Sydney Leathers said she had 'no choice' but to come forward

Last month, Anthony Weiner admitted that he had sent explicit text messages after his resignation from Congress in 2011.

He maintained in a recent news conference that his racy online behavior ended last summer, but Sydney Leathers, a 23-year-old Indiana native, says "Carlos Danger," the New York City mayoral candidate's online screen name, sexted her as recently as April 12.

    I think we have another publicity hound (so to speak) on our hands with this woman. Wonder if that's her real name, or the one she uses for her "movies".

    Weiner doesn't need to become mayor – he needs therapy.
    The fact that he, along with that two-faced loudmouth Spitzer, are running for any state office is truly frightening.

    Weiner's a disgusting creep, but she's no victim. Just saw a link to a news article that says she's going to try her hand in the "blue" movie business. His bad behavior allowed her the means for a desired end.

    If that's the case, then she has a good name for it.

    Although it is not a profession I would have chosen for myself, I do wish her the best of luck in her career choice.

    well, I guess that's the way it goes in this country of ours . . . Of All the rocket scientists, scientists, inventors, people with a dozen masters degrees next to their name, people with PHD's, MD's, Doctorates, attorneys, lawyers, people who are 4.0 since grade school, and throughout college, and knows al-trig, calculus, knows more about geometry than any average person out there, and are the smartest in the most difficult things and subjects that any school or college would have to offer, (people that are so smart in this country, this is what we have to vote for . . . )
    "lesser of the 2 evils" "dumb & dumber" "stupid & stupider" amazing, isn't it ?? pathetic I tell ya, Just pathetic . . .

    Of course she had "no choice" but to come forward. A reality show on "E!", or, at a bare minimum, a closet full of Manolo Blahnik shoes, are on the line.

    I'm sorry, but when you are 23 years old and you knowingly engage in some kind of cyber-fling with a middle-aged man, it shows a horrible lack of judgement on her part. The idea that she would leverage this horrible decision into some career as an adult actress does not show a sense of civic duty, it shows a need to be a narrcissistic performer. Is this what she wants her parents to say their child has become?
