Two words: Terrible judgment...
Some quotes from the Anthony Weiner presser:
"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."
"Some of these things happened before my resignation, some of these things happened after, but the fact is that that was also the time that my wife and I were working through some things in our marriage."
"I know this was a very public thing that we had happen to us, but by no means does it change the fundamentals of my feelings here, and that is that I want to bring my vision to the people of the city of New York. I hope they're willing to still continue to give me a second chance, and I hope they realize that in many ways what happened today was something that, frankly, had happened before but it doesn't represent all that much that is new."
"Frankly, we're in a lot better place today or I would not have run for mayor."
Hey, he had free media coverage, so why not campaign during his apology presser?
His wife, Huma Abedin:
"It took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy..."
"I strongly believe it's between us, our marriage. I have forgiven him, believe in him."
"I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him, and as I've said from the beginning, we are moving forward."
One more word: Painful.
