Anthony Weiner may be ready to put his salacious past behind him, but many of the women associated with his Twitter misdeeds are still fuming about being, uh, thrust into the spotlight.

“I cannot tell you the devastation,” Lisa Weiss, a 42-year-old blackjack dealer who exchanged messages with Weiner, told the Times. “I obsess about it,” she said, “every day.”

In the two years since the scandal broke, the five women found to have exchanged sexually explicit messages with Weiner are handling the fallout in their own ways. Weiss, despite her mental stress, has appeared on Inside Edition, and even posted on the disgraced congressman's Facebook page, apologizing for "any pain I caused your [sic] or the beautiful Huma."

Others have adopted similarly bizarre methods of coping. Gennette Cordova, a 21-year-old college student who in 2011 published an account of her interaction with Weiner in the Daily News, opted to move from Seattle to New York City, of all places, to attempt to "leave a place where she had become known for her ties to the unfolding drama." According to the paper, Cordova was somehow surprised when a reporter showed up at her office.

Ginger Lee, a former adult film star, would really prefer that Weiner not run for mayor at all. “Every new headline and news story about him reminds reporters and bloggers that we exist, and the cycle starts all over,” she said in a statement released by her lawyer. She does, however, boast on her personal website that she's "a fucking survivor. No matter what, I am a survivor." So that's good.

The story in the Times, though hardly a bombshell, has apparently been in the works for ages, as the headline was accidentally posted on the site on June 11.

Margaret Sullivan, the Times‘ public editor, wrote that the accidental post was the result of a miscommunication between editors.

“Such are the hazards of digital misdirection, as Mr. Weiner found out," she said. "It couldn’t have happened to a more appropriate story.”
