"Indiana Democratic lawmaker forced to apologize for sexting with the same woman who was at the center of Anthony Weiner's sexting scandal."

Link.

Details here:
According to Fox411, [Justin] Moed sent graphic sexual texts to [Sydney] Leathers using the Twitter handle "Bitch Boy." The sexting relationship started when Moed responded to Leathers' Twitter post in February in which she said she was looking for a "new, legitimate #findom slave. Must actually be willing to spend money or you are useless to me."...

"I’m a little speechless," [Leathers] said. "I Googled him and found out he’s a lawmaker. Apparently only politicians can pick up on my pheromones.... Is he displaying poor judgment by sexting me of all people? Obviously... But should sexual situations define politicians? They are human, after all."

Carlos Danger is a much cooler name.

"Bitch Boy" is going to be this year's hot Halloween costume.

Weiner was stupid enough, but any politician doing the same thing after his example is weapons grade stupid.

YoungHegelian said...

Being a pervert is one thing. Everyone is entitled to their own perversions.

Being a stupid pervert is another, especially when welded to being a stupid pervert in public office!

Twitter is death, people. Never put anything more controversial than your Mom's recipe for fudge brownies on Twitter.

How embarrassing and such poor judgment.

A pink shirt and solid purple tie.

Michael Fitzgerald said...

Miss Leathers correspondence with Hillary was personal, and those emails were deleted.

traditionalguy said...

Maybe a Democrat politician especially seeks anywhere for a release from the build up of Sin burdens in the conscience. That is a good sign. I hope he finds what he needs.

This hit the local news a couple days ago - I was going to email this to you, Professor, but I knew you'd get to it. And I was busy.

He is "truly sorry" for being caught and is now "committed to rebuilding trust". This is, of course, a "private matter".

As YoungHegelian said, being a pervert is one thing...being stupid is quite another. Even dopey teens know not to text nude pics that identify you.

Dave Schumann said...

@YoungHegelian on twitter, "your Mom's fudge brownies" would sound dirty

Franklin said...

She's quite the Shiksa!

Or, wait, is Leathers Jewish?

Franklin said...

Also, you can't find his party affiliation anywhere...so obviously it's (D)irtbag.

Thank god.

Drago said...

Countdown to garage claiming this a Breitbart hack: 5..4..3..

Known Unknown said...

Maybe Leathers is a Rove operative.

D. B. Light said...

Is Ms. Leathers an operative of the "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" tasked with luring fine, upstanding Democrats to their doom? Just asking.

Known Unknown said...

I see you've used "the stupid party" tag but this man in question is not a Republican.

Anonymous said...

Countdown to Drago bringing either my name or Garage's name into the thread, even tho neither of us has commented about this post.

5...4...

whoops! Nevermind the countdown, it already happened.

The Drill SGT said...

LOL,

She has an IMDB entry.

Sydney Leathers is a 23-year-old political activist, who was born in southern Indiana, but grew up in southern Illinois.

Sydney has always been very passionate about politics, so passionate that it ultimately made headline news. Sydney exposed politician Anthony Weiner and admitted she was his sexting partner in the middle of his campaign for Mayor of NYC. Sydney then went on her own media campaign, disgracing the politician in hopes he would drop out of the race for Mayor of NYC.

Althouse,

The Stupid Party is the GOP.

The Criminal Party is the organized Crime Gang of Racist Thugs

Since he was engaged, what he did was wrong.

But what is wrong with this woman? Why does she blab about her sexting relationships. Is nothing private with her?

It may have been said that history repeats itself, first as tragedy then as farce. This whole episode indicates it is more like farces all the way down.

MadisonMan said...

I would guess a craving for attention.

I wonder how long the Lawmaker's engagement will last.

traditionalguy said...

I see he represents downtown Indianapolis. So his voters should see nothing wrong with conduct that is "just sex."

And the War on Women is never applicable to Dems., which is only fair since they are the free birth control and free abortions Party.

she's a "Reality TV Star"

One of those people for whom, no publicity is bad publicity

jr565 said...

I never understand the guys who want to be bitch boys for gold diggers. She says up front "Must actually be willing to spend money or you are useless to me."..."
So now that the terms are out of the way, lets acknowledge she's a prostitute. What are you getting for your money?
If you go to an actual prostitute you can spend a couple hundred bucks and get the same thing. Sex with a woman who wants you to pay her for sex with you.
But you wont get strung along. Or have to buy her a car or something.
These guys think the stripper dancing on the pole for them really likes them. No, fool. You're paying her way through college.

jr565 said...

and if you're a man, especially a politician, DON'T text this woman. She will blab it all over town!

mccullough said...

The article didn't say if he knew she was Weiner's sexting partner all along.

Does she have the same twitter handle as she used with Weiner?

madAsHell said...

findom

A combination of 2 words: financial domination. Financial domination is a very real fetish involving a submissive being "forced" to give money to the Dominant. Terms like money slave, paypig, moneypig, walletslave, wallet rape are all part of the play involved in this type of Domination and submission.


This I did not know. Hell....I thought it was a typo.

Matt Sablan said...

... Well, I'm done.

The Internet can't get any sillier today.

Freeman Hunt said...

I had to google "findom." That's funny.

No wonder he's a Democrat. If he raises your taxes, he thinks he's doing you a big favor.

I had a traumatic walk on the way home from work.

I started percolating and immediately needed to spray.

I ate a vegan taco from chipolte, extra hot sauce.

The streets were full of fab peeps.

I ended up running into this alley and spraying on a fab brownstone. I had no tissues....just an organic doggy poop bag-which did not offer much help. My spray made the brownstone look similar to a Jackson Pollack painting.

I had to walk 4 blocks and my 16 year old prostate was burning. I almost started to cry. My natural fab runway walk now was something not fab at all-more like a waddle.

I walked four blocks to the Cambridge Hospital for druggies. I walked into the lou and the toilet looked like Helter Skelter.

I noticed that there were cameras everywhere. Could I get arrested?

I took a shower and feel great now though....thanks for asking.

tits.

This was Gary Hart stupid.

The Cracker Emcee Refulgent said...

The lack of public restrooms in Boston always pissed me off, too. Thank God for the North End Branch Library.

Gahrie said...

I can't believe I'm doing this.....

my 16 year old prostate

OK..Are you 16? if so, much of what you have written in the past could be labeled child porn.

If you are an adult,....how is your prostate only 16? Are you suggesting they are doing prostate transplants ?

Franklin: "Also, you can't find his party affiliation anywhere..."

Yes, he's a Democrat from Indianapolis.

From NYPost...

This time she’s exposed the kinky fetishes of a Democratic state legislator in the Midwest who responded as “Bitch Boy” when she advertised for a submissive she could “financially dominate.”

Leathers, who lives in Evansville, Ind., said Bitch Boy was careful to never give her his name — he sent money to her through a prepaid PayPal card — but didn’t realize his name was on the shoes and lingerie he sent her through Amazon.

“I’m a little speechless,” Leathers told me. “I Googled him and found out he’s a lawmaker. Apparently only politicians can pick up on my pheromones.”
[...]
Leathers, who describes herself as “about as liberal as you can get,” said, “I’m really sad. I was really hoping it was a Republican.”

Titus said...

OMG Gahrie you made me laugh.

No I didn't have surgery on my prostrate so it was like a 16 year olds.

My doctor when he finger me tells me I have the prostrate like a 16 year old.

I am proud of my prostrate.

n.n said...

It's obvious that he sincerely believes in an open relationship. His wife, however, may believe otherwise. He should seek sanctuary in the nearest Planet Fitness.

Big Mike said...

Republican women are hotter than Democrat women, so Republican men are less likely to get involved with porn stars.

Anonymous said...

Findom?

Wow, I've been in the wrong line of business all these years.

To all the Althouse lurkers and commentators, if you want me to financially dominate you, please just ask. I'll take care of all your needs! Hell, I can spend your money very quickly and my wife and kids will really appreciate it.

Big Mike said...

Sydney exposed politician Anthony Weiner

I was under the impression Anthony Weiner exposed himself. (Likewise Justin Moed.)

Big Mike said...

@EMD,@Drill SGT, the Democrats are apparently serious about nominating Hillary Clinton. How stupid can you get?

Drago said...

You can tell how upset madisonfella gets when you don't mention him/her.

This news makes me feel safer about Republican senators announcing to Iran's hard-liners their intention of scuppering any deal to impede nuclear weaponization efforts and open their facilities to inspection.

Todd Roberson said...

I've lived in Indianapolis for a dozen years and have literally never heard of this guy. State legislators in Indiana are - with rare exceptions - non-entities. So what we have here is two anonymous single adults agreeing to a consensual financial arrangement. I'm not impressed or interested in any way; I can't imagine this has any effect on Mr. Moed's ability to do his job (whatever that is).

And ... Those are fakest looking boobs I think I've ever seen. They actually look sore.

Rhythm and Balls: "This news makes me feel safer about Republican senators announcing to Iran's hard-liners their intention of scuppering any deal to impede nuclear weaponization efforts and open their facilities to inspection"

LOL

They did no such thing.

But actually talking about what they did do would sort of undermine your talking point so it's understandable why you avoided it.

Drago said...

But since you brought it up R&B, perhaps you'd like to spend a moment or 2 dealing with Ted Kennedy's outreach to the Soviet leaders in 1983 soliciting cooperation to help undermine Reagan in the upcoming 1984 election.

Nah.

Why do that?

Michael K said...

" Is nothing private with her?"

How much experience dod you have with women ?

I have found women to be more blab-focused than even men about sex.

I can remembered walking into an ICU one evening and hearing about the cunnilingus skills of various male anesthesiologists.

Michael K said...

"I have the prostrate like a 16 year old."

Which position does he have you assume for the finger ?

Prostrate ?

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Because no one cares and it has nothing to do with anything. But numerous are the long forgotten subjects which Dragola must tabulate in order to help fuel his raging need for incessant political masturbation.

Drago said...

R&B's: "But numerous are the long forgotten subjects ...."

LOL

Dude, the '80's are, like, so loooong ago.

Who can even remember back that far?

I mean, can't we all just talk about something current and relevant, like how Mitt Romney behaved in High School?

And What Scott Walker was like in High School?

'cuz "relevant".

Drago said...

It was clearly very important to R&B's that the Republican simple and straightforward recitation of US law to the Iranian leaders be mentioned in a thread about an Indiana Dem lawmaker being forced to apologize over sexting.

Thanks for keepin' it real R&B, lest we get off track.

ken in tx said...

I only vote for the Stupid Party if there is a real chance that the Crazy Evil Party Will Win.

William said...

This man clearly gets off on humiliation, the more public the better. Ms. Leathers has just given him the thrill of a lifetime, and he didn't have to pay a cent. Who's the bitch boy now, Leathers? He set her up to play into his elaborate game of masochism.

David said...

The stupid party? I had always thought that was the Republicans, and if I am either one, I would have to confess to being a Republican. I think the Democrats are The Manipulative Party, but they seem to do stupid pretty well too.

themightypuck said...

This is major lede burying. Who cares about some here today gone tomorrow politician. Financial Domination is a thing? Why not buy an Apple Watch or subscribe to a Financial Services newsletter. For some reason there is no societal shame in those perversions.

Jason said...

Heh. Betcha anesthesiologists have no trouble getting women to sleep with them.

Johanna Lapp said...

If only we could find dominant women (and men) who could make NOT spending money an orgasm-inspiring humiliation, we'd have a solution to the whole national debt/deficit problem here.

NY Post , last week:
"Leathers, who describes herself as “about as liberal as you can get,” said, “I’m really sad. I was really hoping it was a Republican.”

Todd Roberson said...

I've been to Evansville Indiana on numerous occasions. Nice town with a cool riverfront on the Ohio River.

Ms. Leathers might be the only woman there with a full set of teeth.
