New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner acknowledged that he participated in a newly revealed, sexually explicit social media exchange.

“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” Weiner, a former U.S. congressman, said Tuesday after The Dirty website released screen grabs of the chats.

Weiner has said that he expected more chats of the kind that led to his 2011 resignation from Congress to emerge. The Dirty claimed that the new set of chats were from 2012, after he had resigned.

Weiner in his statement did not say when he had the latest conversations to be revealed.

“While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong,” he said. “This behavior is behind me.”
