Former congressman Anthony Weiner, whose habit of sexting strangers ended his political career and led to an investigation that upended the presidential race, will appear in federal court Friday to plead guilty to charges in connection with his online communications with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, officials said. A law enforcement official said Weiner has agreed to plead guilty to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor. The FBI began investigating Weiner in September after the North Carolina girl told a tabloid news site, the Daily Mail, that she and the former politician had exchanged lewd messages for several months.
She also accused him of asking her to undress on camera.
The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan confirmed the court appearance but declined to immediately release additional details about the charges against the Democrat.
