"There are no second acts in American lives," F. Scott Fitzgerald once said. If he were alive today, the author of The Great Gatsby would surely welcome the new film version of his book. But the reappearance of Anthony Wiener on the New York political stage might make Fitzgerald reconsider his famous remark about second acts.
It was Wiener, after all, who two years ago became one of the most high-profile known to have engaged in the practice of "sexting." Sexting refers to the sending of sexually explicit electronic messages. When this involves a teenager, the fact that a minor is involved underage can sometimes result in charges for a sex crime.
