Lawmaker did send pics of himself: New York Rep. Anthony Weiner has admitted that he lied repeatedly over the past week and a half when he told reporters, colleagues and his friends that a hacker posted lewd photos of him to his Twitter account. Weiner apologized during a press conference on Monday and said that he has engaged in several inappropriate relationships with women he's met online. Listen to one woman talk about her involvement with him. Democratic observer James Carville says Weiner doesn't have a lot of fans in his own party. But the lawmaker said he will not resign and said it's up to voters to determine whether he continues in his job. Many are debating whether he violated any official House ethics rules. CNN's Wolf Blitzer told Piers Morgan on Monday that before Weiner confessed to lying, Blitzer "sort of believed" Weiner during an earlier interview when the congressman told the journalist he had no idea who had sent the image.
