Things got real cheeky between NYC mayor hopeful Anthony Weiner and his latest sexting partner -- TMZ has obtained a pic she sent to him on Facebook ... showing off her ass in a thong ... and that's just the beginning.
23-year-old Sydney Elaine Leathers tells TMZ she sent the photo to Weiner in July 2012, modeling a cheeky-cut lace thong (good choice) ... in what appears to be her bathroom (bad choice).
Weiner admitted yesterday he sexted long after he resigned from Congress in 2011, but finally nipped his sexting problem in the bud last summer ... around when Leathers sent the thong photo.
Leathers says ... Weiner was very persistent in his naughty picture requests, asking her to send all sorts of naked photos ... more than 30 in total. But we're told Weiner also has a foot fetish, and regularly asked for pics of Leathers' feet in heels. Of course, this was all allegedly in exchange for pictures of his own naked ... weiner.
And the relationship wasn't just online either, we're told Weiner regularly spoke to Leathers on the phone -- in fact, Weiner was adamant about speaking to her because he enjoyed telling her about his sex dreams ... most of which involved her. Shower sex was allegedly one of his favorite topics ... his wife, Huma, was not.
As we reported, Weiner now claims the entire sexting debacle "is entirely behind me," and that he's moving full steam ahead with his mayoral campaign. Good luck with that.

Some Sexting Happened
AFTER My Resignation

NYC mayoral candidate and self-admitted Internet perv Anthony Weiner says he continued to engage in SEXTING other dirty sex stuff AFTER he resigned from office.
Weiner said the most recent sexting incident took place last summer.
Weiner says the sexting "is entirely behind me now" ... and he will not drop out of the race for NYC mayor.
Weiner's wife Huma Abedin -- who looked SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE during the event -- also addressed the media ... and said she decided to stay married to Weiner because she felt it was the best decision for the family.
"I have forgiven him, I believe in him and as I have said from the beginning we are moving forward," Huma said.
During the media conference, a creepy guy behind a cubicle kept popping up behind Weiner like a whac-a-mole. At one point, the guy waved ... it was pretty hilarious.
Weiner initially called for the news conference to address the latest allegations -- first reported by TheDirty.com-- involving lewd photos and chat messages he sent to a 22-year-old girl on the Internet in 2012.
Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011.
Weiner has already released a statement admitting the chats were real ... but didn't say whether the Internet affair actually occurred in the wake of his infamous 2011 sexting scandal, as the 22-year-old woman is claiming.
Weiner said, “I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have."
