Indiana state Rep. Justin Moed (D) apologized this week after it was reported that he had been sexting with Sydney Leathers, the same young woman who sexted with former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner.
In 2013, TheDirty.com revealed that Weiner, who was running for mayor of New York City, had been sexting with Leathers. At the time, Leathers gave an interview to "Inside Edition" about the relationship, and even teared up when feeling guilty about Weiner's wife (video below).
This time, The Dirty.com published an Amazon.com receipt for a pink leash and collar that Moed bought Leathers, texts from "Bitch Boy" to Leathers and purported naked pictures of Moed's behind that he allegedly sent to Leathers.
Leathers, who became a porn star after the Weiner scandal, told FoxNews.com that Moed was sexting with her.
An unidentified source told FoxNews.com that sexts between “Bitch Boy” and Leathers showed that “Bitch Boy” knew about the Weiner scandal.
Moed, who is engaged to be married, released a statement to The Indianapolis Star:
I am truly sorry I have hurt the ones I love most with my poor judgment. I am committed to rebuilding trust with my family and my community. This is a private matter and I ask for it to be treated as such. I apologize to my constituents and to everyone I have let down.
While Leathers and Moed never met, she told Page Six, "This guy is into some really freaky stuff. He wanted to be forced to wear a French maid outfit and clean my house while I degraded him. He wanted to be tied up and left in a closet to watch me have sex with my boyfriend."
Reports say that Moed was careful to use a prepaid PayPal card when buying gifts for Leathers, but wasn’t aware that his name popped up on the Amazon.com purchase.
“I’m a little speechless,” Leathers added. “I Googled him and found out he’s a lawmaker. Apparently only politicians can pick up on my pheromones.”
Moed and his fiancee reportedly removed their Facebook pages, and Moed took down a "Bitch Boy" Twitter page that allegedly belonged to him.
