New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner goes into damage control mode over a second sexting scandal threatening to derail his campaign. (4:28)

>> John: WELCOME TO THE DAILY

SHOW.

I AM JOHN OLIVER.

I AM STILL SITTING IN FOR JON

STEWART WHO IS ON TOUR WITH HIS

JAZZ QUARTET.

THOSE GUYS CAN BLOW.

OUR GUEST TONIGHT FROM THE NEW

MOVIE THE SPECTACULAR NOW

ACTRESS SHAILENE WOODLEY IS WITH

US.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

BUT WE BEGIN WITH AN EVENT AS

SHOCKING AS IT WAS DEPRESSINGLY

PREDICTABLE.

YOU MAY REMEMBER THAT LAST WEEK

WE COVERED FORMER CONGRESSMAN

ANTHONY WEANER AND THE FACT THAT

HE WASN'T JUST RUNNING FOR MAYOR

OF NEW YORK CITY BUT LEADING IN

THE POLLS.

WELL, SINCE THEN, THERE HAS BEEN

A BIT OF A KOCH-UP IN HIS

CAMPAIGN.

>> TWO YEARS AFTER A TAWDRY SEX

STING SCANDAL CHASED HIM FROM

CONGRESS, ANTHONY WEINER IS

BEGGING FOR FORGIVENESS AGAIN.

TURNS OUT HE CONTINUED SENDING

LEWD MESSAGES AND PHOTOS TO AT

LEAST ONE WOMAN EVEN AFTER HE

WAS FORCEDDED TO RESIGN FROM

CONGRESS.

>> John: HE DID IT AGAIN?

WHY DID HE EVEN NEED TO DO THAT?

WHO DID HE THINK HAD POSSIBLY

NOT SEEN HIS PHOTO FROM LAST

TIME?

DID HE THINK THAT A WOMAN MIGHT

HAVE BEEN IN A COMA DURING THE

FIRST GO-ROUND?

AND NEEDED TO BE DROPPED IN.

SO TWO YEARS AGO THIS PHOTO

CAUSED A SCANDAL THAT COST HIM

HIS POLITICAL CAREER.

AND JUST AS HIS POLITICAL CAREER

WAS BEING RESURRECTD, THIS NEW

PHOTO... DEAL WITH IT.

YOU JUST SAW THAT.

YOU CANNOT UNSEE WHAT YOU JUST

SAW.

NOW, AMERICA IS COLLECTIVELY

EXPERIENCING DEJA-EWWWWWW.

ALTHOUGH THIS TIME THERE ARE

SOME AWESOME DEVELOPMENTS.

AND HERE IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE

ONE.

>> NEW ALLEGATIONS THAT HE KEPT

ON SEXT-ING UNDER THE ALIAS

CARLOS DANGER.

(LAUGHING).

>> John: YES.

YOU HEARD RIGHT.

HE CALLS HIMSELF CARLOS DANGER.

ANTHONY WEINER ALTER EGO IS A

BOLIVIAN ACTION HERO SLASH PORN

STAR.

DANGER IS MY USER NAME.

♪ DANGER, DANGER ♪♪

>> John: YOU MIGHT THINK THAT

ANYONE CAUGHT IN A SITUATION

THIS MORTIFYING WOULD HAVE NO

CHOICE BUT TO JUST WITHDRAW FROM

THE MAYORAL RACE IMMEDIATELY,

BUT YOU DON'T KNOW CARLOS.

>> FORMER CONGRESSMAN ANTHONY

WEINER SAYS A NEW SCANDAL WILL

NOT STOP HIS CAMPAIGN TO BECOME

NEW YORK CITY MAYOR.

HE WILL BE OUT ON THE CAMPAIGN

TRAIL LATER TODAY.

>> John: WOW.

THAT MAN HAS GOT BALLS.

AND A PENIS.

THAT HE CLEARLY CAN'T CONTROL.

BY THE WAY, A FUN FACT THERE.

AS THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL IS WHAT

ANTHONY WEINER CALLS THAT LINE

OF HAIR FROM HIS BELLY BUTTON TO

HIS... (LAUGHING).

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

HE BROUGHT ALL OF THIS ON YOU.

IF THERE WAS ANY DOUBT OF THE

DEGREE TO WHICH HE HAS LEARNED

NOTHING FROM HIS PREVIOUS

SCANDAL, HE'S MANAGING TO HANDLE

THIS ONE WITH EVEN LESS CLASS.

AT LEAST IN 2011 HE EXPRESSED

SHAME AND REGRET.

AT YESTERDAY'S PRESS CONFERENCE,

THERE WAS A DIFFERENT TONE.

>> ARE YOU READY TO GO?

GOOD AFTERNOON.

MY NAME IS IS ANTHONY WEINER

DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR

OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK.

I HAVE SAID THAT OTHER TEXTS AND

PHOTOS WERE LIKELY TO COME OUT.

TODAY THEY HAVE.

>> John: HOLD ON.

LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT.

YOU'RE SPINNING THIS BY SAYING,

SEE, I WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG.

I MADE A PROMISE THAT THERE WAS

MORE SLEAZE OUT THERE AND I'M

MAN OF MY WORD.

WEINER, 2013.

BY THE WAY JUST A QUICK SHOUTOUT

TO THE GUY BEHIND THE CUBICLE

FOR GIVING THE WHOLLY VENT THE

GRAVITAS OF A GAME OF... THERE

ARE TWO MEN IN THAT PHOTO WHO

HAD THEIR HEADS POP OUT AT

INAPPROPRIATE MOMENTS.

I CAN DO T
