Bolling on Anthony Weiner: 'He Is a Sick Human Being'

Weiner pleads guilty in sexting case: 'I have a sickness'
"I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse", he said through pauses and bouts of tears in an emotional statement.
According to the charges, prosecutors said, Weiner used online messaging and video chat apps to communicate with a girl "he knew to be 15 years old".
After Weiner pleaded guilty in the case, his attorney, Arlo Devlin-Brown, said his client has accepted "full responsibility for the inappropriate, sexually explicit communications he engaged in early previous year".
The British tabloid newspaper The Daily Mailfirst reported on the explicit texts that prompted the criminal case, based on images and descriptions provided by the teenage girl in North Carolina.
Weiner, once a congressman, then a mayoral candidate, finally just another unworthy husband married to a goddess who is at last (almost) rid of him, has repeatedly exchanged sexually explicit texts and images with a band of women on social media.
"These destructive impulses brought great devastation to family and friends, and destroyed my life's dream of public service", he said in his plea statement.
In 2013, he became involved in yet another sexting scandal while he was running for mayor of New York City. "Yet I remained in denial even as the world around me fell apart". A judge will determine at a later date exactly what his sentence will be.
