Anthony Weiner: This behaviour is behind me

New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner says he will stay in the race despite admitting to sending explicit messages to a woman, two years after he left Congress over a similar affair.

"I have said that other texts and photos were likely to come out," he said.

"These things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through many challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress."

"This behaviour is behind me," Mr Weiner said.
