Weiner: 'What I've Done Has Hurt' Abedin

As he sat down for a "Buzzfeed Brews" interview, Anthony Weiner passed on having a beer, in what was perhaps the easiet question of the evening, CNN's Jim Acosta reports.

For nearly 40 minutes, that can only be described as quintessential Weiner, the embattled candidate for New York City mayor veered from one uncomfortable subject to the next.

"I feel that what I've done has hurt her, yeah," he says about wife Huma Abedin.

Question: "Is Huma still helping out on campaign?"

Weiner: "She's helping out every day."

Question: "Do you know what her role will be in Hillary's 2016 campaign is going to be?

Weiner: "I do. I'm not telling you."

To the latest revelations that he continued sexting other women well after leaving Congress.

But his campaign for mayor has been more than a personal train wreck, he's had a few political ones as well.

No shocker that a recent poll found 80% for New Yorkers have an unfavorable view of Weiner. Numbers that likely were not helped when he dropped an F-bomb near the end of the interview.

The question for Weiner is whether he can stay in his lanes between now and Election Day.
