INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Sydney Leathers continues to cash in on the notoriety she received from a political scandal in New York. The 23-year-old Indiana woman has even made an adult video.
It's a sordid tale that continues to generate interest on TV and radio as well as over the Internet. As long as Anthony Weiner stays in the race for Mayor of New York, Sydney Leathers finds new outlets for her story.
On the New York website xoJane.com she published a manual this week titled, "Ten Secrets for Seducing a Politician." She appears naked in an adult video based on the scandal and she talked about it with shock radio star Howard Stern.
"You had to say to yourself, 'this guy is one sick puppy,' right?" asked Stern. "Oh, totally," responded Leathers, "especially after the first scandal had already happened."
Weiner continues to pursue a campaign for the Democratic nomination for Mayor of New York, even promising not to quit in a TV ad.
"Quit isn't the way we roll in New York City," he says looking into the camera. "We fight through tough things."
And Sydney Leathers continues to make it tough on Weiner, appearing on HLN in an interview with Dr. Drew Pinsky.
"I sent him a message in 2011 on Facebook just expressing disappointment in his conduct," Leathers told him, "and then a little less than a year later he poked me back on Facebook and then the conversation started from there."
"When did it get sexual?” asked Dr. Drew. "Almost immediately," was the reply.
Polls show that Weiner has fallen from first to fourth since the scandal broke. Weiner says he wants to talk about ideas and won't comment on what Leathers is doing.
Leathers won't stop talking. With regard to her adult video, she told a New York reporter, "I'm not embarrassed."
