CHICAGO (CBS) — A state lawmaker in Indiana has been accused of engaging in a sexually explicit text relationship with Sydney Leathers, the woman at the center of a sex scandal involving ex New York congressman Anthony Weiner.

According to a report from WISH-TV, the lawmaker has been identified as State Rep. Justin Moed, D-Indianapolis.

Moed has not commented on the reports.

Last week, the New York Post reported that Leathers had been exchanging racy texts with a “Democratic state legislator in the Midwest.”

“I’m a little speechless,” Leathers, a resident of southern Indiana, told the Post. “I Googled him and found out he’s a lawmaker. Apparently only politicians can pick up on my pheromones.”

A website called,, has published naked pictures of a man it identifies as Moed.

The site also has photographs of a note, apparently as part of a gift to Leathers, that says, “A gift from Justin Moed.”
