According to a TODAY Show report, Anthony Weiner told supporters in an email Wednesday that he won't abandon his campaign for mayor after admitting he engaged in raunchy online affairs as recently as a year ago, long after his resignation from Congress.

Weiner, who has been leading in some Democratic polls, said he owed supporters an explanation after the new report Tuesday that he carried on another online affair under the name Carlos Danger.

"These things I did, as you have read in the papers, didn't happen once. It was a terrible mistake that I unfortunately returned to during a rough time in our marriage," he wrote.

Weiner said he had already been clear in the past that he had carried on several relationships over an extended period of time, with multiple people. But he says now he was not clear enough about the timeline.

"I regret not saying explicitly when these exchanges happened," he wrote.

The woman told The Dirty she was 22 when she began chatting with Weiner on the social networking site Formspring. She said their online relationship lasted for six months, and that they exchanged nude photos and engaged in frequent phone sex.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
