Weiner’s campaign has stumbled since he admitted to having sent sexual messages to a woman on the Internet after resigning from Congress in 2011.
He admitted in the interview that he could have been more forthright about the fact that the messages continued after he left office.
“If you’re saying I should have said this happened on a particular date, maybe you’re right. Maybe I should have,” he said in response to a question about previous interviews in which he seemed to have said he was done with the behavior.
Now it's over with, he said on Sunday, and similar to embarrassing things people have “that they overcome all the time.”
"I think that with help of my wife, with the help of professionals, I’ve got it behind me," he said.
Knowing how things transpired, he told NBC that he has no regrets about running for mayor.
“No one gets to go back and redo things," he said. "I’m convinced the decision I made was the right one."
