This is just terrible. The girl that Anthony Weiner was convicted of sexting was also targeted by another scumbag who is accused of sex with a minor – and Weiner might be sucked into his trial.
A former Lake Norman High School teacher is accused of having an improper relationship with a local teenager in Gastonia.
Sources told Channel 9 the accuser is the same teen whose text messages led to prison time for former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner.
Police have not provided any details on how Jonathan Busch, 54, allegedly made contact with the girl who is now 18.
Busch was arrested and charged with statutory rape of a child under 15 and indecent liberties with a child. He was booked into jail in Gaston County Thursday, but records show he bonded out later the same day.
Iredell-Statesville School officials confirmed Busch, a social studies teacher, resigned this week. He was hired by the school system on July 31, 2003.
But because Weiner was sexting the girl, he might be used by the defense to help this guy.
Busch will face a judge on Monday, and experts told Channel 9 that Weiner, who is serving a 21-month prison sentence, could become a focus in the case.
The girl was 15 years old when we learned that Weiner was exchanging lewd photos with her.
That revelation in 2016 was a huge hit to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, whose top aide was Weiner’s wife.
