Anthony Weiner with wife Huma Abedin during a press conference to address the publication of sexually explicit chats Weiner engaged in with a 22-year-old woman following his resignation from Congress over a similiar scandal.

Anthony Weiner’s comeback campaign was rocked Tuesday by a new cybersex shocker, but he said he won’t quit the mayoral race — and his wife said she won’t quit their marriage.
Spouse Huma Abedin, in an extraordinarily candid state of their union address, declared her commitment to Weiner despite revelations he had X-rated online liaisons with a woman a year after he resigned from Congress for similar behavior.

Weiner used the nom de perv “Carlos Danger” as he sent lewd photos of himself to the woman and engaged in sex chats with her.

“Our marriage, like many others, had its ups and downs,” said Abedin, wearing a tight smile, as she faced a media horde. “It took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy . . . but I made the decision to stay in this marriage.”
She said her husband made some “terrible mistakes both before he resigned from Congress and after” — but she claimed “we discussed all of this before Anthony decided he would run for mayor.”
The show of support came after Weiner, with Abedin at his side, acknowledged that he continued sexting until “last summer, I think,” after he and his wife sat down for a People magazine profile that marked the start of his attempt at public rehabilitation.

The woman involved in the new cyber-hookups claimed her relationship with Weiner lasted until November, when it “fizzled.”
“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” Weiner said at the news conference. “I’m surprised more things didn’t come out sooner.”
He brushed aside calls from his rivals that he abandon his candidacy. “I want to bring my vision to the people,” he said. “I hope they are still willing to give me a second chance.”
Weiner, 48, fessed up after a gossip site called The Dirty posted allegations from an anonymous woman who said she had an online relationship with him for several months beginning in July 2012, when she was 22.
