…here’s a reporter drawing one on TV.
A 23-year-old political activist is the latest woman in Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal, allegedly, and apparently, this one took place a year after he resigned from office in disgrace.
The woman (identified by Buzzfeed as ‘Sydney Leathers’) released copies of explicit conversations with Weiner and pictures of his genitals that she claims he sent her.
Sydney was a field organizer for Obama’s re-election campaign. She carried on a relationship for months with Weiner, who went by ‘Carlos Danger’ online.
The bad news for Weiner is the timeline. This relationship allegedly happened last Summer, while he was supposed to be working on his marriage.
Yesterday, Weiner and his wife held a press conference on the topic and said they knew more of this would be coming out, but they were fine and moving forward with his bid for New York Mayor.
According to the woman, Weiner promised to help her get a job at Politico.com. The woman also alleged that she and Weiner had phone sex on multiple occasions and sent one another nude photos.
She told The Dirty.com: “This was a bad situation for me because I really admired him. Even post scandal, I thought he was misunderstood. Until I got to know him. I thought I loved him. Pretty pathetic”.
Later, she said, he asked her to delete their emails.
From the redditor who posted:
“Luckily, the bar owner was more than happy to release the footage.”
Thank you, bar owner.
….cool it! It’s people like you that have those kids – you know, the ones who make scenes out in public?
While Anthony Weiner answered questions about his more recent sexting scandals, an older gentleman was seen peeking from a cubicle behind him.
He has become known as “cubicle guy,” and could be WOR NYC reporter Jeff McKinney.
Publicity stunt? Maybe. Intoxicated girl wanting to end it all over a breakup? Maybe. Either way, these three stuntmen are pretty badass, sneaking through her apartment and quickly attaching a harness so she couldn’t fall before pulling her back up. Good job guys!
Comedian Andy Gross scared the pants off of several passersby by seemingly removing himself from his pants. Somehow, he created an amazing illusion that he appeared to be walking with his upper torso cut off from the remainder of his body at the waist.
When he is discovered by unsuspecting park walkers he makes sure to give out an extra for dramatic effect.

On July 17, Rolling Stone revealed that the one still-living alleged Boston Marathon bomber would grace the iconic magazine’s cover. Immediately after the announcement was made public, countless individuals unleashed their outrage via social media, condemning Rolling Stone for glamorizing a brutal terrorist and perpetuating the idea that sensational acts of violence will make you famous.
Disturbed / Device singer David Draiman led the charge of rockers who slammed Rolling Stone, writing anin-depth criticism which was widely shared by music outlets. More musicians stepped forward to voice their opinions via Twitter yesterday, including Dave Navarro, Scott Ian, Tommy Lee and many others.
I understand journalism but @RollingStone has disrespected the families of the Boston bombing victims 100%.
Why not put photos of the victims and families on the cover and let that tell the story of courage and heartbreak? You could keep the photo of this terrorist inside if need be and report your story.I am sure you are aware of the pain you were about to cause all the families when you went to print…
I know journalism isn’t pretty when you have the face of evil staring back at you but why put him on the cover of a supposed music oriented magazine? You treat him with the same honor as those of us who have made the cover based on our craft?
I agree with many of my peers and I hope Rolling Stone can take responsibility and issue an apology to everybody who’s lives has been affected…
Is this weird? Really, what’s going on here? Something tells us this kid wouldn’t need his mother’s help if he had been raised to go out and take what is rightfully his from day one.
