Anthony Weiner Sits Down With NY1 For First TV Interview Since Resignation

As he continues to contemplate a return to the political arena, former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner sat down with NY1′s Errol Louis in his first television interview since he resigned from office (video above).

Louis began the interview on a personal note. “The last time you were on our show was in the middle of this crisis that led to your resignation, and I think the most troubling thing for me and for many other people was that there was such an element of deception involved,” he said. “You asked to come on the show, and then said a lot of things that just weren’t true.”

“There’s no disputing what I did was wrong, the actions that led me into this place were wrong,” Weiner answered. “They were dishonorable … they were by extension dishonest to you and to my constituents. And for that I’m very sorry. I’m very sorry in general, but I’m very sorry to you as well.”
