Mayoral candidate and former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner is reacting to the leak of another alleged cybersex relationship.
His alleged nom de plume for sexting? Carlos Danger.
A woman claimed anonymously this week to the gossip site The Dirty that she exchanged lewd photos and had explicit phone conversations with Weiner after the scandal that led him to resign from Congress in 2011.
The woman in question was 22 when Weiner began the online relationship. Site editor Nik Ritchie wrote that the woman claimed Weiner and the woman “had a relationship for six months, and she believed they were in love.”
She claimed that Weiner offered to help her get a condo in the South Loop section of Chicago “without me asking,” according to “The Dirty.”
The site published a censored picture allegedly supplied by the woman, which she claimed was of Weiner’s genitals.
Weiner released a statement Tuesday in response to the latest revelations.
“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,” Weiner said in his statement. “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 resigned from Congress in June 2011 after tweeting a lewd picture of himself and lying about his account being hacked. He later admitted his inappropriate contact with several women.
