Former U.S. Rep. and full-time creep Anthony Weiner was sentenced Monday to 21 months in prison after pleading guilty in May to sexting a North Carolina teen.
According to USA Today, Creepy Weiner, 53, cried as he read a written statement in Manhattan federal court in New York City. He claimed that he’d hit “rock bottom” and added that he was “a very sick man for a very long time.”
This isn’t the first time Creepy Weiner found himself balls deep in a cheating scandal. In 2011, just a year after his emphatic speech blasting Republican Congress members for voting against aid for first responders during the 9/11 terror attacks, the New York Democrat resigned amid scandalous claims that he’d exchanged “messages and photos of an explicit nature with about six women” over a three-year span, USA Today reports.
Creepy Weiner married Huma Abedin, an aide for Hillary Clinton, in 2010, and the couple had a son in 2011. Things seemed to be going well for Creepy Weiner—in 2013 he attempted a political comeback, running for mayor of New York, but that was short-lived when it was revealed that Creepy Weiner couldn’t stop being a fucking creep and had been sending dirty photos to a 22-year-old woman under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger.” Abedin filed for divorce in 2016 after Creepy Weiner pleaded guilty to sending obscene material to a minor.
Creepy Weiner asked the judge for probation, and his lawyer Arlo Devlin-Brown claimed in court papers that his client was “at the depths of an uncontrolled sickness,” USA Today reports.
“The sentencing should also reflect the specifics of Anthony’s sickness, which Anthony has made enormous progress in addressing,” Devlin-Brown wrote.
Devlin-Brown also argued that the 15-year-old “induced” the 53-year-old former Congress member and was merely “looking to generate material for a book,” noting that she’d sold her story to a British tabloid for $30,000.
