New York City mayoral candidate and former New York Representative Anthony Weiner with his wife Huma Abedin at his side went before cameras to address allegations that appeared on the website thedirty.com.
It reports Weiner used the anonymous screen name Carlos Danger to send raunchy messages and photos to a 22-year-old young woman for six months.
"Some of these things happened before my resignation, some happened after," Weiner said.
In a provocative move, Abedin made brief remarks supporting him.
"What I want to say is I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him, and as I have said from the beginning, we are moving forward," said Abedin, a top adviser to Hillary Clinton.
