Share Former congressman Anthony Weiner, whose penchant for sexting strangers online ended his political career and led to an investigation that upended the presidential race, will appear in federal court Friday to plead guilty to charges in connection with his online communications with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, officials said.A law enforcement official said Weiner has agreed to plead guilty to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the criminal charges had yet to be filed publicly with the court.Weiner was already in federal custody ahead of the court hearing, which was scheduled for at 11 a.m.The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan confirmed the court appearance but declined to immediately release additional details about the charges against the Democrat.The FBI began investigating Weiner in September after the North Carolina girl told a tabloid news site, the Daily Mail, that she and the disgraced former politician had exchanged lewd messages for several months.She also accused him of asking her to undress on camera.The investigation led FBI agents to seize his laptop computer, which led to the discovery of a new cache of emails that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had sent to Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife.In October, just days before the election, FBI director James Comey stunned the country by announcing that his agency was reopening its closed investigation into Clinton’s handling of State Department business on a private email server so it could analyze the newly discovered correspondence.That inquiry was brief. Comey announced shortly before the election that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Clinton could not be charged with a crime. But Clinton partly blamed her election loss to Republican Donald Trump on Comey’s announcement.Weiner’s lawyer, Arlo Devlin Brown, didn’t immediately return a message Friday.
Houston’s firefighters union sued the city today, arguing that officials have been playing “hard ball” and “not bargaining in good faith” on a new contract. They are asking the court to intervene to resolve the dispute by sending the parties to arbitration.“What we are seeking is simply fair treatment and what the City has done is negotiate in bad faith,” told Houston Public Media Marty Lancton, president of the Houston Professional Firefighters Association.It is the latest salvo in a long-running dispute between the city and firefighters.A new law passed by the legislature earlier this year was the culmination of a years-long effort by the city of Houston to address its pension liabilities. In the fall, all city pension boards – police, municipal and fire – agreed to a framework. But the fire pension board backed out before the final deal was introduced in the Legislature.Then the board sued, claiming the law passed by the Texas Legislature and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott is unconstitutional.Mayor Sylvester Turner has previously said the pension board is hurting the people it represents.Lancton detailed that the union’s goal is a three-year contract with salary raises amounting to 17 percent, but Turner noted during Wednesday’s City Council meeting that the highest pay raise Houston can afford is 9.5 percent over three years and described that offer as the City’s “maximum position.” Share
