Weiner Presses Ahead Amid Calls to Quit NYC Mayoral Race

Posted:

Anthony Weiner is forging ahead with his mayoral campaign and shrugging off calls for him to quit amid a new round of revelations about his salacious online exchanges with women. 
 
The former-congressman told reporters Wednesday that he posited his campaign on a bet that citizens are more interested in the challenges they face than in anything embarrassing he's done in his past.
 
Some rivals and newspapers are pressing the Democrat to bow out a day after he acknowledged he kept sexting even after it cost him his congressional career two years ago. But he's preparing to testify at a public housing hearing and participate in a candidate forum Wednesday.
 
The gossip website The Dirty this week posted X-rated messages and a photo it said the married politician exchanged with a woman last year.   (AP)
