A 17-year-old girl from Delaware has been interviewed by police about online contact with embattled U.S.

Rep. Anthony Weiner, but authorities say she didn't disclose any
information about illegal conduct.

It's the latest turn in a scandal that has some members of Congress saying the 46-year-old congressman should step down, after he admitted to sending sexually explicit messages to women online.

Weiner acknowledged Friday that he had online contact with the
girl, but said it was "neither explicit nor indecent."

That came after FoxNews.com reported officers had interviewed the high school junior.

The New York Times reports Weiner said he exchanged at least five private messages on Twitter with the girl.

New Castle County police say the investigation is continuing.

The New York Democrat has said he won't step down.
