The girl first reached out to Weiner on the evening of January 23, 2016, when she noticed his Twitter page allowed non-followers to contact him through direct private messages.
She told DailyMail.com she was interested in politics and had heard about his sexting scandals, and was curious to see what he was like.
It was clear from the messages that she was encouraging Weiner to engage with her in a sexual manner. She told DailyMail.com she didn't consider Weiner her boyfriend, but thought the relationship was a 'romantic' one.
She acknowledged during interviews that she had developed an obsession with Weiner, and sought him out on Twitter in January while trying to write a book about him. She said she continued to write the book as their relationship developed.
'Why did I message you [in January]?' the girl wrote in an email to Weiner last week. 'I was studying you- for a book of course. You were my Hannibal Lecter.
'I wanted to know what made you tick. As we chatted, I pretended to not know EVERYTHING about you. I didn't want to appear suspicious.'
She also told Weiner: 'I was obsessed with you.'
When we would Skype, he would tell me that he was very lonely and that it had been a year since he and his wife [Huma] had sex, and that she really didn't pay him any attention,' said the girl. 'We would talk, just chatting for about 30 minutes and it would lead to more sexual things…asking me to undress…he'd comment on my body. He asked me about masturbation, and that kind of thing.'

Anthony was probably setup by his wife Huma. I guess it come back to bite her in the ass. Karma is my favorite word.
But unlikely, something more nefarious is transpiring me thinks.

Reminds me of the local story of a pedophile who claimed the kids came on to him, therefore it wasn't his fault. Apparently Weiner knew the girl's age. She did not lie to him or keep it from him. Given that it doesn't really matter if he was set up by a clever girl. He still did it, knowing her age. Wiener is obviously out of control. Even after he was caught the first time, and the second time, he continued to do it. He threw away a very promising career. I'm not a Hillary fan at all--quite the opposite, but I feel sorry for Huma and the humiliation she has had to endure. It may have been a political marriage of convenience and all that, but they have a kid together. How would you like to be that kid and grow up and read the newspaper account of your father's behavior? So yeah, Wiener may have been set up, but there's no doubt he took the bait. He didn't have to.
He attached a picture of his crotch, with his son curled up nearby in a blanket. “You do realize you can see you[r] Weiner in that pic??” the woman responded, according to the Post
