Disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner might be a philandering, teenage girl-sexting, sick pic-tweeting embarrassment, but if there’s one thing he apparently isn’t, it’s single. Estranged wife Huma Abedin has reportedly decided to renege on her public breakup with Weiner and newly devote herself to working out their bizarre relationship.
“Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony. He has been spending 80 to 90 percent of his time at the apartment they share,” an alleged insider source told the New York Post. “If there is a disagreement, he goes to his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn.”
Another source even went so far as to suggest that Abedin – an incredibly close confidant to the Clinton cabal and Hillary Clinton in particular – agreed to the breakup as a move that was “more for optics for the campaign and pressure from Hillary’s camp.”
Weiner emerged as a source of humiliation for the Clinton campaign, not to mention Abedin, when he was caught sending pics that featured a scantily-clad Weiner laying in bed next to his toddler son to a 40-something divorcee. Abedin announced her separation from him the next day.
While the story smacks of tabloid gossip, there’s certainly an interesting angle to consider. In September, authorities learned that Weiner had also sent nude pictures and explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl. Two months later, FBI Director James Comey announced that new emails related to the investigation of Clinton’s mishandling of classified data were found on a shared laptop that was scooped up during the investigation into Weiner’s perverse activities.
Could Weiner and Abedin simply be avoiding a divorce so that they cannot be compelled to testify against each other should the information on that laptop come back to haunt them? Lord knows that it’s hard to imagine that any woman would stay with a man whose sex-seeking pseudonym is Carlos Danger and who seems literally unable to remain faithful.
