(CNN) – Christine Quinn, New York's leading Democratic mayoral candidate says opponent Anthony Weiner has brought a circus on the city.

(CNN) – The woman who exchanged the sexually explicit messages that have thrown Anthony Weiner's New York City mayoral campaign into damage control mode said Thursday the former congressman deceived her when he contacted her online.
"I felt manipulated," Sydney Leathers told the television program "Inside Edition." "Obviously I felt like he's saying one thing to me, another thing to his wife, saying another thing on the campaign trail. I don't know who the real Anthony Weiner is I guess."
(CNN) – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had no advance knowledge that her longtime friend and adviser, Huma Abedin, would speak out on behalf of her husband, Anthony Weiner, according to two sources with knowledge.

(CNN) – A new poll conducted entirely after Anthony Weiner admitted to lewd chats a year after such sexting forced him to resign from Congress indicates that the Democratic New York City mayoral candidate's support among voters has dropped significantly.
According to an NBC 4 New York/Wall Street Journal/Marist survey released Thursday, 16% of registered Democrats now say they'd vote for Weiner for mayor in September's Democratic primary. That's down nine percentage points from the last Marist survey, conducted in late June. In that poll Weiner stood at 25%, with New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn at 20%. Now Quinn leads Weiner 25%-16%.
(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.

Washington (CNN) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tore into Anthony Weiner and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, saying Thursday the two former House Democrats should "get a clue" as they face backlash for their questionable behavior with women.

(CNN) - There are still a lot of details to come out, but here's one thing we know about Anthony Weiner: He is not a punch line; he is an addict.
I would assume Weiner has always had an uphill battle against being the butt of someone's joke, just by the nature of his last name. Immaturity has always reigned supreme, and now in the days of Internet memes and Twitter zingers, Weiner seemed ready-made for a scandal.FULL STORY

(CNN) - While Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin say they're trying to move their marriage past Weiner's repeated sexting scandals, friends of Abedin's told CNN that upon the former congressman's confession to his wife last fall that he had relapsed into exchanging lewd messages, Abedin was furious and seriously considered ending the marriage.
She was done and ready to leave him, the friend said. Another friend said she was "this close to walking out the door."
