Weiner admits sexting continued after resignation from Congress

New York City mayoral candidate and former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday admitted to exchanging additional sexually explicit messages with a younger woman over the Internet — well after an initial "sexting" scandal led him to resign from Congress in disgrace. 

In a dramatic press conference, Weiner's wife Huma Abedin stood by his side as he acknowledged his sexting problem was something the couple dealt with after his summer 2011 resignation.
