UPDATE: Despite an NBC report to the contrary, it appears Anthony Weiner was in attendance at the mayoral forum.

EARLIER:

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.

Weiner has plummeted in the polls since admitting he continued to sext women well beyond his resignation from Congress. He's now in fourth place.

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.
