says some new lewd exchanges happened after resignation
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 the statement, Weiner pointed to previous comments he made around the time he announced his bid for New York City mayor, in which he said it was possible for more photos to come out as he made a reentry into politics.
The exchanges that surfaced Tuesday were revealed about a year after they allegedly took place and in the middle of Weiners Democratic primary campaign for New York mayor.
This behavior is behind me. Ive apologized to Huma and am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and for her forgiveness, he said.
In facing reporters, Weiner was supported by his wife, who in emotional comments discussed the couples struggles to save their marriage.
I made the decision that it was worth staying in this marriage, she said. That was a decision I made for me, for our son, and for our family.
This was the first time we heard his wife, Huma Abedin, speak at a press conference, but also speak about these issues, CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash said. This wasnt just a scene of a wife standing by her political man. This was a wife coming up to the cameras, coming up to the microphones, and talking, which was frankly extraordinary. She is somebody who isnt just a wife. She is very politically savvy.
Maybe most importantly, she learned at the knee of Hillary Clinton, somebody who most famously stood by her man politically. And so shes following in those footsteps, Bash continued.
