Anthony Weiner, a former congressman who is running for mayor of New York City, has had a rough few weeks. He was recently caught in a “sexting” scandal after it was revealed that he exchanged naughty pictures with a much younger woman—23-year-old Sydney Leathers—as recently as last summer, while still married. This was the second time that the politician had been caught up in a scandal like this.
The scandal has only gotten more heated over the past week with new details surfacing. It turns out that Leathers is an experienced sugar baby who knows how to get what she wants from older men, and she apparently isn’t opposed to doing whatever it takes. The young woman actually had a detailed profile on a popular sugar daddy matchmaking web site and, according to a press release from the site, she was “very popular” and “found success as a sugar baby.”
Although Leathers has since deactivated her profile, a screenshot revealed that she described herself as “naughty but nice,” and that she’s on the hunt for a discreet relationship where both parties get “what they desire.” Sources claim that Leathers made anywhere from $200 to $4,000 communicating, sharing pictures, and having dinner with rich, older sugar daddies.
Leathers recently sat down with radio host Howard Stern to discuss the scandal. She claimed that Weiner pursued her via Facebook and after she agreed to send him lewd pictures, he returned the favor. Leather also touched on why their sugar daddy relationship turned sour. “He was just this needy little b*tch, basically,” said Leathers, adding, “It actually was a turn-off. That’s part of why things started to fizzle out, because he was clingy with me. He would get pissy with me over, you know, guys complimenting me on Facebook, just weird sh*t like that. I’m like, ‘You’re married. I’m single,’ you know?”
When asked why she decided to tell the world now about their sugar daddy relationship, Leathers admitted that she felt angry that he was telling the world that he had changed after luring her into the relationship and then refusing to own up to his actions. “What pissed me off was him on the campaign trail saying ‘Oh, I’ve changed,’ and trying to act like he has this perfect marriage now and everything’s just peachy,” said Leathers. “I was like, bullsh*t. I’m proof that you have not changed.”
What do you think: Should Anthony Weiner drop out of the mayoral race, or should his personal life be set apart from his professional life?
