(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
I think he would make a good Mayor. As long as he is not entrusted with an official government email account.
Not news at all. He is just another sleazocrat like the rest of em
Just drop out dude, seek help, and learn to keep it in your pants. Just because your name is Weiner doesn't mean you have to show yours to every woman you meet.
This guy is garbage. I lost all respect for him that he will never regain.
And he has been given public money for his campaign. It's time to have him repay it
"Two, three, four? I don't know. " If he can't count to five on his fingers, he probably shouldn't be mayor . . .
The fact that he did this doesn't matter. The fact he keeps having to revise his previous statements (ie tell the truth) does. Dude, give it up already.
Despite all this, he still would be better then the carzy liberal loons such as Quinn, Deblasio, Thompson, Liu (another crook) who wnats to trun NY to the high crime days of the 70's
Seriously don't know what is worse.. Him or his wife.. She just wants to stay in the political arena. A woman who learned from Hillary how to Handel the political arena when your husband is actively cheating on you speaks volumes. Both woman are jokes.. Staying with their man for political reasons alone. This is pathetic and shows women the wrong thing. Women should hold men accountable and walk out on them after they cheat again.. I can understand once and standing by your man that made a foolish mistake.. But this goes beyond one mistake it is countless mistakes over and over. It is pathetic
How stupid can you be Weiner? You left office in disgrace for the very behaviour you keep engaging in and trying to get back into office. Please find an hole somewhere to hide in and do us all a favour.
How many? Not sure? Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Who cares? It's over, Weiner. Just fade away before you do more damage to your wife.
"Not sure? 3? 300? Hard to keep track. Wait, are we counting the girls I started sexting since yesterday?"
And this pathetic guy wants to represent me and other New York City residents as our elected mayor!!!!!! Sorry fella but I don't want people thinking that I approve of the cesspool that you've made of your life.
San Diego is trying to rid itself of their mayor for inappropriate things. Maybe he should come to New York and run.
Our smartphones are locked and we're crucifying this guy only, right?
How many? Not sure
Are you talking "sex-tatrts"
fake PUBLIC UNION "EMPLOYEES"
on the NYC payroll ???
This is a travesty. lol. And just to think there were more than a few dim bulbs prepared to vote for this miscreant. Shameful.
Spitzer and Weiner–absolutely without shame, or as Carlos Danger would say, "Sin Verguenza."
This guy is pathetic. PLEASE do not put this liar and pervert in office. We have enough of these types now – from both political parties.
If a person does what he did only once, he or she is already unfit for public office for the rest of his or her life. There should not be any second chances. Then he comes forward and tells us that he did horrible things in the past. He doesn't tell us, however, that he is still doing them.
It does not matter if he did it with three, ten or 100 women, the quantity is irrelevant, it is the quality of the deed that counts.
I personally find it quite insulting that this guy assumes people are still stupid enough to elect him.
Anyone who would vote for this perv would get what they deserve. Fool me once, people.
What a joke......sexting?......really?......what is he sixteen?..........and he wants to be mayor of New York? ............this guy is crazy if he can't see that he needs to move on with his life.....his political life is OVER!!!!!.....guess that's what happens when you think your smarter than everyone else!
this man is abusive to his wife and seriously mentally sick. He should be in treatment or jail, not an election
Please would this weirdo go away. Obviously, this guy got some major issues. I hope he gets help soon, so he will stop embarrassing himself.
