Former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner said the allegation that he had online sexual communications with a 15-year-old girl is a "hoax."

The Daily Mail reports a teen made the claim she and the former congressman exchanged explicit messages earlier this year.

Fox5NY reporter Sharon Crowley invited Weiner to respond on camera, but he declined and emailed a statement instead, saying:

"I have repeatedly demonstrated terrible judgment about the people I have communicated with online and the things I have sent. I am filled with regret and heartbroken for those I have hurt. While I have provided the Daily Mail with information showing that I have likely been the subject of a hoax, I have no one to blame but me for putting myself in this position. I am sorry."

Weiner sent Fox5NY a letter from the teen saying she lied, but it had not verified if the letter was authentic. The teen and her father are not pressing charges against Weiner because the girl said the communications were consensual.

According to the New York Post, Gov. Andrew Cuomo rebuked Weiner, saying, "If the reports are true, it's possibly criminal and it is sick. And frankly I've heard enough about Anthony Weiner, and I think that goes for all New Yorkers."

The Daily Mail said their story is not a hoax.

Weiner is currently separated from his wife, Huma Abedin, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's top aide. They separated in August after images appeared online of a previous exchange of explicit messages with a different woman.
