NY Rep. Weiner admits he sent lewd picture; won’t quit

NEW YORK — After days of denials, a choked-up New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner confessed in a news conference that he sent a bulging-underpants photo of himself to a young woman. He also admitted that he had “inappropriate” conversations with six women before and after getting married.

But he added, “I am not resigning.”

Weiner called the initial photo a joke and a “hugely regrettable mistake.”
