Anthony Weiner is an American former Democrat congressman and convicted sex offender who represented New York’s 9th congressional district from January 1999 until June 2011. He won seven terms as a Democrat, never receiving less than 60% of the vote.
Weiner resigned from Congress in June 2011 after the first of several sexting scandals became public.
On May 19, 2017, as part of a plea deal, Weiner pled guilty in federal court to transferring obscene material to a minor and was later sentenced to 21 months in prison and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine. He was also required to register as a convicted sex offender where he lives or works for the rest of his life.
