Weiner Comes Clean, Admits Tweeting Naughty Photos

WASHINGTON - After days of denials, a choked-up New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner confessed Monday that he tweeted a bulging-underpants photo of himself to a young woman. "The picture was of me, I sent it," he told a room full of reporters in Manhattan.

Weiner said he intended to send the picture as a joke, but "I panicked, I took it down and said that I had been hacked."

A conservative website that last week started a furor over that lewd image posted new photos Monday purportedly from a second woman who said she received shirtless shots of the congressman.

Weiner, who said he has no intentions of resigning, also admitted to additional, questionable online behavior.

Weiner said he has had "several inappropriate conversations with women I have met online," he estimated that there had been "about six women over the past three years." He said many of the exchanges took place before his marriage, but others happened more recently.

Weiner insisted the relationships never moved beyond online interactions. "I have never met any of these women ... I've never had sex outside of my marriage."

The lawmaker said he does not believe that he used government property or congressional time to send these online messages. "I don't believe I did anything here that violates any law or violates my oath to my constituents."

Earlier Monday, BigGovernment.com, a website run by conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, posted a new photo from a second woman allegedly in contact with Weiner. Breitbart said the new photo was in a cache of intimate online photographs, chats and email exchanges the woman claimed to have.

Breitbart unexpectedly appeared at Weiner's Monday news conference early, approached the microphone and began taking reporters' questions. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE AND TO WATCH WEINER'S PRESS CONF.

    OMAK, Wash. - I can picture the Austin Powers bit now.  The people of Omak looking up at the sky and seeing a giant (Fill in the blank innuendo here) just like in 1999's Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. If you're unfamiliar, I'll save you a Google search.  A simple, yet effectively funny joke.  Except the U.S. Navy doesn't see humor in the real-life version at all.
