CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Anthony Weiner says he doesn't have a sexting addiction, even though he admitted to sending racy messages to three women after resigning from congress in 2011 for similar behavior.

Now, photos of the Indiana woman who Weiner had an online relationship with are popping up.

In a television interview, Sydney Leathers claims she had phone sex with Weiner and said he acknowledged his behavior.

"The exact wording [from Weiner] was he is an argumentative, perpetually horny middle-aged man," Leathers said. "And at the time I was like ‘oh, no you're not,' but yes, he is."

Meanwhile, Weiner continues his campaign for New York City mayor. However, it isn't what people are talking about.

Today, most questions from reporters were focused on the latest revelations.

"I said that these things are behind me," Weiner said. "They were then, they are now. Citizens need to decide amongst themselves...these things were personal in nature. I've worked them out between me and my wife."

Many are wondering if the New York City mayoral hopeful will pull out of the race. Weiner has said in the past he has no plans to drop out.
