Former congressman and New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner is the man whose sexting scandal launched a thousand Post headlines. We can only guess what the tabloid will have to say about today's newest revelation: That he participated in raunchy online conversations, and sent dick pics, to a 22-year-old woman last summer. Weiner allegedly contacted the woman via Facebook and Formspring, using his real name, the alias Dangr33, and an incredibly funny second alias called "Carlos Danger."
The woman, who leaked the chats to gossip website The Dirty, claims she continued talking with Weiner until August of last year, however the screenshots are undated, so it's possible they occurred before Weiner's 2011 scandal. The Facebook images provided to the site show an avatar of Weiner with his wife, Huma Abedin.
He essentially copped to the newest charge in a statement today. (Carlos Danger declined comment.)
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
Weiner, Weiner, Weiner. The guy is, obviously, a creep and a pretty terrible person, but we do thank him for never really going away—like most sufferers of narcisstic personality disorder he doesn't really seem fazed by yet another uncensored picture of his penis floating around the Internet. I mean, the guy is going to stay in this race. Literally nothing will stop him from losing.
