Weiner Admits He Sent Photos

By Erica C. Barnett June 6, 2011

Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) admitted today that he sent a photograph of his underwear-clad erection to a 21-year-old college student in Seattle, and to having "inappropriate communications" with "about six" other women.

In a press conference today, Weiner said he had had inappropriate online relationships with a half-dozen women over the last three years, including after his marriage to longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, 34, last summer. Those women include a woman from Nevada and one from Texas, whose story ABC News was poised to publish when Weiner went public with his story at a tearful press conference this afternoon.

Weiner, who was expected to run for mayor of New York City in 2013, said he would not resign.
