Anthony Weiner admitted to conducting inappropriate online relationships with six women, and now we know who the fifth one is. But Traci Nobles, unlike Lisa Weiss, Ginger Lee, and Meagan Broussard, did not want to come forward. Her roommate emailed the Las Vegas Sun a screenshot from Noble’s Facebook account, showing private conversations where Weiner and Nobles refer to each other as “sugar” and “sexy” and appear to arrange some sort of meeting, though it’s not clear whether that was to be online or in person.
Gennette Cordova, the first woman to be revealed, also emerged through no choice of her own. Nobles, 34, of Georgia, has posted suggestive public messages about Weiner in the past, including urging him to conduct official business while naked and requesting to sit in his lap. Even so, she doesn’t want to speak publicly now: “I really regret that this was sent to you,” she tells the Sun, but her roommate “thought someone should know.” Click to read Cordova's new interview with the New York Times.
