NYC mayor candidate again in sex chat scandal

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner said Tuesday he won’t drop out despite the revelation of racy correspondence with a young woman _ which she says began months after he resigned from the US Congress for similar behaviour. ‘This is entirely behind me,’ Weiner told a news conference, just hours after he confirmed exchanging sexually explicit photos and text messages online.

‘There was no question that what I did was wrong,’ he added.
He resigned his Congressional seat in June 2011 after acknowledging having sexual correspondence, including a photo of a man’s bulging underwear, with at least a half-dozen women. His wife, Huma Abedin, a longtime adviser to former US secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, stood by him during his comments, at times smiling nervously, and made rare public statements on her husband’s behavior.

The new allegations could severely test voters’ willingness to forgive Weiner. The newly revealed correspondence was posted Monday by the gossip website The Dirty. The woman involved was not identified. She said their online relationship began in July 2012, when she was 22, and lasted for six months. She claimed Weiner used the alias ‘Carlos Danger’ for their exchanges, but shwe knew she was talking to the former congressman.
