Buzzfeed claims to have identified the woman behind the most recent Anthony Weiner sexting scandal. The woman sending and receiving sexually explicit texts and photos from “Carlos Danger” is (according to Buzzfeed) “Sydney Elaine” or “Sydney Leathers” -- a 20-something Indiana woman who, according to her since-removed blog, is involved in progressive politics and worked as a field organizer for Obama for America. In 2011, she posted on her Facebook page that Weiner’s political record meant he could “continue sending dick pics every single day for the rest of his life.” In her statement to the Dirty, where the original images were posted, she said, “I don’t want the attention or I wouldn’t have kept my anonymity.” Wanted or not, here it comes.
