Fallout Over Sexting Scandal Catching Up With Anthony Weiner
Despite declining poll numbers and reported pressure from the Clintons and others, Anthony Weiner stands his ground in New York mayoral race. INSIDE EDITION has the latest.
Anthony Weiner's sexting partner, 23-year-old college sophomore Sydney Leathers gets raunchy with, who else but America's Got Talent judge Howard Stern.
Sydney landed at New York's JFK airport Monday night, and judging by what she told Stern on his Sirius satellite radio show, Weiner should be bracing himself.
Leathers said on Stern's show, "I think he's like, 'I'm Anthony Weiner, I'm Carlos Danger. I'm going to do whatever I want.'"
She continued to reveal details, saying, "He loved me in heels. He loved pictures of me in heels."
"He was like a needy girlfriend or something. A clingy person," said Leathers.
Meanwhile, Weiner is making it clear that pressure from Bill and Hillary Clinton won't make him drop out of the mayoral race.
Weiner told reporters, "I am not terribly interested in what people who are not voters in the city of New York have to say. I am focused like a laser beam on their interests. I am focused like a laser beam on what they care about."
The Clintons reportedly see Weiner's campaign as an embarrassment and potential liability, should Hillary run for president in 2016.
Now, check this out—Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, a former top aide to Hillary was spotted in Washington, D.C. meeting with Philippe Reines, one of Hillary's top advisors.
Weiner's sexting scandal is definitely catching up with him. Once in the lead, a new poll finds that he's fallen 10 points since INSIDE EDITION's blockbuster exclusive interview with Sydney Leathers.
Former New York Governor Eliott Spitzer agrees, despite his own disgraceful sex scandal when he was in office.
On MSNBC's Hardball, Chris Matthews asked Spitzer, "You're not going to vote for Anthony Weiner. Can you just say that now? You don't think he should be mayor of New York."
"Fair point. That is correct," said Spitzer.
Weiner responded today, telling reporters, "Every New Yorker has to make a decision on who they're going to vote for, including Mr. Spitzer."
The leader of the Catholic Church in America, Cardinal Timothy Dolan was asked about the Weiner sexting scandal on CBS This Morning.
"I want to be as compassionate and merciful as possible, and don't want to judge anybody," said Cardinal Dolan.
Gayle King asked, "Do you believe in redemption?"
"Oh do I ever. I hope so, because I need it," said Dolan.
No surprise, the late night comics continue to pursue the Weiner scandal for all it's worth. Jimmy Fallon riffed on Weiner's online alter ego, Carlos Danger, wearing a wig and fake moustache.
Jay Leno said on The Tonight Show, "His campaign manager quit. I guess he felt Anthony was becoming overexposed."
