Transcript for Weiner Jokes About Scandal, Won't Drop Out
Now, to the latest on the anthony weiner sexting scandal. Growing calls for the former kohnman to drop his bid to become mayor of new york. And there's reports that his accuser may come forward today. Jonathan karl has the latest from washington. Good morning, jon. Reporter: Good morning, robin. The latest to call for anthony weiner to drop out is a fellow new york democrat who served with him in congress. And says, quote, he needs serious psychiatric help. But weiner is as defiant as ever. Anthony weiner was booed at the start of this campaign event wednesday, by new yorkers who may have been ready for forgive him once, have to decide whether to forgive him twice. The democratic candidate for new york city mayor, seems to be unphased by it all. At a debate wednesday night, he offered up a joke, when all of the candidates were asked what social media they prefer to use, facebook or twitter. All I can say is don't ask me. Reporter: Weiner's wife, huma abedin became visibly emotional, EVEN AS HE ADMITTED A's SEXTING Ways went on long after congress and promised he would never do it again. New york newspapers have been relentless. Mocking him and the carlos danger alter ego, he apparently used when sending explicit messages and photos to young women over the internet. Weiner was sending them before and after he and his wife posed for this "people" magazine last year. "People" included excerpts from the interview. Including this from his wife, calling weiner a caring husband. I have not washed a single piece of clothing ever. He makes my tea when I get up in the morning. He's just a loving, caring, thoughtful spouse and partner. Back when the scandal first broke, weiner showed how xative he can be when telling a lie. Is it inappropriate for a member o congress to be following young women on their twitter accounts? It's really outrageous as the implication is outrageous. This is a twitter hoax. A prank that was done. I'm the victim of it. Reporter: Weiner is defiantly vowing to continue his campaign. And the latest poll actually shows him as the front-runner for mayor. But it's a lead that may not need all that much. The poll was taken mostly before the news of the latest scandal broke. And, robin, we're hearing the reports today that another woman who he was involved in sending these messages to is about to go public. Perhaps as early as today. That's today. All right, jon. Thank you so much. And people didn't care for him joking about it as he did last night. Can't imagine the firestorm is going to stop anytime soon here.
