Weiner says he's a weener, and he won't deny it!
New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner held a press conference yesterday, addressing the newly-leaked, inappropriate messages that he admittedly sent to women during his Washington sexting scandal years ago.
Now that the former member of Congress is running for an elected office, the truth is coming out once more, and Anthony isn’t shying away. With his wife, Huma Abedin, by his side, the mayoral candidate came forth with his mea culpa, claiming that the incident was “behind” him.
"As I've said in the past, these things I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and have caused us to go through many challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress… While some of the things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there's no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me. I have apologized to my wife Huma and I am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and that I have her forgiveness."
Anthony then added:
"With 49 days left to primary day, perhaps I'm surprised more things did not come out sooner. In many ways things are not much different than they were yesterday."
Ch-ch-check out the video press conference …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
