Weiner Cries as He Pleads Guilty: ‘I Have a Sickness’


Anthony Weiner broke down as he entered a guilty plea in a New York federal court Friday morning.

"I have a sickness but I do not have an excuse," the crying former Democratic congressman told the court, according to New York Post reporter Kaja Whitehouse.

Weiner's guilty plea comes after an FBI investigation into his sexting with an underage, 15-year-old girl. He turned himself in Friday morning.

Weiner could face up to 10 years in prison, though, the New York Post reports, he's likely to get less time after striking a plea agreement with prosecutors.

The disgraced pol's wife, Huma Abedin, a close confidant of failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, did not appear in court alongside her husband.

Weiner told the minor via text message, "I would bust that tight p–y so hard and so often that you would leak and limp for a week."

He also shared "rape fantasies" with the minor, reportedly telling her that he wanted "to be dominated."

Weiner will now have to register as a sex offender.
