Meet Megan Broussard, the 26-year-old Texas woman who New York Rep. Anthony Weiner admittedly carried on a month-long, sexually-fueled online dialogue with.
On Tuesday, she broke her silence to ABC News, revealing more about her interactions with the congressman everyone's talking about.
It all began April 20, Broussard said, when she commented "hottt" on a video of a speech Weiner posted on his Facebook page. She said he sent her a friend request immediately and the pair struck up a regular chat.
"He said, 'I'm an open book, maybe too open,'” Broussard said.
"I thought for sure, 'Why would someone in that position be doing this?'" Broussard said, telling ABC's Chris Cuomo that she asked him to send a picture holding a sign that said "me" to verify his identity, which he did within minutes.
The two flirted online, Broussard said, but "it was noting like a relationship."
Broussard said that Weiner, on May 18, sent her a picture of a man’s erection, adding she thought it "was risky -- real risky.
"He would attempt to talk sex all the time," Broussard said, adding that she was "iffy" about engaging the wiry politician in hot-and-bothered banter.
Broussard said her reasons for going public with her experience with Weiner are not politically motivated, and that she doesn't "think he's a bad guy.
"I think he has issues," she said, "just like everybody else."
