Despite Pressure, Weiner Says He'll Stay Put

Ad Feedback

Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner is standing firm in his decision not to resign after admitting to sending several women a sexually explicit photo, despite mounting pressure from within his own party.

I'm not [resigning]," Weiner told the New York Post Thursday. "I'm going to get back to work as best I can."

Earlier this week, the seven-term congressman admitted he conducted inappropriate online communication with at least six women, including sending a lewd photo of himself.

Now, sources close to Weiner and his wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, say the couple is expecting their first child.

Weiner has not confirmed or denied the rumored pregnancy.

"Conversations between my wife and me are private," he said. "But you know, she's bearing up well and she's back at work and she's doing a great job."

Weiner added that he wants to move past the controversy, and is trying to make amends with his family and constituents.
