Disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, who is serving a 21-month prison sentence, is set for release three months early, in May of 2019.
Weiner is in prison for sending sexual text messages to an underage girl. One of the first to expose Weiner’s propensity for actions like that was Donald Trump. In 2012, after Weiner rejoined Twitter, Trump urged girls under the age of 18 to block him immediately.
Pervert alert. @RepWeiner is back on twitter. All girls under the age of 18, block him immediately.

If Trump’s warning was heeded, Weiner may not be in prison right now.
Weiner, who used the moniker “Carlos Danger” for his online sexual exhibitions is described as model prisoner at the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Massachusetts where he is held. That is likely the reason his release is three months earlier than initially scheduled.
Once released it is unclear what Weiner will do.
Despite rumors of divorce, he is still married to former Hillary Clinton campaign official Huma Abedin. Earlier this year Abedin filed for divorse, but quickly withdrew the application, opting to settle it outside of court.
Weiner has long been caught up in scandal. He was forced to resign from Congress in 2011 after being caught sending sexually explicit pictures of himself to women.
He attempted a comeback, running for Mayor of New York City until new sexual text messages were exposed, this time under his “Carlos Danger” pseudonym.
It was only after he destroyed his career he decided to one-up himself by sexting a girl he knew was underage, destroying his life. He was sentenced in September of 2017, and has been in prison ever since.
