Sydney Elaine Leathers has been identified as the woman who ‘received illicit messages and had phone sex with Anthony Weiner,’ about one year after his wife Huma Abedin forgave him. Sydney Leathers, is a former Obama campaign worker from Illinois.
Sydney Elaine Leathers is a 23-year-old blogger for the Indiana Progressive Liberals and was a field organizer for Obama’s re-election campaign. She once named Weiner as a political hero online.
Weiner and wife Huma Abedin made a joint appearance earlier on Tuesday saying that the latest revelations of extra-marital sexual exchanges will not cause him to drop out of the race for New York City Mayor.
Following the scandal, Weiner later carried on with his mayoral campaign, making a stop at a Gay Men’s Health Crisis Mayoral Forum on HIV/AIDS in the city. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is now leading the race; she has not released a statement regarding the latest Weiner revelations.
It appears she is an admirer of Anthony Weiner, as he’s listed third on a list of ‘heroes’ that she posted on her website, after President Obama in first place and Bill Maher in second.
Her other heroes include Bernie Sanders, Julian Assange, Keith Olbermann, Alan Grayson, Rachel Maddow, Jon Stewart and Charlie Sheen.

I give Huma Abebin credit for standing next to Anthony Weiner and for even utter one word for support for him. Most women, including me, would have let him face the music alone. Carlos Danger doesn’t need political office, he needs psychiatric or psychological help.
