New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has vaguely confirmed allegations from gossip website the Dirty that he sent sexually explicit chat messages and photos to additional women. "I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” he said in a statement. Later, he admitted in a press conference that some of these liaisons happened after he resigned from Congress in 2011.
One of the specific claims in the Dirty’s reports is that Weiner used a Yahoo account with the pseudonym “Carlos Danger” to email photos of his penis—a fact that Weiner has not confirmed or denied.
