I've never known anyone with an ego like that': Anthony Weiner consulted his online mistress about his NY Times profile


Sydney Leathers, former sext mistress to New York mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner (D) and amateur political media consultant.

Leathers, who recently released photos and explicit sext messages between her and Weiner, described the evolution of their relationship to the Washington Post:

At first, they wrote or talked every day — soon with risque texts, explicit photos and phone sex. “I’ve never met anyone with an ego like that. It was all about him.” The relationship was their hot, guilty secret, though the two never met in person, but it was over by the end of last year.

Then, in April, Weiner called to get her reaction to a flattering New York Times profile of himself and his wife, Huma Abedin. Leathers said that it was fine, but the next day, Weiner e-mailed to say that his brother wanted to know whether she was upset. That scared her, because she was unaware that his brother even knew about the affair. “The whole situation,” she said, “freaked me out.”
