In his press conference just a few minutes ago, Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted he lied about those lewd pics of his junk on Twitter (which he originally claimed was the work of a hacker). He also 'fessed up to numerous affairs with women online. But while apologizing for his actions, he is NOT resigning, nor is he planning on separating from his wife (we'll see what his wife says about that in the coming weeks). More from Weiner via CNN:
"To be clear, the picture was of me, and I sent it. I'm deeply sorry for the pain this has caused my wife, and our family, my constituents, my friends, my supporters and my staff," he said, claiming he'd posted the Twitter photo accidentally as a "joke" and then "panicked." "I lied because I was ashamed at what I had done, and I didn't want to get caught."
