Indiana woman: Anthony Weiner disgusted her


The Associated Press

NEW YORK — A southwestern Indiana woman who claims to have engaged in online sex chats with New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has confirmed her identity.

Twenty-three-year-old Sydney Leathers of Princeton told "Inside Edition" Thursday that Weiner disgusted her and that "he's not who I thought he was."

Leathers says Weiner started corresponding with her last July, more than a year after he stepped down from Congress and within weeks of a glowing People magazine cover story about his repaired marriage to Hillary Rodham Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Leathers says Weiner told her that he loved her and she reciprocated. But now she says she would tell the embattled mayoral candidate to "stop lying, stop embarrassing his wife and get help."
