On June 6, 2011, after a week of denials, Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., admitted an explicit photo on his Twitter account was in fact him and that he had been carrying on inappropriate relationships with women he'd met online. Weiner announced 10 days later that he would resign from Congress and he formally resigned on June 21. However, in May 2013 he announced via a YouTube video his intent to run for New York mayor. On July 23, 2013, Weiner confirmed that more sexually-explicit text messages had been sent during his sexting scandal. He fell from first place to last place among Democratic candidates in polling and lost in the primary.
