New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner’s weiner is back on the scene with a new sexting scandal. Once a sexter, always a sexter!
Anthony Weiner, who famously resigned from Congress two years ago after it was revealed he had sent dick pics to young women, addressed new sexting allegations at a press conference on Tuesday. After the gossip website The Dirty posted X-rated text messages and a crotch shot that it said the former congressman exchanged with an unidentified woman, Weiner was forced to fess up.
Although he admitted that (once again) he sent lewd photos and explicit messages to a woman, he is refusing to drop out of the NYC mayor’s race. I repeat, Anthony Weiner will NOT pull out. Weiner claims the recently revealed sexts occurred both before and after his resignation from Congress but as of 2013 he’s sext-free.
Weiner, who has been leading polls of Democratic mayoral candidates, said he was “very sorry” about the incident.
“This behaviour is behind me. I’ve apologised to my wife, Huma, and I’m grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and that I’ve had her forgiveness,” Weiner told reporters.
“I want to again say how very sorry I am to anyone who was on the receiving end of these messages and the disruption that this has caused.”
“I’m surprised more things didn’t come out sooner,” Weiner added.
Weiner’s wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, is sticking by her husband for the second time.
“Our marriage, like many others, has had its ups and downs, It took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy to get to a place where I could forgive Anthony.”
“Anthony’s made some horrible mistakes, both before he resigned from Congress and after. But I do very strongly believe that it’s between us and our marriage. I love him, I believe him, we are moving forward.”
Someone’s been spending too much time around Hillary Clinton…
The best part of the sexting scandal isn’t that history is repeating itself all over again but rather that Anthony Weiner’s online alias is “Carlos Danger”.
In July 2012, Carlos Danger engaged in racy exchanges with a 22-year-old woman. The woman, who does not want to be identified, said she began chatting with Weiner on the social networking site Formspring and that their online relationship began in July 2012 and lasted for six months. According to her, Weiner exchanged nude photos of himself with her, engaged in phone sex, shared sexually explicit fantasies, and promised to help her get a job at the political website Politico and suggested meeting in a Chicago condo for a tryst. Oh Carlos Danger… will you ever learn?
