Anthony Weiner has allegedly checked in to a rehab facility for treatment of sex addiction on the heels of an FBI investigation following his sexting relationship with a 15-year-old high school girl.
According to DailyMail.com, Weiner, the estranged husband of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin, had reportedly been sending sexual messages and indecent photos to women, and at least one underage girl, for years.
The rehab facility Weiner will be staying in treats women and men separately and provides counseling to those addicted to cybersex, exhibitionism, anonymous sex, and porn, DailyMail.com reported. Electronic devices are banned.
Weiner’s wife Huma had already announced their separation in August, prior to the FBI discovery. “After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband,” Abedin’s statement read. “Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy.”
The teenager who allegedly received the sexts from Weiner wrote an open letter to FBI Director James Comey, according to BuzzFeed. In her letter, dated November 2, the teen wrote, “I am the 15-year-old (now 16) who was the victim of Anthony Weiner. I now add you to the list of people who have victimized me. I told my story originally to protect other young girls that might be a victim of online predators.”
She went on, “I thought your job as FBI Director was to protect me. I thought if I cooperated with your investigation, my identity as a minor would be kept secret. That is no longer the case. My family and I are barraged by reporters’ phone calls and emails. I have been even been blamed in a newspaper for causing Donald Trump to now be leading in some polls and costing Hillary the election.”
She signed it, “Girl that lost her faith in America.”
