There is more fallout after married Congressman Anthony Weiner admitted several online sexual relationships.
Weiner says he is not stepping down and members of his own party are asking for an ethics investigation.
After more than a week of denials, Weiner was emotional and apologetic at a press conference Monday where he admitted to posting a lewd photo on twitter accidentally.
He also admitted to having online relationships with several women for about 6 years.
"I am deeply sorry for the pain this has caused my wife Huma, our family, my constituents, my friends, supporters and staff," Weiner said.Sign up to follow RepWeiner on Twitter
Representative Weiner said none of the relationships were physical.
Nancy Pelosi says that she is asking for an ethics investigation.
