Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison on Monday after pleading guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor by sexting with a 15-year-old girl.
Weiner, a former New York congressman who was partially blamed by Hillary Clinton for helping her lose the 2016 presidential election, reportedly wept as he heard his sentence and read a statement to the judge. Now, we have visual proof.
Presented by Jane Rosenberg, the same artist who gave us the infamous Tom Brady courtroom sketch and the more recent unflattering Martin Shkreli courtroom drawing, here’s what it looked like when Weiner needed tissues to halt the cascade of tears.
Rosenberg’s masterpiece, though, wasn’t the only art to emerge from the courtroom on Monday to showcase the man the New York Daily News described as “the disgraced pol” who was “crying and grabbing tissue after tissue.”

The 53-year-old Weiner will surrender himself on Nov. 6. Hopefully all of his tears will be dry by then.
