Anthony Weiner has gone from one scandal to another. We earlier reported the latest scandal regarding racy photos and conversations of the potential next mayor of New York City. Anthony Weiner is now giving a live conference, and it is unknown yet what the man will say. We have live streaming coverage of the conference. The conference is set to begin at 5PM EST.

Via Yahoo News: Back in April, when Weiner first announced his candidacy for mayor, he specifically said that there could be more photos and messages out there. And he said that it’s possible that another person may come forward. On Tuesday, Weiner referenced those statements in his new apology:
I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have. As I have said in the past, these things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress. While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me. I’ve apologized to Huma and am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and for her forgiveness. I want to again say that I am very sorry to anyone who was on the receiving end of these messages and the disruption that this has caused. As my wife and I have said, we are focused on moving forward.
So really, we had a good idea that this was coming. And it isn’t so out of the ordinary for a guy who resigned from Congress over similar issues just two years ago. Despite this, Anthony Weiner has still been doing well in recent polls. Quinnipiac had him up against City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, 25 percent to 22 percent last week. And he was only slightly down against Quinn among women, 23 percent to 21 percent. Overall, right now polls look to be pretty neck-and-neck. It remains to be seen, of course, whether the latest revelations will have any impact.
