People' highlights Weiner's contradictions from 2012 exclusive

In summer 2012, People magazine was the first to get an interview with New York mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner (D) after he resigned from Congress amid a sexting scandal.

"Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin (joined by baby son Jordan) were the picture of a family tested, but healed and happy again, with Anthony's sexting habit kicked," People recalls in a new article remembering its exclusive. "Now, he tells a very different version of What I Did Last Summer, calling it 'a rough time in our marriage.'"

The article is a then-and-now look at Weiner since the interview, examining how Weiner has essentially gone from what was supposed to be a rehabilitated cyber sex addict to a guy who never really changed.

From the article:

THEN: The Best Husband

Weiner said in the July 2012 interview that he went through therapy around the time of his June 16, 2011 resignation from Congress – "It was early on: May, June. When this all was going down." He emphasized that he was diligent about behaving. "Every day since this has happened, I've tried to become a better person, a husband that Huma deserves and as good a father as I can be. And I've explored every way to try to do those things and I'm committed to continuing on that path."  ...

NOW: It Was a Rough Time

Weiner, who is running for the Democratic nomination in New York City's mayoral race, told Tuesday's press conference that his sexting continued well past PEOPLE's July 2012 story – at least into that August. And, according to one recipient of his lewd messages and photos, reportedly as late as November 2012.
