NEW YORK (AP) – Disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner acknowledges he communicated online with a girl but says he’s also been the subject of a hoax.
An online news outlet published an interview with a 15-year-old girl who says she exchanged sexually charged messages with Weiner.
The girl told DailyMail.com the online text and video exchanges went on for several months this year. She says they included Skype chats in which Weiner asked her to undress and touch herself.
Weiner on Wednesday gave The Associated Press an email supposedly written by the girl to her teacher, in which she recants her story. But Weiner says he has “repeatedly demonstrated terrible judgment” about the people with whom he communicates online.
The Democrat resigned from Congress in 2011 over a sexting scandal.
