Just go away, Anthony, please. This country’s seen enough embarrassment after the definition of ‘sex,’ the guy in Florida with the pages, the congressman in the late 70’s or early 80’s censored for porking pages (Underage kids..how did he avoid jail time?) and the list of things from Bush, Obama, Bob McDonnell and Terry McAuliffe.

Disgraced Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner predicted that more news would emerge regarding his infamous sexting scandal back in 2011—and today, it did.
Weiner, who is currently running in the New York City mayoral campaign, resigned from Congress in 2011 after confessing he sent sexually explicit photos to multiple women via Twitter, reports NBC. The married politican iniatially denied the reports and aruged that his account was hacked. He later came clean, admitting to having “inappropriate” online relationships with several women and stepped down from his position that June.
On Tuesday, he responded to a report of newly-discovered explicit online messages to a woman, in a statement obtained by CBSNews.com. The young woman told The Dirty that the exchange continued after Weiner resigned in August 2012.
“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. “This behavior is behind me.”
He had acknowledged early in his mayoral campaign that more lewd “texts and photos” could come out during his candidacy. However, he said that he and his wife are “moving forward” from the scandal.
“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,” Weiner said. “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.”
