Anthony Weiner admits racy messaging after resigning from Congress

Weiner says he won't drop out of NYC mayoral race

NEW YORK - Anthony Weiner says he traded racy messages with as many as three women after resigning from Congress in 2011 for similar conduct.

The married Democrat also said Thursday that he's still "working with people" to get help dealing with his penchant for X-rated online flirting. But he disputes any suggestion that it's an addiction.

Weiner says he had bawdy exchanges with six to 10 women while in office, but his campaign later clarified that of that total, Weiner corresponded with three of them after leaving office.

He's continuing his New York City mayoral campaign amid the latest round of disclosures about his behavior.

It got seamier Thursday, when the gossip site The Dirty posted what it says is a lewd photo of Weiner that he sent to a woman last year.
