Anthony Weiner sexting scandal news conference (June 6, 2011)

American politician Anthony Weiner, former U.S. Congressman from New York City, has been involved in two sexual scandals related to sexting, or sending explicit sexual material by cell phone. The first, sometimes dubbed Weinergate, led to his resignation as a congressman in 2011.

On June 6, a blogger posted a cropped, shirtless picture of Weiner obtained from a woman on the Internet and said Weiner had sent more pictures of himself, including at least one that was sexually graphic.

After publication of this information, Weiner held a press conference in New York at which he apologized, saying "I have not been honest with myself, my family, my constituents, my friends and supporters, and the media" and that, "to be clear, the picture was of me, and I sent it." He also said he had "engaged in several inappropriate conversations conducted over Twitter, Facebook, email and occasionally on the phone" and had exchanged "messages and photos of an explicit nature with about six women over the last three years".
