Here’s an idea for the Democrat Party’s slogan for 2018: “It’s not our fault.” That seems to be the resounding refrain from them these days. Hillary Clinton is (still) busy blaming everyone but herself for losing the election. And now, the sextual pervert married to Clinton confidant Huma Abedin is blaming the 15-year-old girl he preyed upon with pornographic images.
Registered sex offender Anthony Weiner was in court on Thursday, facing up to 10 years in federal prison for knowingly sexting with a minor. He kept in contact with the young girl throughout 2016, sending her repulsive messages such as, “I would bust that tight p***y so hard and so often that you would leak and limp for a week.” After the girl alerted authorities, the FBI seized Weiner’s devices and discovered e-mails between Abedin and Clinton on his personal laptop. That’s when then-director James Comey reopened the Clinton investigation, which is yet another reason Clinton blames for her loss.
Weiner’s lawyer argued to the court that the North Carolina girl reached out to him first for the sole purpose of impacting the election. The Wall Street Journal reported:
The girl, then 15, was “looking to generate material for a book the Government has disclosed she is now shopping to publishers,” the memo says, stating that she was paid $30,000 in September 2016 to sell her story revealing Mr. Weiner’s messages to the Daily Mail, a British tabloid.
“As she later stated to Government investigators, she also hoped to somehow influence the U.S. presidential election, in addition to securing personal profit,” the filing says.
The lawyer added that Weiner “never sought out teenagers on the internet and didn’t engage in other predatory behaviors typical of those arrested in similar cases.” As Legal Insurrection noted, the girl spoke with Inside Edition and said she contacted Weiner initially to see if he “was still up to the same antics.”
Abedin accompanied Weiner to court and asked for leniency from the judge for her soon-to-be ex-husband, citing that would be best for their young son (who would often appear in some of the pictures he sent, even in his dad’s crotch shots). Weiner’s lawyers are hoping for a plea deal to reduce the sentence to 21 to 27 months in prison.
No matter the girl’s intentions, Weiner shamelessly engaged. This is victim blaming at its best — a clear violation of leftist policy. When are these Dems going to take responsibility for their own actions?
