A condominium in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood was among the promises a 22-year-old woman says was made to her by Former Congressman Anthony Weiner.
The woman is linked to the latest sexting scandal involving the 48-year-old politician.
She claims her communications with Weiner started back in July of 2012 and their exchanged lasted roughly six months.
In that time, Weiner went by the name ‘Carlos Danger.’ He reportedly sent the woman sexually explicit messages and photos.
The unnamed woman told a gossip website that she communicated with Weiner until the end of 2012. She most recently heard from him back in April of 2013 when he reactivated his facebook page. He reportedly wanted to know what she thought of his new page on the social media site.
The relationship with this woman would have been one year after Weiner resigned from congress for sending sexual messages to multiple women. In the 13-months after Weiner’s first scandal surfaced in 2011, his wife was pregnant and the couple was going through therapy to save their marriage.
At a press conference yesterday, Weiner admitted some of the new pictures are real.
“While some of the things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there’s no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me,” Weiner said. “”That is why, if you remember, in the early days of the campaign, people were pressing me for is there more out there, and I said, ‘yes.'”
His wife, Huma Weiner, stood by his side as he addressed reporters. They both vowed to move past the controversy.
“”I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him,” Huma Weiner said, “And as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward.”
Weiner says he is staying in the race to become Mayor of New York City, despite the pressure to quit.
“With 49 days left until primary day, perhaps I’m surprised that more things didn’t come out sooner. I am responsible for this behavior that led us to be in this place, but in many ways things are not much different than they were yesterday. This behavior that I did was problematic to say the least, destructive to say the most – it caused many stresses and strains in my marriage, but I am pleased and blessed that she has given me a second chance – for the past several months I’ve been asking New Yorkers to also give me another chance.”
