El journalism:

Weiner's candidacy has been derailed over the past week by reports that he engaged in online sexual conversations even after he resigned from Congress, using the online alias Carlos Danger.

"Why did you pick a Hispanic name and how dangerous were you really?" asked Satcha Pretto, the Univision host.

"It was a joke in my personal life between me and one person," Weiner responded. "I'm not going to comment about the information that that person has chosen to release. They can do whatever they want. They can try to harm me in any way they want."

Weiner, who has avoided the press at recent campaign stops, spent most of the 11-minute interview imploring voters, and the media to focus on "New York's future," twice using the Spanish phrase "ya basta," which translates roughly to "enough already!"
