BROOKLYN - Anthony Weiner attended a mayoral forum Wednesday night at Bronx Community College, just one day after more lewd text messages and photos came to light.

The former congressman admitted to exchanging racy photos and having X-rated chats with a woman he met online. She says the two were in a relationship that started last July, and that she was 22 years old at the time.

The latest round of explicit photos comes two years after Weiner admitted to sending inappropriate images to more than half a dozen women. He resigned from Congress following that scandal.

Weiner said in a news conference Tuesday that he will move forward with his mayoral campaign. His wife, Huma Abedin, also spoke, saying she loves and forgives her husband.

Recent polls show Weiner is doing well in the race for mayor. Some potential Bronx voters say his personal life has nothing to do with his political career, but others say they think it's time for him to step aside.
