Weiner admits racy online flirting with up to 3 women after resigning

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner says he traded racy messages with as many as three women after resigning from Congress in 2011 following a so-called sexting scandal.

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.

However, he disputes any suggestion that his behaviour is the result of an addiction.

Weiner now says he had bawdy exchanges with six to 10 women while in office.

He's continuing his mayoral campaign amid the latest round of disclosures about his behaviour.

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.

Weiner acknowledged earlier this week that his indiscretions continued after his resignation. He insists they have now stopped.
