Anthony Weiner’s sext buddy Sydney Leathers says that the former congressman and would-be mayor of New York contacted her “as recently as April 12,” contradicting Weiner’s account of the timeline.

Leathers made the allegation in a post she wrote on xoJane, in which she tells her “10 secrets for seducing a politician,” just “in case,” she writes, “anyone wants to be as stupid as I was.”

“Anthony says he hasn’t been cheating on Huma for six months,” she writes. “Wrong. He last contacted me as recently as April 12. Straight up lies.”

Leathers went public with the existence of her graphic conversations with Weiner last month. Since then, she has worked to keep herself, and her body, in the national spotlight, posing for a photo shoot in her bathing suit for the New York Post, and releasing a porno earlier this week.

Weiner resigned from congress in 2011 after similar sexting behavior was revealed. Before this second round of exposures, Weiner led the polls in the Democratic primary for mayor. He has since plummeted in the polls.
