As news broke yesterday of Rep. Anthony Weiner coming clean with lying about sexting women that are not his wife, it was quickly heard that ABC had landed the first interview with one of the recipients.
Meagan Broussard is a single mom who just happened to "like" one of Weiner's speech videos online, which prompted him to contact her. He also had confirmed her as one of the ladies he was sextually active with online before the interview broke, so we know she isn't fibbing.
Here's what she has to say about it, and his initial denial:
"I just chuckled. It would be one thing if he came out and said, 'Hey, so what?' But now he's saying he got hacked?"
[On Facebook] "He would say just good morning, how are you doing, what are you doing today? What are you wearing? What do you like? You know, in the bedroom, you know, that sort of thing."
And then some concern arose over their relationship and this is what he said:
"You are not stalking me. I am stalking you."
That's super creepy. We're not even going to skate around that.
So how was she sure it was him at first?
"I asked him to take a picture and write 'me' on it so I would know."
Moments later, she received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org, an address listed on one of Weiner's campaign documents. The picture included in the email shows a man who appears to be Wiener.
And that pic totally had him holding a note that said "me" on it (above). Because, you know, when it comes to secrecy and keeping stuff under wraps that's the smart thing to do. He also sent that classy pic we showed that he labeled "me and the pussys."
"I don't think he's a bad guy. I think he's got issues just like everybody else. Everyone's standards are different, but to be elected to Congress and sit there all day on Facebook and chatting?
"I have my own life, my own things where I'm from and I just wanted to go ahead with them. I thought I could just be private about it, but there's no reason for me to hide. I didn't do anything wrong. I don't know him. I'm just putting my story out there before anyone else tries to."
While we're sure you're not to blame for his actions — he would have just found someone else — we don't completely agree that you didn't do anything "wrong." He IS married, and a public figure, so you knew that. Yet you engaged back. But like we said, you can't be blamed for his actions.
We hope things do get back to normal for you, though!
And let's hope Weiner keeps it sheathed if he doesn't plan on stepping down.
