New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner (D) said he is "100 percent not" in any online relationships right now, a departure from his recent history of sexting and sending inappropriate messages to women.
"I don't have any of the records [of past affairs]," Weiner said in an interview with NBC New York on Friday. "I deleted everything."
Weiner still acknowledges that there are still unknown details about his past affairs. NBC New York reports:
As he has before, Weiner acknowledged that not all the details about his past affairs are known. When asked whether more women will come forward between now and the Sept. 10 primary, he said:
"I don't know, I hope not. I certainly don't like talking about this stuff," he said.
He went on to say he did not even like engaging in the relationships when he was in the midst of it.
"I didn't like when I was doing it, it was wrong to do, it was wrong to my wife, wrong period," he said.
Weiner was recently confronted by controversy over sexting when 23-year-old Sydney Leathers revealed she had taken part in online sex chats with the mayoral candidate after he had apologized and resigned from Congress in 2011 for lying about a previous sexting scandal.
But the new sexting allegations weren't the only blow to Weiner's mayoral campaign. A former intern of Weiner's, Olivia Nuzzi, published a column in the New York Daily News revealing how the former Congressman called his female interns "Monica." Barbara Morgan, Weiner's communications director, then unleashed a profanity-laced rant against Nuzzi, calling her a "slutbag" and a "bitch."
Weiner has insisted he will not drop out of the mayor's race despite continuing scandals.
