Weiner says he is '100 percent not' sexting anyone right now

NEW YORK — Anthony Weiner said he is “one hundred percent not” having any type of online relationship right now and insisted again that his days of sexting are well behind him.

The Democratic mayoral hopeful told NBC New York that he has not sent lewd messages or pictures to women he met online for about a year and said he wants to move on and talk about other subjects.

"I just think at a certain point, OK, I think people know these embarrassing things about me,” Weiner said. “I think at a certain point now we have to have a conversation that goes to, alright, what else should people know?"

The interview was Weiner's latest as he struggles to regain momentum in his bid succeed Mayor Michael Bloomberg, ahead of the Sept. 10 primary. The former lawmaker’s poll numbers have plummeted in recent days after admitting that he continued to send sexual messages to at least three women he met online after a sexting scandal forced him out of Congress in 2011.

Weiner said Friday he had kept no records of the messages he sent women, telling NBC New York that he “deleted everything.” And he said he had felt guilty while engaging in those relationships.

"I didn't like when I was doing it, it was wrong to do, it was wrong to my wife, wrong period," Weiner said, referring to his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin.

Yet, as he has in recent weeks, Weiner acknowledged that other women could come forward with lurid details of online exchanges — though he said he hoped that wouldn’t happen.

“I certainly don't like talking about this stuff," Weiner told NBC.

And by “right now” he means within 3 minutes or so of making that definitive statement.

Weiner and the NYC scum who support him are exactly why those of us in Western NY would love to break up the state and let all those socialists/communists and degenerates have the kind of state they want and let us have one a little more civilized.

His arrogance is just a mirror of the arrogance and rude behavior on display every day in the city which never sleeps. It never sleeps because if it did some scum would steal it.

If he doesn’t .like talking about all of this, then do us all a favor and retire from public life. Then he can go do God knows what and nobody would care.

the voters may well reject him on election day, if you can believe the polls.

I was taking a walk this morning and happened upon a kind of tall mushroom emerging from the long grass at the road's edge. I took out my iPhone and took a photo of it.

I was surprised to hear Siri's voice suddenly say, "Good morning, Mr. Danger."

What he means is that he is not sexting 100% of the time. Closer to 99% of the time.

What is amazing is that considering that Weiner is an exercise buff, he never spent any time on that little pencil thin neck of his.

Weiner says he is '100 percent not' sexting anyone right now

Curiously, O.J. famously proclaimed he was '100 percent not guilty'.

He’s a goner for any “big time” political position. His advisors are now telling him the mayoral race is a no go. He’ll soon drop out, Huma will wait a month or two and go into down low mode. The Clintons will make sure the financial problems are on HIM...and Huma will reappear at Hill’s side in a few months. Oh, and in the mean while, he’ll go into “rehab” (gag me). Then it’s off to a whine fest at MSNBC or CNN where he can be a “voice of the people”. Slimebag.

Oh, and he sure does look like Woodstock from the Snoopy cartoon!

This guy is COMPULSIVE. When he has to drop out of the race, old Huma flees, because he is of no use to her any longer and he faces the legal/financial problems with no JOB, he’ll be doing this crap 24/7 to ease his stress.

“he faces the legal/financial problems with no JOB, he’ll be doing this crap 24/7 to ease his stress.”

Actually he has no legal problems, as nothing he did is technically illegal. Immoral yes, illegal no. As to financial problems, he had a stash of money in his prior campaign chests available to run this campaign, so he won’t have any financial problems either. And he has his gov’t pension and bennies from when he was in Congress, so Weiner is pretty well set up. Although if he and Huma get divorced he will have child support payments to make. Even this would be up for debate though; if Huma makes more than Anthony in salary, it could be the other way around. So, Anthony pretty much skates regardless of what happens.
