NEW YORK, NY (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner has pleaded guilty to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.

The former congressman entered the plea Friday.

The FBI began investigating Weiner in September after a 15-year-old North Carolina girl told a tabloid news site 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 of his laptop led to the discovery of a cache of emails from Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to her aide Huma Abedin, Weiner's wife.

In related news, Huma Abedin, wife of Anthony Weiner has filed for divorce from the former Congressman.
