Weiner vows to stay in mayor race

Anthony Weiner, pictured with wife Huma Abedin, said the manager of his campaign for the New York mayoralty has resigned

Anthony Weiner has vowed to stay in the race for New York City mayor despite the resignation of his campaign manager.

Mr Weiner confirmed that campaign manager Danny Kedem resigned the day before after reports surfaced that Mr Weiner continued to exchange lewd photos and messages with women despite resigning from Congress in 2011 over the same behaviour.

Mr Weiner says he has an "amazing staff" but that his campaign "isn't about the people working on the campaign".

Mr Weiner was forced to discuss his online behaviour after a gossip website printed excerpts of conversations he had with Indiana college student Sydney Leathers last summer.

Mr Weiner apologised and promised that the "behaviour is behind me".

He later admitted that he traded racy messages with at least three women since leaving office.
