Anthony Weiner admits to more lewd photos

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Anthony Weiner has done it again.

Just weeks after launching his comeback bid for New York City mayor, the former congressman acknowledged Tuesday that he sent additional lewd photos and text messages -- after he left Congress in disgrace for his prior explicit online chats.

The congressman fessed up to the naughty texts after sexually explicit photos and online chats between "Carlos Danger," allegedly the pseudonym for the city hall hopeful, and an unidentified woman surfaced on the blog, TheDirty.com.

The reports claim that the conversation between the politician and an unidentified 23-year-old woman took place on the social media website Formspring in August 2012, a year after he resigned from his post in Congress after being caught the first time -- and nearly seven months after his first child with wife Huma Abedin was born.

The woman claims on the blog that she first started talking online with Weiner in July 2012 and it became intense by August 2012, when he offered to find a Chicago condo where they could meet up.

She also alleges that they had phone sex and that they exchanged nude photos of each other. She claims she received photos from Weiner of his penis sent from a Yahoo email account under the 'Carlos Danger' name. The purported image was later posted on 'TheDirty.com.'

Weiner released a written statement on Tuesday afternoon admitting to additional raunchy conversations.

"I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have, he said in the statement, referring to comments he made two months ago during the start of his mayoral campaign. 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.

Weiner did not elaborate on which of the new reports are true or false and whether or not it took place last summer. He went on to publicly apologize again to his wife.

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.

The online conversations between "Carlos" and his would-be paramour are quite explicit.

"I like [sic] to whisper in your ear while I make love to you. That ok," reads one of the tamer messages, apparently from Weiner.

"More than okay. Just the idea of it turns me on so much. I want to connect with you on every level," the woman responds.

"Why are you awake? What are you thinking about today? How do look [sic]," he asks in another conversation.

She responds: "I don't sleep a lot. Obviously I'm thinking about you. And I've been doing some painting today. Right now I have no [makeup] on. And I'm topless."

It's unclear how the lewd news will impact Weiner's campaign. Some New Yorkers have shown a willingness to forgive his past indiscretions since he announced his mayoral campaign via YouTube in May.

He has since shot to the lead in the polls, with a Quinnipiac University survey last week showing he held 25 percent of the vote.

Officials from Anthony Weiner's mayoral campaign did not respond to requests for additional comment from FoxNews.com.
