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.
