Anthony Weiner was once a rising star in the Democratic party thanks to an approach that was far from politically correct. A sexting scandal involving several different women did something his political opponents couldn't do when it effectively ended his political career.
While he claimed that sort of behavior is completely behind him, Anthony Weiner is still texting random women, according to one of his former mistresses. Sydney Leathers, who was the woman who took down the former U.S. Congressman when she went public with his sexts, is claiming he's doing it again.It should be pointed out that Leathers doesn't have first-hand knowledge of Weiner sending his body parts to other women, but she's seeing social media habits from him that point to his old actions. This time, Weiner's former mistress has been in contact with another woman who has talked to him via Skype and Facebook.
"Initially, I didn't believe it was legit," Leathers explained to Page Six. "It's his actual Facebook — and the [same] Facebook he used when he contacted me. This was the end of May. From what I gathered, they Skype. It's Anthony Weiner, he's not asking about the weather. [For me] he kept the vanilla stuff on Facebook and used 'Carlos Danger' for the other stuff."
Leathers said, according to the Superficial. The woman, who has managed to parlay her relationship with Weiner into a burgeoning porn career surfaced yet again shortly after the documentary Weiner aired.
The documentary is a deep dive into Anthony Weiner and why he allowed his political career to go down in flames. There were a number of women who reported he was sexting with them, but his affair with Leathers came to light after he claimed he was done with all of that.
It was the return to the sexting world that eventually killed any real chance for Weiner to make a political comeback. Those exchanges between the politician and Sydney Leathers were brought to light while he was trying to run for mayor of New York.
It's clear Leathers doesn't have a great deal of love for Weiner or "Carlos Danger," as he was known to her when they were engaging in their online romp. She made the claims that Weiner is still doing the same things he's claimed to stop several times now, while writing a review for the documentary.
Breitbart reports that while Leathers took her story about Anthony Weiner public, she has told this new woman to stay out of the limelight as long as possible. Of course, the adult film actress might have made that quite a bit more difficult since she has made new accusations against the politician.
"She was thinking about talking to press, I said, 'You shouldn't do that,' which would surprise people… but it was like, 'look what happened to me. It will impact future employment, relationships with friends and families.'"Whether these claims about Weiner are true, the timing of when they've come to light is interesting at the very least. Weiner is now closely tied to the Hillary Clinton campaign because he is still married to Huma Abedin.
Abedin has long been a confidant of Clinton. The two women have more in common than their party affiliation, considering Anthony Weiner and Bill Clinton have both had their fair share of sexual indiscretions. Unless this mystery woman decides to come out against Anthony Weiner, it appears we're only going to have Sydney Leathers' claims to go on.
Weiner has been steadfast in his claims he has nothing to do with that sort of online activity anymore. It's not entirely clear how further indiscretions by Anthony Weiner would affect the Clinton Campaign, but it would be an embarrassment if nothing else.
