Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner (D) earlier today confirmed the veracity of some of the new explicit online chats that were revealed by an anonymous woman. He called a 5:00 pm press conference to address the allegations that the most recently-revealed chats occurred after his resignation from Congress — while his wife, Huma Abedin, was pregnant.
