A necessary moment for Anthony Weiner

Written by  Amber Phillips

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has repeatedly been exposed for sending lewd messages and photos to women online. Here's a definitive guide to his sexting scandal. (Peter Stevenson/The Washington Post)

He was a congressman, he was a sexter.

He was a mayoral candidate, he was a sexter.

He was the subject of a cringing documentary, he was a sexter.

He was ultimately the owner of a computer, seized by the FBI for sexting, that ended up playing a massive role in the 2016 presidential election. He was the husband of one of Hillary Clinton's trusted aides, now he's her ex-husband.

And now, Anthony Weiner will officially have a criminal record. The New York Times, citing an unnamed source, reported that Weiner will plead guilty Friday for a single charge of sending obscene material to a minor.

This is Weiner's story, and it's a sad one.

Since the New York Democratic congressman resigned in 2011, Weiner popped back into the public sphere like the moles from one of those whack-a-mole games at the arcade, often when we'd least expect him. And each time, the political world couldn't look away. And each time, we felt something different about this man and his phone.

Weiner's story was first late-night-TV worthy (a picture of his you-know-what out there on Twitter? And his last name is Weiner?!).
