Representative Anthony Weiner confessed Monday that he tweeted a bulging-underpants photo of himself to a young woman in Seattle. He also admitted to online relationships with “about six women over the past three years”. He said they were online relationships and he had not met any of the women in person.
He apologized to his wife and to anyone else that he hurt by his actions. His wife was not with him when he went before the press today. Weiner married Huma Abedin who is an aid to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last July. Former President Bill Clinton officiated at the wedding. Weiner said he had no plans of resigning. He said he loved his wife and that they had no plans of splitting up.
ABC News said Monday it planned to air an interview with a Texas woman, Meagan Broussard, who claims to be one of the women who exchanged messages with Weiner. The 26-year-old single mother said she has dozens of emails, Facebook messages and cell phone logs that document more than a month of flirting that started on April 20.
