Weiner a No-Show At Sex Offender Registry Appointment
Recently-freed sex offender and former congressman Anthony Weiner failed to show up for his appointment to register as a sex offender, according to a Wednesday report.
“Sources told The Post that Weiner had arranged a noon appointment at the Sex Offender Monitoring Unit at Manhattan Supreme Court a block away, where officials waited through their lunch hour for him,” according to The New York Post.
Weiner reportedly has 10 days from his release to register with office.
Three months ago, Weiner’s 21-month sentence for sexting a 15-year-old North Carolina girl was shortened for good behavior. He was supposed to freed from prison in August, but good behavior landed in him in half-way house in February, which parlayed into a May release.
Big League Politics reported:
In 2011, Weiner resigned from Congress after his first sexting scandal. His New York City mayoral campaign was foiled after his second sexting scandal in 2013. The scandal for which he ended up in jail was the premise for confiscating his laptop in 2016, on which thousands of emails from then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were found.
His then-wife Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide, filed for divorce shortly after he cut a plea deal with authorities.
Weiner’s laptop, which contained thousands of potentially-sensitive emails from Hillary R. Clinton’s unsecured server, was remains a subject of mystery. Clinton, and by extension Weiner, were cleared by the FBI of wrongdoing in the email scandal, which could be re-examined now that Attorney General William P. Barr has assigned a prosecutor to look into the FBI’s conduct during the Trump campaign.
