Only in America can you be caught in a lewd nude photo scandal, resign from office in disgrace, relaunch your political career as a candidate for the NYC mayoral race, face sexting scandals yet again during your campaign, and still be one of the frontrunners!
Were you able to keep up with all of that?
Former congressman Anthony Wiener seemed to be moving full steam ahead with his NYC mayoral campaign when this week, another woman came out of the woodwork to reveal she had a sexting relationship with him after he had already resigned from office.
Sydney Leathers is currently making the press rounds, speaking to Inside Edition about the online affair.
Their relationship began after Leathers sent Wiener a Facebook message in June of 2011 criticizing him for his previous sexting scandal. A year later, Wiener randomly replied by “poking” her on the social network and they sparked up a conversation.
They also exchanged risque text messages and phone calls.
“Anthony Weiner is responsible for his downfall,” said Leathers.”I feel sick about it. I’m disgusted by him. He is not who I thought he was.”
“How did he think he was going to get away with this again, again?” Producer Angie asked.
“Carlos Danger! He thought he was safe. Guys think they’re safe!” Carson responded. “He’s got some sort of a sickness.”
Even though Wiener is clearly in the wrong, Carson and Angie stressed that Leathers isn’t entirely innocent either.
“You can’t help but kind of feel sorry for her because he is a dirty, old man. I mean, he’s a pervert,” Carson said. “But, if you have the stomach to go back and do the reading of all of the texts, she poked him on Facebook. This girl, she bated this dude too! I mean, some of the things she wrote were filthy!”
“She’s the type that says, ‘Well, I apologized! I said I was sorry.’ Like, okay, well you said you were sorry, so we should forget what you did? Not the case,” Producer Angie added.
