Anthony Weiner Photos & Fallout: Congressman Says Online Contact With Teen Not Indecent
WILMINGTON, Del. – U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, who has been under fire after admitting to sending graphic photos to women online, has acknowledged he had online contact with a 17-year-old girl but said the communications were "neither explicit nor indecent."
FoxNews.com reported that New Castle County police officers went to a high school junior's home Friday afternoon to speak with the girl's mother about the teen's contact with the New York Democrat. A FoxNews.com reporter was at the home when police arrived.
The girl, whose name is being withheld because she is a minor, told FoxNews.com, "I'm doing OK."
The police left the home after about 30 minutes, followed by the daughter and mother, who left in a separate car. It was not clear if the mother and daughter were going to continue the conversation with police at another location.
A Weiner spokeswoman issued a one-sentence statement Friday night that said, "According to Congressman Weiner, his communications with this person were neither explicit nor indecent."
Weiner, a seven-term Democrat, has admitted sending sexually explicit messages over the Internet to a half-dozen women over the past three years. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has asked for an ethics investigation.
