A Texas woman whom Rep. Anthony, D-NY Weiner has admitted exchanging photos with says a man identifying himself as the Congressman called her from a number link to his New York congressional office, as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi calls for an ethics investigation to see if government sources were used.
Megan Broussard, 26, says the call took place on the afternoon of May 18, in an interview with ABC News.
The day he called he just said, 'Who in the world would be acting like me?' laughing about it, Broussard, who is a single mother said.
After hanging up, Broussard said she called the number to see if it was Weiner. A receptionist at the congressman's office answered, she said. ABC news says Broussard provided the news organization with a record of the call.
At a press conference on Monday, Weiner admitted that Broussard was one of six women to whom he sent photos and online correspondence over the past three years.
Broussard said she received a photo of a man's crotch on May 18 in an e-mail from a man she believed was Weiner.
She said she had never met Weiner.
Of Weiner, she sai she doesn't think he's a bad guy.
I have my own life, my own things where I'm from and I just wanted to go ahead with them. I thought I could just be private about it, but there's no reason for me to hide, she said. I didn't do anything wrong. I don't know him. I'm just putting my story out there before anyone else tries to.
Andrew Breitbart, whose website BigGovernment.com first published the details of her story, shared here identity with ABC News.
After days of denials, Weiner on Monday admitted to sending a bulging underpants crotch photo to a Seattle woman and personal photos to six women in total, prompting House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, D-CA to call for an ethics investigation to determine if official resources were used.
I am deeply disappointed and saddened about this situation; for Anthony's wife, Huma, his family, his staff and his constituents, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in a released statement.I am calling for an Ethics Committee investigation to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred.
Weiner said he continuously lied about the tweet scandal over the past 10 days since the situation broke and did not want that and the other incidents to known.
I was embarrassed and I didn't want it to lead to more embarrassing lies, Weiner said, explaining why he had lied to his constituents and the press.
He also denied breaking the law or breaking any rules and said he would not resign.
