Anthony Weiner acknowledges more explicit texts

In response to a report on a gossip Web site, New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner acknowledged Tuesday that he continued to engage in explicit online exchanges after resigning from Congress.

"My resignation was not a point in time that was nearly as important to my wife and me as the challenges" in my marriage, Weiner said at a press conference in Manhattan. "Some of these things happened before my resignation, some of them happened after."
