Weiner Scandal Grows, Sydney Leathers Speaks

The woman now at the center of the Anthony Weiner scandal says the best description of the former congressman is one he offered to her himself.

"That he was an argumentative, perpetually horny middle aged man."

In an interview with "Inside Edition," Sydney Leathers spoke candidly about her sexually suggestive relationship online and over the phone with Anthony Weiner last summer, a year after he resigned from Congress.

"He was making these campaign promises that he had totally changed and he was a better man and he learned from his mistakes," says Leathers. "... and I am proof that is not true."

Weiner, with his wife by his side, admitted Tuesday to a new round of lewd exchanges with women after he got caught and left office. On Thursday, for the first time, he put a number on the total.

"I don't believe I had any more than three," he says. As far as all together, "It's not dozens and dozens, it is 6 to 10, I suppose, but I can't tell you exactly what someone else is going to consider inappropriate or not."

When he launched is mayoral campaign, Weiner raised the possibility that other women may come forward. He now says it is behind him, but does not consider it an addition.

    Dear All,
    In America there are still big problems with racism. For example, the Southampton Bathing Club in Southampton Long Island (NY) which Chris Cuomo's wife, Cristina Greeven Cuomo, is reportedly a member of, is famed for not allowing blacks or Jews to join. How can someone belong to such a nazi like club? The Cuomo's surprise me. In England or Italy you don't have this.p.s That means CNN boss Jeff Zucker or Kate Bolduan's husband Michael Gershenson wouldn't be allowed in because they are Jewish! How awful racism is!
    Arrivederci dall'italia!
