Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York faces a congressional inquiry after admitting Monday to explicit exchanges with six women he met online over the past three years. The string of inappropriate communications included the close-up underwear photo that set off the scandal more than a week ago when, Weiner said, he attempted to send it to a female college student but accidentally posted it to his Twitter page.
One of the women who exchanged sexual photos and other online communications with Rep. Anthony Weiner told Fox News' Sean Hannity that she knew she wasn't the only women catching Weiner's attention.
"I just thought at the time that ... there's way more girls out there. This is not just me," Meagan Broussard said in an interview that will air on Hannity's 9 p.m. ET Tuesday show. "Like, this is something that's regular, he's done all the time. He's comfortable."
Weiner, D-N.Y., after claiming for more than a week that a hacker was behind the closeup underwear photo sent from his Twitter account to a Seattle college student, admitted Monday that he sent the photo of himself, as well as other photos to her and five other women over the past three years. He apologized and said he was "deeply ashamed," but he doesn't plan to resign over the scandal.
"Meagan Broussaurd was one of the women," Weiner admitted when asked by a reporter.
Broussard said in a first-person post Monday on BigGovernment.com that she "has nothing against" Weiner but wanted to tell her story "to protect myself and my family."
"I think he was intrigued by me because I am different than the people he normally meets," writes Meagan Broussard, who describes herself as a 26-year-old Army veteran, college student and single mother.
"Talking to him was sometimes a turn-off because he was so open and just so full of himself, as if he were looking, searching for something," she writes.
