A 26-year-old single mother who claimed to have a month-long electronic relationship with disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner today revealed details of their explicit online exchanges.
Megan Broussard told how Weiner started pursuing her online after she ‘liked’ a YouTube video of one of his speeches.
She claims that they exchanged hundreds of messages and he even called her from his New York congressional office - an allegation he denies.
Broussard said she wanted to come forward now out of concerns for her own image as an aspiring nurse, and that of her 3-year-old daughter, should her identity be leaked online. More than a dozen photos sent by Broussard to email@example.com and a second account she believed was Weiner's were obtained and licensed from her by ABC News.
"I have my own life, my own things where I'm from and I just wanted to go ahead with them. I thought I could just be private about it, but there's no reason for me to hide," she said. "I didn't do anything wrong. I don't know him. I'm just putting my story out there before anyone else tries to."

The woman from Texas said that they immediately began messaging each other through Facebook chat and exchanged 'hundreds of messages', many of a sexual nature.
During one Facebook conversation, Miss Broussard said she voiced uneasiness with the ‘online relationship’, to which she said Weiner replied, ‘you are not stalking me....I am stalking you’.
