'Women for Weiner' hosts event By: Maggie Haberman June 19, 2013 03:53 PM EDT

Meet the Women for Weiner.

The former congressman, who apologized for the lewd picture scandal that ended his House career before launching a bid last month for New York City mayor, is holding a fundraiser hosted by “Women for Anthony” next week at the Manhattan home of an education activist and philanthropist.

The host committee is led by his wife, Huma Abedin, and includes her sister, Heba; Rory Tahari, wife of designer Elie Tahari; and Cheryl Saban, the wife of California-based mega-donor Haim Saban, who funded a short film lauding Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department shortly before she left Foggy Bottom. POLITICO viewed a copy of the invitation, which asks people to come to cocktails with “our next mayor.”

(QUIZ: Do you know Anthony Weiner?)

The host list, featuring a number of high-powered women who were Clinton backers, makes clear what a number of media outlets have reported — that Abedin is a central figure in her husband’s campaign. Buzzfeed recently noted Abedin, using her network of contacts, has been working the phones to help raise money for him.

Weiner said over the weekend that he expected Abedin, who currently runs Hillary Clinton’s transition office, to join him on the campaign trail soon.

He already has $4 million in his war chest from his previous campaigns and has qualified for public matching funds.

Also on the list is philanthropist Elaine Schuster, who lives in Boston and was a Clinton supporter, and Kirkland & Ellis lawyer Binta Brown, who was also a Clinton backer. Abedin has worked for the Clintons for more than a decade.

Honestly, you can’t make this ?#$& up because sometimes the jokes just write themselves.

But don’t forget, these people take themselves & their worldview VERY seriously.

When one reflects upon the fact that this man shouldn’t be even a remotely viable candidate for any political office, I can’t laugh about it. Look at that list of names. Big money flowing in through Clinton front donors. Lots of juice behind them. Connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. Saudi, Pakistani, Egyptian, and Iranian. Couple that with the fact NYC voters define low information voters, and Weiner may well be the next mayor of NYC simply by having the MB “buy” the office for him. Next stop: Governor or U.S. Senate. Anybody still laughing?

Judging by their pictures, I would have to say that none of these women have never met Weiner nor would they like him/it very much if they ever did.

Good thing he's a Dem. He'd never get away with what he did if he was a Repub. The "news" media would never let anyone forget.

But now? The media silence is deafening.

The thing is all of those women are the ones the little wiener is hoping will jump on board his wiener-wagon. So the little wiener is going to be screwed no matter what he does.

And, the whole time he maintains his wienerness is his strongpoint and that he deserves to be viewed as a credible candidate.

Talk about clueless.
