Anthony Weiner failed to give a clear “yes” or “no” answer Monday when a columnist for the New York Daily News asked him whether he was still “sexting” with anyone.

Instead, said the New York City mayoral candidate, “beginnings, middles and ends” are all debatable.

From the Daily News:

Q. There is no one you are sexting now?

A. You can quibble about beginnings, middles and ends but what we’re talking about is over a year ago.

UPDATE: The New York Daily News has issued a “clarification” to their interview, completely changing the question and adding a sentence to Weiner’s answer.

From the corrected article:

Q: And it was over a year ago? There’s been nothing else?

A: I mean, oh yeah, all that stuff is behind me. You can quibble about you know, beginnings, middles and ends, but it was basically a year ago.
