As Anthony Weiner showed up to his “victory party” – even though he came in fifth place in New York City's Democratic primary - in New York City last night, he had a surprise waiting for him outside the bar where he was to give his concession speech, according to Fox News on Wednesday. While Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin and their baby didn’t show for the show, Weiner’s campaign-destroying sexting partner Sydney Leathers reappeared for 15 minutes more of fame – and she got it.
Leathers, 23, who has gone on to begin a porn career since getting her first round of 15 minutes of fame via Weiner’s cell phone, told reporters: “Why not be here? I’m kind of the reason he’s losing. So, might as well show up.” The truth likely is that she loved her first 15 minutes of fame, so why not recapture the headlines.
Weiner’s previously successful campaigning dead-ended when Leathers reignited the Weiner sexting issue by revealing that he had sexted with her long after he said he was basically cured of his sexting demons within.
After the somber concession speech at the event, Weiner quickly departed to a waiting car as a reporter asked him what will be in store for him tomorrow? Weiner responded with his middle finger – which was captured in a photo - as he was driven away.
