Embattled mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner cancelled his appearance at a mayoral forum Tuesday, according to NBC News.
He is still scheduled to appear in the Bronx later in the evening.
One of his sexting partners, Sydney Leathers, has gone public. On Tuesday she told Howard Stern that Weiner was "too busy jacking off" to run New York City.
