Weiner's Messages to Teenage Girl in Delaware Draw Police Attention

June 6, 2011: Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., addresses reporters to confess that he tweeted a bulging-underwear photo of himself to a young woman.

DEVELOPING: NEW CASTLE, Del. -- Police on Friday afternoon came to the home of a 17-year-old high school junior to ask her about direct online communications she has had with Rep. Anthony Weiner.
Two officers from the New Castle County Police Department arrived at the girl's home around 4:30 p.m. and asked to speak with the girl's mother about the daughter's contact with Weiner. Another officer appeared at the home a short time later. A FoxNews.com reporter was at the home when the police arrived.


The girl, whose name is being withheld because she is a minor, told FoxNews.com, "I'm doing OK."
The police left the home after about 30 minutes, followed by the daughter and mother, who left in a separate car. It was not clear if the mother and daughter were going to continue the conversation with police at another location.
Sources close the student said the girl followed Weiner on Twitter after seeing him speak during a school trip to Washington on April 1. Weiner, after signing on to follow the girl's Twitter feed, direct-messaged the girl on April 13, the sources said, though it is not clear what other communication the two may have had between or after those dates.



At a news conference on Monday, Weiner finally admitted that he sent lewd photos and sexually suggestive messages to six women through social networking sites over a three-year period. When asked whether all the women he exchanged messages with were adults, Weiner said, "to the best of my knowledge."
The confession came after Weiner had lied for a week about how a photo of his bulging underwear was sent to all of his Twitter followers before he quickly deleted it. Weiner claimed his Twitter account was hacked and that he was the victim of a prank. In fact, he had intended to send the photo to a 21-year-old college student but accidentally made it public.
