Weiner Begins His Apology Campaign

In his first live interview since announcing a comeback mayoral bid, Anthony Weiner (D) told WNYC that he would continue to apologize to voters about the scandal that ousted him from office two years ago, and promised that the behavior would not occur again.

Said Weiner: "There's no doubt about it. I made very big mistakes. I compounded it immeasurably by being dishonest about it. I have apologized many, many times to my wife, and frankly I know that part of this process is going to be doing a lot of apologizing."

When asked if his illicit online activity could be described as an addiction, Weiner dismissed the characterization: "I don't know what it was. It's none of those things. It was simply a blind spot. It was a thoughtfulness I had about my private behavior."
