Democrat Anthony Weiner was heckled last night during his first public appearance since news broke this week that he was still sending naked photos to young women.
Weiner was jeered and later cheered during a debate in the Bronx.
The New York mayoral candidate also told reporters he was in therapy.

Capital New York reported on the sideshow:
At yesterday’s debate in the Bronx, the Democratic mayoral candidates fielded a wide array of questions, just as they have at countless debates before. But they knew what the story would be.
On their way into the debate, former comptroller Bill Thompson and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio made it clear they thought Anthony Weiner should drop out of the race. Separately, they said the public and the media wouldn’t be able to focus on issues if Weiner, and his sexting scandal, kept distracting everyone.
Related: The New York Post sent a reporter to the event in a mask and hat, calling himself “Carlos Danger.”
De Blasio said if it hadn’t been for Weiner, the mayor’s veto of two police oversight bills would have been on the front page of the papers and the story that everyone was talking about.
