Weiner says some new lewd chats happened after resignation

(CNN) – New York mayoral candidate and former congressman Anthony Weiner said Tuesday that some of the sexually explicit online exchanges that were published by a gossip website happened after his resignation from Congress in 2011.

"Some of these things happened before my resignation, some happened after," Weiner said at a hastily organized press conference.

His remarks came hours after screenshots of sexually charged conversations and photographs appeared on a gossip website which alleged the communications were between Weiner and a young woman last summer.

Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 after admitting to sending lewd photographs and images to multiple women.
