(CNN) - Anthony Weiner, the embattled New York City mayoral candidate who admitted this week to sending raunchy chats to a young woman last summer, estimated Thursday he had online relationships with three different women after his 2011 resignation from Congress.
But speaking at a news conference, the Democrat said he couldn't say for sure how many more women might come forward.
"There are a few. I don't have a specific number for you," Weiner said. "There are people I've had exchanges with that are completely appropriate, and that there are no pictures or illicit texts or anything. Now if those people want to say they don't like the exchanges we had either, I don't know where to put them."

Weiner stepped down from his House seat in 2011 after admitting to sending lewd photos and messages to multiple women online. He pointed out Thursday that when he left the House of Representatives, he admitted to exchanging messages with six women.
He then provided a rough total of how many women he's engaged with sexually online.
"It's not dozens and dozens," he said. "It's six to ten, I suppose, but I can't tell you absolutely what people are going to consider inappropriate or not."

Pressed to provide a guess as to how many of those relationships occurred after his resignation, Weiner said, "I don't believe I had any more than three."
Weiner has resisted calls from his rivals to withdraw from the race for New York City mayor, saying the decision of whether he's trustworthy enough for the job should be up to voters.

Why Anthony Weiner's problem is ours, too
Anyone who thinks she's hot needs their eyes checked. Anyone who votes for this dude needs their brains checked.
Why does this man want to run for any office. His reputation is ruined for years to come. I wouldn't trust him with with my money or my mommy!
who cares about this story, in real news Russia is doing its largest military exercises since the cold war.. ridiculous
IIf NYC elects this complete idiot they get what they deserve. If he's willing to humiliate his wife, surely he will be a class act with the city!
can we just forget this clown ...
If you have to "estimate" the number 3, then it isn't the real number.
A vote for Weiner is a vote for immorality!!!!!!!!!!
He really needs to withdraw from this race and get some much needed help. Has this man no shame, no respect for his family and friends. He is a real piece of work, one that should be put out with the rest of trash!
This guy is exactly what a d-bag is to the extreme. Goodbye Weiner.
Carlos Danger rides on !
Anthony Weiner needs a cape and a mask .
Estimates? Really? Ugh this guy is a real tool.
Did his wife know that too? Or was she blindsided again?
Link exchange is nothing else however it is only placing the other person's blog link on your page at suitable place and other person will also do similar in favor of you.
I could really care less what this guy does in his free time the only person affected by this is his wife thats it no one else should care at all.
Either the wife is equally perverse or she married for $, which still means she's at least equally perverse /immoral.
You know despite their public appearance ... His life at home is h ell.
The stupidity of politicians should NEVER be underestimated.
Unlike some politicians he does't hide behind the family name. You know what you're getting upon introduction.
Tony, give your "wife" a break, end it baby.
A loose woman and a weird dude...they deserve each other.
This is sickening.
What will we elect next?
Will Rogers always said, "America has the best politicians money can buy."
But paying a high price doesn't guarantee quality nor that you are getting your money's worth.
He's already proven he can't control himself and lies through his teeth ... you really want to put in control of the largest city in the United States?
What did she expect with a last name like Leathers?
The ignorant people of NY will elect him
