Disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner repeatedly convinced an underage girl to get naked and fondle herself while he watched over the internet, federal prosecutors revealed in a court filing Wednesday.
Legal papers filed ahead of Weiner’s sentencing next week say the serial sexter took part in three video chat sessions via Skype during which the girl “made clear that she was not just a minor — she was, in fact, only 15 years old.” “That did not stop Weiner,” the feds wrote.
But…I wouldn’t be surprised to see Facebook launch group video chat down the road.
Until now Skype has kept up fees for premium/business users, and we’ve heard that it was always a key “future revenue” product that they pointed to during their IPO and buyout process.
“During the latter two Skype sessions, on February 18 and 23, 2016, and in a Shapchat communication on March 9, the defendant used graphic and obscene language to ask the Minor Victim to display her naked body and touch herself, which she did.” Weiner, 53, also sent the girl an “obscene message” using an app called Confide, in which he described “what he would do to her, if she were 18,” court papers say.
