Sydney Leathers on Anthony Weiner's Guilty Plea: 'For Once, Something He Can't Get Himself Out Of'
"He's a predator," she told Inside Edition after Weiner pleaded guilty to sexting with a minor.
Sydney Leathers says she hopes Anthony Weiner goes to jail after pleading guilty to sexting with a minor.
"He has kind of gotten away with a lot," Leathers told Inside Edition on Friday. "He’s gotten slaps on the wrists for certain things. I think for once this might be something he can’t get himself out of."
Weiner copped a plea to sexting with a minor as his wife, Huma Abedin, officially filed for divorce from the disgraced former politician.
He broke down in tears as he stood before a judge saying "my impulses have destroyed my life."
Weiner admitted sending explicit photos and texts to a 15-year-old girl who told DailyMail.com last year that the former New York congressman would “pretend like he was a teacher and I was a student.”
Weiner must now register as a sex offender and faces up to 27 months behind bars.
“I was worried he would just get away with it completely,” Leathers said. “I am glad that there will be some punishment.”
She continued: “I don’t feel bad for him in any way. I don’t think that anyone should feel bad for him in any way... He is not the victim, he is a predator. The only person you should feel bad for is the victim because she is a child."
Leathers had a sexting relationship with Weiner in 2013 when he called himself "Carlos Danger."
She says when the 15-year-old girl reached out to her she encouraged her to go to the FBI, a scandal that threw Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign into a tailspin.
Leathers said she hopes the teenager knows she is the victim.
“I hope she knows she didn’t do anything wrong,” Leathers said.
Weiner's soon to be ex-wife has asked that all details pertaining to her divorce remain sealed. She's also said to be marketing a book. The Hollywood Reporter says she's hoping to be $2 million to tell her story.
