More from Fox News:
Disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner plans to plead guilty Friday in federal court to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.
A public relations firm for Weiner’s lawyer confirmed to Fox News that he will plead guilty, and the FBI told Fox News that Weiner surrendered on Friday morning.
The FBI began investigating Weiner in September after a 15-year-old North Carolina girl told a tabloid news site 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 New York Times first reported that the former New York Democratic congressman will enter the plea Friday in Manhattan.
According to the Times, the expected plea covers conduct from January to March of 2016. The charge reportedly carries a potential sentence ranging up to 10 years in prison – though the former congressman also could avoid prison entirely.
And this idiot basically took down Hillary because of his lecherous ways too!! I’m surprised the dude is still alive…
NEW: Anthony Weiner guilty plea has been entered. He faces 21-27 months in jail for the transfer of obscene material to a minor per docs.
