Former Democrat New York Representative Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison on Monday for sending sexually suggestive text messages to a 15-year-old girl.
Wearing a navy suit and green tie, the husband of Hillary Clinton top aide Huma Abedin was given his sentence in a Manhattan Federal Court by Judge Denise Cote.

News of the sexting scandal broke in September 2016 when a high school girl revealed that she had been receiving sexually explicit messages from the former congressman.
The young woman, who recently showed her face in a television interview for the first time, said the sexting relationship between them went on for months.
The news broke around a month after the pervert politician was caught in a sexting picture with his toddler son laying beside him.
Some on social media were happy, but others thought the sentence was not long enough.
Good. Here’s hoping upon his release he fades into obscurity.

It’s not long enough, but when you’re a person of privilege, it will feel like a lifetime.

Good. Hopefully he serves every day of the sentence. What he did was disgusting in and of itself, but he is also responsible for HRC losing

Considering that he might’ve gotten nothing, this is GOOD news.
