In an interview with Inside Edition, Sydney Leathers, the latest woman to reveal her sexually explicit online relationship with New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, says that she believes the disgraced former congressman’s marriage to Huma Abedin is more of a business arrangement than a marriage.
“It almost feels to me like it’s [more] an arrangement or a business than a marriage,” Leathers told Inside Edition.
When interviewer Jim Moret asked Leathers if she thought Abedin, an aide to Hillary Clinton, was still with Weiner for “power” and “stature,” Leathers said, “I would agree with that.”
Leathers engaged in a sexual online relationship with Weiner last year in 2012, even after his resignation from congress two summers ago for the same behavior, but with different women. TheDirty.com published the explicit photos that Weiner sent to the college sophomore. He later admitted that he in fact had taken part in sexually charged online conversations both before and after his resignation.
Weiner and his wife addressed the matter in a press conference in New york City on Tuesday in which Abedin, who was speaking publicly for the first time, explained her decision to stay with the politician. Many feel Abedin is just in the relationship for”power.”
“If I was in her shoes I wouldn’t stay,” Leathers spoke about Abedin.
