Anthony Weiner Gears up to Run For New York City Mayor and during his first TV interview he’s trying to avoid questions about sexting scandal.
Two years after former congressman Anthony Weiner resigned in disgrace following explicit Twitter picture scandal, he agreed to give a television interview just days after a lengthy magazine piece ran about his possible run for New York City mayor. As he sat down for a television interview in his Park Avenue apartment he tried to deflect specific questions about the scandal that forced him to resign in 2011.
‘I did these inappropriate things and sent these inappropriate messages with more than one person, several people. And I have been excruciatingly honest, in letter by letter, detail by detail, with my wife,’ he said to local station.
‘Frankly, a lot of these things are in the public domain. An embarrassing amount is in the public domain.
‘But out of respect for the idea that I’ve laid it all out for her and out of some respect for the privacy of the people who were at the other end of these correspondences, who had their lives turned upside down, I am not going to go into the details of every bit of it.’
When asked how many women he sent lewd pictures to, Weiner would not say the exact number, only saying that there were ‘several’ recipients. When pressed whether several meant more or less than 10, he refused to answer either way.
