In fact, she claims he called himself that. Sydney Leathers — hand to god, that's her name — says she felt “manipulated” by the self-professed “perpetually horny middle-aged man.” Beware Weiner's fickle finger of sexting fate, young ladies.

The 23-year-old spoke to Inside Edition about the texts she exchanged with the mayoral candidate, in an interview to air Thursday. “I felt manipulated. Because obviously I felt like he’s saying one thing to me, say another thing to his wife, say another thing on the campaign,” she said.

She says the text messages were very explicit (yikes), and that they would have phone-sex at least twice a week.

When things cooled down between the pair, she says Weiner never worried about being outed:

“I feel like he suspected that this could happen but he didn’t do a lot to protect himself from it. He was making these campaign promises that he had totally changed and he was a better man now and he learned from his mistakes and I am proof that that is not true,” she said.

“Anthony Weiner is responsible for his downfall,” Leathers said. ”I feel sick about it. I’m disgusted by him. He is not who I thought he was.”

Interesting, he's exactly who most people thought he was. Ah, the blinding elixirs of lust and power. (Also, will the real Anthony Weiner please stand up? AHHH NEVERMIND.)

This whole thing just makes me so confused. Because...this is not an attractive man, by most standards. Is it a power thing? Like, is that a real thing that women are attracted to men in power even when they're unattractive jerks? Even when they don't actually have much power anymore? Beauty, beholder, blahblahblah I DON'T GET IT DOES NOT COMPUTE. The idea of being sexual with him makes me want to hurl.
