Ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner released from Bronx halfway house

Ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner released from Bronx halfway house”

After sending a lewd picture of himself to a college student in 2011, Weiner claimed his account had been hacked, then admitted online interactions with at least six other women while married to top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

What's next? "I hope to be able to live a life of integrity and service", he said. "And I'm glad this chapter of my life is behind me".

Weiner had served about 15 months of his sentence at the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Massachusetts, before being released in February to the halfway house in the Bronx.

The once-promising New York pol (whose name was a gift to Big Apple tabloid headline writers) indicated to reporters who were waiting for him that he's a changed man: "It's good to be out", he said, per the New York Post.

As part of his sentence, Weiner has been designated as a low-level sex offender. He's been living there for three months and will remain registered as a Level 1 sex offender.

Mayorial candidate Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin campaign on W. 111 St.in New York, July 14, 2013.

CNN has reached out to the Bureau of Prisons and Weiner's lawyer.

In an emotional statement when he entered his guilty plea in 2017, Weiner said he "compulsively sought attention from women", engaging many of them in sexual and non-sexual conversations.

Weiner attempted a political comeback in 2013 and ran for mayor of NY, but revelations that he had continued sending explicit messages doomed his campaign.

But Weiner eventually ruined that effort, too, sending a series of racy texts to a Democratic aide in IN named Sydney Leathers, using the moniker "Carlos Danger". The ensuing fallout led to then FBI Director James Comey reopening the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while Secretary of State just over a week before the 2016 presidential election.
