But the sexting didn't stop, and a series of explicit exchanges continued in early 2016 with a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina, two highly knowledgeable sources told NBC News in September.
Weiner, the estranged husband of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin,allegedly sent pornographic videos and made requests that the girl be nude and masturbate, the sources said. He allegedly used the alias "T Dog" in the exchanges.
Weiner and Abedin have been estranged since last summer, when new accusations came to light that he sent photos and messages to another woman.
