A 17-year-old girl in Delaware has been questioned with regard to her Twitter contact with Congressman Anthony Weiner, according to a report on Fox News.
Fox reports that two officers went to the girl’s home today and stayed for 30 minutes, and that she and her mother left in a separate car after the officers departed. The report says a Fox reporter was at the house when police arrived.
According to Fox:
Sources close the student said the girl followed Weiner on Twitter after seeing him speak during a school trip to Washington on April 1. Weiner, after signing on to follow the girl’s Twitter feed, direct-messaged the girl on April 13, the sources said, though it is not clear what other communication the two may have had between or after those dates.
A spokesperson for the police department could not immediately confirm any details related to the call.
“Our officers did respond to a residence in North Wilmington,” Tracey Duffy, the acting public information officer for the New Castle County Police Department, told The Politicker. “I’m not sure who they spoke to, I’m not sure of the age of the person that they spoke to, and I can’t confirm whether or not it’s related to the Congresswoman Weiner incident.”
