Weiner warns of more inappropriate pictures

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday there might be more controversial photos circulating from his time in Congress.

Weiner resigned in 2011 after images of him in various states of undress surfaced. The New York lawmaker sent the images via Twitter to women he met online.

“If reporters want to go try to find more, I can’t say that they’re not going to be able to find another picture, or find another — you know, person who may want to come out on their own, but I’m not going to contribute to that," Weiner told RNN-TV. 

"The basics of the story are not gonna change, it's behind me, it was a huge mistake."

Weiner was also asked if it was possible that women would come forward to reveal that they had met the senator in person, presumably to conduct an extramarital affair.

"I never met the women who were at the other end of these anonymous conversations," Weiner said.

In an interview with The New York Times earlier this month, Weiner said he was seeking "people's approval" with the inappropriate images.

“I wasn’t really thinking,” Weiner said. “What does this mean that I’m doing this? Is this risky behavior? Is this smart behavior? To me, it was just another way to feed this notion that I want to be liked and admired.’’

Weiner is said to be considering a bid for New York mayor, although has not yet formally launched a campaign.
