NEW YORK (AP) -- Anthony Weiner says he's not dropping out of the New York City mayoral race in light of newly revealed explicit online correspondence with a young woman.

And his wife, Huma Abedin, is standing by him.

Weiner admitted on Tuesday to exchanging racy photos and having X-rated chats with a woman he met online. He had resigned his House seat in June 2011 after acknowledging having sexual conversations with at least a half-dozen women.

The newly revealed correspondence was posted Monday by the gossip website The Dirty. The woman involved was not identified. She says their online relationship began in July 2012 and lasted for six months.

Abedin says Weiner "made some horrible mistakes," but that she has forgiven him and believes in him.
