Later that afternoon, Congressman Weiner held a press conference where he apologized, saying he had lied, and that, "To be clear, the pictures were of me, and I sent them." He admitted he had had internet relations with six women over three years. In questioning after the statement he declined to deny that a published "x-rated" photo was of himself. He said that he had his wife's continuing support, and that he did not intend to resign his congressional seat
According to abcnews.com "I have my own life, my own things where I'm from and I just wanted to go ahead with them. I thought I could just be private about it, but there's no reason for me to hide," she said. "I didn't do anything wrong. I don't know him. I'm just putting my story out there before anyone else tries to."
Weiner, who is a six term congressman, obnoxiously talked down to reporters seeking answers for his constituents, and even used derogatory language unbecoming of a Congressman while talking to one reporter. His office staff on Capital Hill even called the cops on a WCBSTV reporter seeking answers.
