WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, who has been under fire after admitting to sending graphic photos to women online, has acknowledged he had online contact with a 17-year-old girl but said the communications were “neither explicit nor indecent.”


FoxNews.com reported that New Castle County police officers went to a high school junior’s home Friday afternoon to speak with the girl’s mother about the teen’s contact with the New York Democrat. A FoxNews.com reporter was at the home when police arrived.


A Weiner spokeswoman issued a one-sentence statement Friday night that said, “According to Congressman Weiner, his communications with this person were neither explicit nor indecent.

Todd Quinones reports…

“Weiner, a seven-term Democrat, has admitted sending sexually explicit messages over the Internet to a half-dozen women over the past three years. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has asked for an ethics investigation.”
