during which she claims he asked her to dress up in ‘school-girl’ outfits for him on a video messaging application and pressed her to engage in ‘rape fantasies’, DailyMail.com can exclusively report.”
The case resulted in the FBI reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices, which Clinton has repeatedly blamed for her election loss.
According to reporters, Abedin was a no-show at Weiner’s sentencing.
