'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 Clintons 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 husbands 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 Clintons 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.

Nope. Too easy. Too dang easy, and I don’t want to get banned for eternity. BTT
Too bad Dean Martin’s not still around. They could do a “Weiner Roast!”
Cocktails with Weiner. Catchy.
Are they really supporters or are there some there just taking it all in?
Women for Weiner...?
This thread is nothing without pictures
Is Claire McCackle on the invite list ?
Chicks for a dick.
Well, some of them support wiener.
You own it, New York. You own it.
Well at least they are not talking about their “v’s” for a change!
I think I’d rather this thread remain without them.
At first I thought this article was a parody.
So I guess there won't be any lezbos there.
