I think she's as good morning everybody Anthony -- X rated controversy grows as have that was possible.
His poll numbers are taken a big tumble we're gonna -- -- where they -- this morning.
The former congressman and current New York City mayoral candidate.
Swarmed by the media.
Forced to add even more details as if we needed them to -- -- still I welcome everybody.
On that note to America's Newsroom good to have you with us some Martha Macau.
-- good having you about Martha good morning to -- -- -- to be with -- on Kelly Wright in for Bill Hemmer so this scandal now threatening to end.
-- -- political -- one reporter pressing him to come out with a number of the other women he may have contacted.
And then -- tried to do the math.
There are more than they are there are few I don't have a specific number for you I'm.
I there there are a few.
I said the time in my resignation there were six I don't believe there been any I don't think total there anymore and here's the problem as I thought as I start to -- You know.
There are people that I had exchanges with that are completely appropriate and that are not that -- we are no pictures and illicit text or anything like.
Now if those people want to say they don't like the exchanges we had either I don't know where to put them all I can say -- that is it's it's not.
Dozens like I told it but the posts and -- made a big headline out of it it's not dozens and dozens it is.
Six to ten I suppose but I I can't tell you absolutely what someone else -- -- considered inappropriate or.
How many -- Happened.
Asking -- central news.
I don't believe I had any more than three.
A -- -- I mean.
I did not apply this story where I don't even I don't even know what to say I mean I put by the defense that -- -- -- could at a set on an essay on this matter I'm Don and moving on one of the issues.
He he I can only believe he he's getting some sort of enjoyment about that.
Back and forth on this porno this Julie Banderas here.
With me in our newsroom this morning the stories clearly not going away -- You have to cringe when you watch that because the number goes from three to make it does and -- I don't know what you consider inappropriate hello every tax that that we have read so bars and appropriate.
So anyway the hits keep on coming as you can see Anthony Weiner sexting -- speaks.
And if you're running for mayor well this isn't the kind of -- you want out there believe me -- love there is.
Sat down with inside -- to talk about Carlos danger or -- we don't like to refer to himself as a dirty old man.
He actually said that about himself to me he would have the exact wording was that he is an argumentative perpetually horny middle aged man.
Kind of the timeout I was like -- no you're not but yes he is the.
And -- was not laughing as he held one news conference after another this week to try to correct -- wrong -- Citizens have to decide for themselves.
Whether -- personal behavior.
Win one thing happened or didn't happen is important to them I understand all I'm saying is that these things were personal in nature.
-- I've worked them out between me and my wife.
And and I've gotten them behind me they've been behind me for some time now.
And it wasn't so they were behind me that I decided to run for mayor.
Not only did the disgrace can congressman and mayoral candidate engage in lewd sexual texts with more than one woman which ultimately led to his resignation in 2011.
He continued to do so a year later after making promises to the American public that he had changed -- says heat was lying.
Is making these campaign promises that he had totally changed -- I am crew.
But that is not true.
And while Weiner isn't being specific on how many women he was involved with the timeline of when the messages were exchanged has everyone talking.
-- answered so and what about the poll numbers how are our voters reacting well since the news actually broke he's taken quite a big hit as you can imagine once the front runner in some polls in the latest Wall Street Journal Marist poll -- trails with 16% of the votes.
And City Council speaker Christine Quinn has taken the lead with 25%.
He would let her in this particular poll by 5% prior.
To this week's news and with only two months before the primary -- campaign has now switched to damage control.
The way as other candidates must feel like -- -- they can barely get any attention anywhere right because this is second wind out of every single.
Op part of this whole story Julie thank you really want -- later you know.
