I think party insiders were really pushing to get him out of public view once the x-rated pic leaked out to stop further fallout. But then Weiner leaked out the info last night that his wife was pregnant as a last-ditch attempt to save his job and to try to garner sympathy over it (pretty sad that his wife’s pregnancy is little more than a bargaining chip for him- but that’s who he is).
I’m guessing the source quoted in this article probably hadn’t yet heard the news about the pregnancy.
