Anthony Weiner returns to the headlines, admits to new ‘texts and photos’ saying ‘Give me another chance’

Anthony Weiner resisted calls to withdraw from the New York City mayoral race Tuesday after finding himself caught in another sexting scandal similar to the one that ended his congressional career two years ago.

Weiner admitted sending a woman sexually explicit photos and messages and acknowledged the activity took place as recently as last summer, more than a year after he resigned from the House in June 2011 for the same sort of behavior with at least a half-dozen women.

In a news conference late Tuesday afternoon, Weiner read a statement apologizing for his behavior and he repeated, as he has done since he jumped into the New York City mayoral race in May, that he and his wife, Huma Abedin, are “moving forward.” 

“As I have said in the past, these things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress,” adding, “I want to again say that I am very sorry to anyone who was on the receiving end of these messages and the disruption that this has caused.”

“It was not an easy choice in any way but I made the decision that it was worth staying in this marriage,” Abedin said. “I didn’t know how it would work out but I did know that I wanted to give it a try…I love him. I have forgiven him. I believe in him,” she added. “And, as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward.”
