Weiner: 'I Wasn't Thinking'

NEW YORK (WABC) — Political reporter Dave Evans sat down with former Congressman Anthony Weiner to discuss the Twitter scandal and his potential run for mayor of New York City. We haven’t seen him in almost two years ever since his humiliating resignation, but now Anthony Weiner is back. “I’m going to spend a lot of time and a lot of days saying I’m sorry to people. And say I’m sorry to people watching this interview. But first and foremost I’m spending a lot of time saying I’m sorry to my wife still,” he said. His wife is Huma Abidin, who works for Hillary Clinton, and she’s is still angry about what happened. Her new husband was caught texting to at least six women. He sent out embarrassing sexual photos of himself. He was even accused of coaching a porn star to lie after he was caught. “What was going on? Why did you do this?” I asked. “You know if I had a dime for every time someone asked the obvious question ‘what were you thinking?’ I’d be a very wealthy person. I mean the simplest answer is I wasn’t thinking,” he explained. We asked how he broke the news to Huma. “It didn’t start with ‘honey, this ain’t so bad.’ This was bad and I did it to her,” Weiner said. Since then they have a new son, Jordan. He is 16 months old. All three appeared in People magazine last summer. But when the scandal first broke it just about destroyed their marriage. “Let’s just suffice it to say we went through a very difficult period and it’s in our rearview mirror but it’s not far in our rearview mirror.” Now after two years of seclusion, Anthony Weiner with Huma’s support is tipping a toe back in the political pool, possibly to run for mayor of New York City. He remains non-committal.
