In an interview with NY1's Political Anchor Errol Louis, Democratic candidate for mayor Anthony Weiner reveals that he has hired Camille Joseph to run his campaign.

Joseph worked on the re-election campaign of President Barack Obama and served as a legislative assistant to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Weiner's previous campaign, Danny Kedem, resigned last week.

The former congressman also defends how he chose to reveal the number and timeline of lewd messages and images he sent over the internet.

Weiner tells Errol Louis, “And I guess the question becomes: Well, what was my obligation? Was it to say all right to say, 'This person and that person and this was the time and this was the date,' and say, 'I'm going to decide I'm going to out everyone who was involved in these conversations with me, whether it was good for them or bad for them or indifferent?' And I said I wasn't going to do that. So to some degree, this notion that I haven't been completely transparent, yes, I haven't let people into every last embarrassing thing that I did. But I gave them a pretty good summary.”

To see the entire interview with Weiner, including what he wants to do in his first 100 days in office if he is elected mayor, watch "The Road To City Hall" at 7 and 10 p.m.
