Anthony Weiner: I Tweeted That Picture

6 years ago

Saying, "I'd like to make it clear that I have made terrible mistakes that have hurt the people I cared about the most, " Congressional Representative Anthony Weiner confessed in a press conference today that he intended to DM a lewd picture of himself to a young woman "as a joke," realized that it had gone out to his public Twitter stream, panicked, and blamed it on a hacker. He also admitted he has had "inappropriate conversations" via social media with six women, but insisted he used no government resources to do so and that he would not resign.

Watch the full conference:
