(NYC Mayoral Candidate) Weiner’s Sexting Partner: He Told Me He Loved Me

Sydney Leathers is the girl who came forward with more Anthony Weiner sex scandal info.

The woman at the center of Anthony Weiner‘slatest sexting scandal is speaking out today for the first time, in an interview with Inside Edition.Sydney Leathers, a 23-year-old Democrat from Indiana, said she was “shocked” that he “would be so foolish as to do the same thing all over again.”

“He was making these campaign promises that he’d totally changed,” Leathers said of his public persona, “that he was a better man now and had learned from his mistakes, and I am proof that that is not true.”

From her Inside Edition interview:

“I cared about him a lot,” she said in an exclusive interview set to air tomorrow, but admitted she didn’t quite love him at the time. “He was very important to me.”

Leathers says her feelings have since changed, especially after watching the disgraced former congressman at Tuesday’s press conference with his wife, Huma Abedin. “I’m disgusted by him. He’s not who I thought he was,” she said. She also offered Abedin a tear-filled apology.

As Weiner was preparing for his mayoral campaign, Leathers said he asked her to delete their correspondences. “He was trying to be someone he wasn’t,” she explained.

Leathers is one of at least three women Weiner has now admitted to having sexually-explicit correspondences with since his resignation from Congress in 2011. Leathers, an Indiana native, is a 23-year-old former field organizer for the Obama campaign.

Rep Weiner Resigns, Heckled. Breitbart reacts


Via Politico:

Lawmakers attributed Weiner’s failure to survive the scandal to a unique combination of factors: The racy pictures and texts were publicly available, he lied privately, publicly, proactively and repeatedly, and he had alienated many of his colleagues over the years with abrasive conduct, including a propensity to treat them and his own staff poorly.

Other than a handful of close friends who spoke up for him behind closed doors, no one was anxious to help break his fall.

On Thursday, political professionals marveled at Weiner’s decision to gather the media once again just so he could announce his resignation.

Perhaps he felt a commitment to the many liberals who had encouraged him to stay in office on cable television programs and in blog posts and Tweets.

Actor Danny DeVito had encouraged him to stay in office and progressive television personalities attacked his detractors by noting that other lawmakers had been allowed to stay in office after committing acts of malfeasance and sexual misconduct.

Perhaps Weiner just couldn’t stand not to win one more media cycle.

Either way, the denouement was classic Weiner: Live and on national television.

Abrahms turns the tables on Spitzer

Mediaite.com and former MSNBC personality Dan Abrahms had an interesting exchange on CNN:

Abrams noted that the media was “initially skeptical because [the story] was coming from Andrew Breitbart,” and never quite picked it up, giving Rep. Weiner the benefit of the doubt. Spitzer then asked what the graver issue in the scandal was– the actual illicit behavior, or the cover-up: “If Anthony Weiner had stood up at the first moment and said ‘let me be open…’ would he have been able to overcome this?”

“He had a much better chance,” Abrams replied, turning to the host by way of example. “Let me ask you…” Abrams began, “I think this is something that you know about.” Spitzer, on his part, seemed to be taken a bit off-guard by the question and initially chuckled, but answered somberly that he had empathy for the Congressman, having been in a similar situation. “I sympathize with Anthony Weiner. I know he is going through torment like virtually no other.” That said, he concluded that Rep. Weiner’s reaction to the discovery did him in: “his greatest sin from the perspective of the public was not being truthful at the moment of crisis.”
