Former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s former sext-object showed up at the underdog mayoral candidate’s campaign “victory party” at Connolly’s pub tonight with a message of her own.
“He needs some sex therapy,” said Sydney Leathers to the horde of reporters that crowded around her outside Connolly’s Pub and Restaurant, when asked about what’s next for Weiner.
“He should have dropped out of the race a long time ago,” said Ms. Leathers, who described herself as “obviously passionate about politics,” and sees herself with a future behind the scenes, maybe as a writer.
Although she once backed Council Speaker Christine Quinn in the race, Ms. Leathers appears to have flipped her support over to front-running Democrat Bill de Blasio, the city’s public advocate.
“He’s a progressive, like me,” she explained.
