Anthony Weiner Admits There May Be More Pictures Out There

Anthony Weiner, who promises a decision on whether he will run for New York Mayor within a matter of weeks, said in interviews yesterday that it’s entirely possible there are other pictures out there related to the scandal that caused him to resign from Congress:

Anthony Weiner, looking to re-enter politics after resigning in shame after a sexting scandal, couldn’t say for sure Wednesday whether more lewd photos of him are poised to be released.

The former New York congressman said the sexting scandal was behind him.

“I’m not going to participate in that anymore,” he told RNN Television. “If reporters want to go and try to find more, I can’t say they’re not going to be able to find another picture, find another person who may want to come out on their own. But I’m not going to contribute to that. The basics of the story are not going to change. It’s behind me. It was a huge mistake.”

If Weiner does run and there is more out there, you can guarantee that they’ll come out.

    Oh great, a dick runs for mayor and we get the shaft.

  2. PJ says:

    If Diaper Dave can be senator, I can’t really see any reason why Weiner can’t be mayor…

  3. KariQ says:

    Of course there are. He never would have resigned if we knew about everything.

  4. CSK says:

    This sounds like an admission that there are more pictures out there.

  5. Caj says:

    He was stupid to do it in the first place and I doubt will ever be that stupid again. Still, he didn’t have a sordid affair with another woman, go with prostitutes or pick up boys did he? Pictures may be ridiculous but sooner that than having an affair and lying to your family, staff and constituents like Mark Sandford. Pictures of stupidity versus an affair! Stupidity didn’t break up a family.

  6. Mike says:

    Says a lot about his judgment – apparently he has been doing this for years by his own admission. A little difficult to be respected when there are dong portraits out there and your name is Mayor Weiner.
