At It Again? Weiner Confirms New Explicit Photos, Texts to ... Not His Wife
New York City mayoral candidate and former congressional representative Anthony Weiner is back in the spotlight today ... and finding himself in a very similar set of circumstances. More explicit text messages and photos sent by Weiner to an unidentified female have come to light, with reports calling them graphic messages that were uncovered after Weiner's resignation from Congress in June 2011.
Tune into The Five at 5p ET for the co-hosts' reactions to the latest revelations.
Weiner issued the following statement after the revelation of the most recent messages, saying:
"I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have. 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. 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."
