Former Congressman Anthony Weiner said this week he “can’t say” if there are additional inappropriate pictures that he shared with women whom he never met.
“If reporters want to go try to find more, I can’t say that they’re not going to be able to find another picture or find another person who may want to come out on their own,” he said Wednesday during an interview with New York’s RNN-TV.
In May 2011, Weiner tweeted a sexually suggestive picture of himself to a college-aged woman. Instead of privately sending the sexually explicit smartphone image solely to the younger woman, Weiner tweeted it to all 45,000 of his followers. The sex scandal—without actual sex—caused him to resign from Congress in June 2011.
Despite the scandal, Weiner has his eyes on New York’s 2013 mayoral race, he said in a recent interview with the New York Times Magazine.
In a poll released earlier this month, the former lawmaker ranked second among Democrats in the mayoral race. He placed behind Christine Quinn, speaker of the New York City Council.
“The basics of the story are not going to change. It’s behind me,” he said. “It was a huge mistake.”
