U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted today to sending inappropriate photos to and had inappropriate digital communications with about six women over the past three years.
Weiner, in a statement to the press, said he’s made a “terrible mistake,” but he won’t resign. “I’m deeply regretting what I’ve done, and I’m not resigning,” he said.
Attention was focused almost two weeks ago on Weiner’s personal life when he claimed his account was hacked when a photo of a man’s crotch in just his underpants was sent to a 21-year-old college student originating from his Twitter account.
At the press conference today, he said he had never met any of the women in person but “generally women that I met on Facebook”.
Weiner, a Democrat, has represented New York’s ninth congressional district since 1999.
Do you feel he should resign?
