    Anthony Weiner admits to sending more lewd images, texts but vows to stay in mayor's race
    Published July 23, 2013

    With his wife by his side, Anthony Weiner said Tuesday he's not dropping out of the New York City mayoral race despite new revelations that he sent additional lewd photos and text messages after he left Congress in disgrace for his prior online chats.

    Weiner, who resigned his House seat in June 2011 after acknowledging having sexual conversations with at least a half-dozen women, told a hastily called news conference he would stay in the race despite the new onslaught of negative publicity.

    “I’m sure many of my opponents would like me to drop out of the race but I’m not going to do it,” he said, adding, he hoped the people of New York were "willing to still continue to give me a second chance."

    Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, told reporters that she loved her husband and had forgiven him.

    “Our marriage has had its ups and its downs,” Abedin said standing next to Weiner. “It took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy to get to the place where I can forgive Anthony. It was not an easy choice but I made the decision that it was worth staying in this marriage. It was a decision I made for me, my husband and our son.”

    Weiner said that while acknowledging responsibility for his behavior, "in many ways, things are not that much different than they were yesterday. This behavior that I did was problematic to say the least, destructive to say the most, caused many stresses and stains in my marriage. But I am pleased and blessed that she has given me a second chance."

    The newest allegations against Weiner come just weeks after launching his bid for New York City mayor.

    The congressman fessed up to the naughty texts after sexually explicit photos and online chats between "Carlos Danger," allegedly the pseudonym for the city hall hopeful, and an unidentified woman surfaced on the blog, TheDirty.com.

    The reports claim that that the conversation between the pol and an unidentified 23-year-old woman took place on the social media website Formspring in August 2012, a year after he resigned from his post in Congress after being caught the first time -- and nearly seven months after his first child with wife Abedin was born.

    The woman claims on the blog that she first started talking online with Weiner in July 2012 and it became intense by August 2012, when he offered to find a Chicago condo where they could meet up.

    She also alleges that they had phone sex and that they exchanged nude photos of each other. She claims she received photos from Weiner of his penis sent from a Yahoo email account under the “Carlos Danger” name. The purported image was later posted on TheDirty.com.

    Weiner released a written statement on Tuesday afternoon, which he read again at the press conference,admitting to additional raunchy conversations.

    "I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” he said in the statement, referring to comments he made two months ago during the start of his mayoral campaign. “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. While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me.”

    Weiner did not elaborate on which of the new reports are true or false and whether or not it took place last summer. He went on to publicly apologize again to his wife.

    “I've apologized to Huma and am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and for her forgiveness. 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. As my wife and I have said, we are focused on moving forward.”

    The online conversations between "Carlos" and his would-be paramour are quite explicit.

    "I like [sic] to whisper in your ear while I make love to you. That ok," reads one of the tamer messages, apparently from Weiner.

    "More than okay. Just the idea of it turns me on so much. I want to connect with you on every level," the woman responds.

    "Why are you awake? What are you thinking about today? How do look [sic]," he asks in another conversation.

    She responds: "I don't sleep a lot. Obviously I'm thinking about you. And I've been doing some painting today. Right now I have no [makeup] on. And I'm topless."

    It's unclear how the lewd news will impact Weiner's campaign. Some New Yorkers have shown a willingness to forgive his past indiscretions since he announced his mayoral campaign via YouTube in May.

    He has since shot to the lead in the polls, with a Quinnipiac University survey last week showing he held 25 percent of the vote.

    Officials from Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign did not respond to requests for additional comment from FoxNews.com.

    FoxNews.com's Perry Chiaramonte contributed to this report.

    What kind of country have we become when sexual deviants who are well known to be deviants are so sure the electorate will overlook their behavior that they operate without shame?

    San Diego mayor Bob Filner and Anthony Weiner, and they both may very well survive their sordid behavior.

    Turn us over one more time, we are done. Filner's accomplishments during twenty years in the Ca. State Assembly amounted to zero and he was voted in on a party line. The only decent candidate for mayor withdrew from the Republican party to run as an independent because he wouldn't follow the rino "party line," thus San Diego has it's second Democrap Mayor in 40 years.

    On a positive note for New York, they know what's coming before they bend over!

    Follow the money and you will come to the genesis of all our problems!

    One of the biggest horndawgs of All-Time was Jack Kennedy and, regardless of what present day prudes would have us believe, everybody knew it. If it wasn't for Lee Harvey Oswald, he'd probably still be the Pres.

    And don't forget Slick Willie. He was famous for vote-trolling with his one-eyed zipper snake...and the girls just flat loved it.

    "Sick" is cool now. Sadly, the horse is out of the barn.

    Sadly the horse is out of the barn. That is priceless. Really that is as funny a line as I have read in a long while.

    What isn't funny is there will be many citizens that vote for this douche bag. Weiner is the symptom, the voters the problem. I have much more to say on the subject. I just don't have the energy.

    Even the democrats are embarrassed. Anyway it's OK because the personal assistant to that champion of women's rights Hillary Clinton LOVES him.

    Democrats squirm as Weiner’s wife rushes to rescue him
    By Neil Munro 6:50 PM 07/23/2013

    Democrat Anthony Weiner and his wife brazenly stood side-by-side at a late-afternoon press conference, telling reporters that they love each other and will keep campaigning for the mayor’s office in New York.

    The defiant stand took place only hours after a gossip website produced a new stream of crudely sexual texsts sent by Weiner to a 22-year-old woman, and it prompted angry response by embarrassed pro-feminist Democrats.

    “Anthony has made some horrible mistakes, both before he resigned from Congress and after, but I do really strongly believe that is between us and our marriage,” said his wife, Huma Abedin.

    “I love him, I’ve forgiven him, I believe in him, and as we’d said from the beginning, we’re moving forward,” Abedin told a roomful of journalists and cameras that broadcast the press conference on cable television nationwide.

    “My wife and I, moving forward together,” Weiner said.

    Weiner is racing for the Democratic nomination in the mayoral race. His chief competitor is City Council Speaker Christine Quinn.

    The nomination will be decided by ballot in seven weeks.

    New York includes many married couples who take their vows seriously, and do not believe that extended and public sexual impropriety can be simply excused as private activity.

    Many Democrats are aghast at the scandal, and at Abedin’s support for Weiner.

    “Why would the Democratic Party want to blamed and typecast with this guy?” said Chris Matthews, host of MSNCBC’s “Hardball.”

    The press conference “was disturbing,” and a humiliation, said Joan Walsh, editor of Salon. “No Democrat could want this to continue. … It is really astonishing,” she added.

    Abedin’s defense of Weiner was “painful to watch,” Nia Malika Henderson, a national political reporter for The Washington Post, told MSNBC anchor Al Sharpton.

    “The problem is, it isn’t ‘between us’ — it has become a public spectacle,” said Malika Henderson.

    Abedin is a former top aide to the Democrats’ top candidate for 2016, Hillary Clinton.

    Reporters at the event also sharply questioned the Democratic candidate. “Why should we trust your judgment?” shouted one reporter as Weiner and his wife left the press conference.

    But Weiner and his wife contritely disregarded the scorn.

    “Perhaps I’m surprised that more things didn’t come out sooner — I’m responsible for us being in this place… this behavior that I did was problematic to say the least, destructive to say the most,” Weiner said.

    “I’m pleased and blessed that [Abedin] has given me a second chance,” he added.

    Isn't it remarkable that all the guys who haven't cheated on their wives in America are sexist dirt bags who are beneath women's rights supporters contempt, but two big big names in democrat circles who have cheated on their wives have been forgiven by their women's rights championing wives who are willing to "move on."

    At least Bob Filner's sweet young thing had the personal decency and pride in her own reputation to dump him.
