You've got to hand it to Anthony Weiner and Human Abedin; they seem to have a real knack for getting other people to pay for their lavish lifestyle. Not only do they live in a $3.3 million Manhattan apartment owned by a Hillary supporter, they appear to have had their lavish wedding (estimated cost: a quarter million bucks!) paid for somebody else. And because Weiner failed to disclose this gift, he may face criminal sanctions. Charles C. Johnson of the Daily Caller reports:
Anthony Weiner may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose his lavish six-figure wedding in his financial disclosure forms, says a government accountability group.
Ethics watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center examined the federal Financial Disclosure Reports for both Weiner and long-suffering wife Huma Abedin for 2010, the year of their wedding.
The cost for the ceremony was at least $100,000 but probably ran closer to $250,000 including all accommodations, clothing and extras. Neither Weiner nor Abedin had the resources to pay for the ultra-expensive wedding, yet neither recorded gifts on their Financial Disclosure Reports for that year.
Keep in mind that at the time, Weiner served in Congress, and Huma was a top aide to the Secretary of State - both positions involving sensitive information and potential influence. Undisclosed gifts to people in such positions raise the specter of potential bribery in any circumstances.
There is potential trouble ahead:
Even though there is an exemption for gifts from personal friends, the Ethics in Government Act requires written permission from the House Ethics Committee for any Congressman getting gifts worth more than $250. Weiner had no such written permission.

Didn’t Slick marry them?
I’m guessing brotherhood
Whomever it was should get their money back.
You can bet THEY didn’t pay for their own wedding.
That is another ‘gimme’ from the US taxpayers... for sure
Long suffering Huma?
One might as well write Long suffering Hillary.
One mught as well write Long suffering Obama...
Neither has suffered a day in their life.
And how do they afford a multi million dollar apartment? I know it says they don’t own it, but presumeably they are paying rent??? If they aren’t paying fair market rent, isn’t that imputed income to them, or a gift from someone? Could the IRS look into it?
I had heard that Weiner was not a wealthy man. Yet he and Huma are living a lavish lifestyle. It’s good to follow the money. Who exactly is subsidizing them?
Who exactly would want to subsidize them? They’re not exactly getting value for their money....unless it’s Jay Leno and David Lettermann.
It involves democrats and Muslims.
I wonder whether they're even legally married.
The event was officiated by Bill Clinton, even though according to state law Clinton could not legally perform the marriage.
Of course, laws are for just the little pipples.
While they’re at it... can they find out how Chelsea Clinton paid for a 10 million dollar apartment?
It’s like that tune from the 60’s...”I’m in with the incrowd? or Mel Brooks line.”It’s great to be king” as he is standing next to a volulptuous female
The elite don’t live like we do yet they expect us to blindly follow them
Speaking of Chelsea, I always wonder why Chelsea Mezvinsky never goes by her married name, and is never seen in public with her husband? Based on casual observation of the media, you would swear her marriage never happened.
I think she works for the Clinton foundation now, and is paid God knows how much money, so she can afford a $10 million apartment. Bill Clinton raked in over $100 million in speaking fees after leaving the White House, so I bet he shares the wealth with Chelsea.
Maybe this [according to state law Clinton could not legally perform the marriage] will be Huma’s “out” .... she’s got to be like a rat, pacing the deck of a sinking ship, wondering if she’s close enough to shore to make it if she jumps.
Stinking islamist. One can only hope that mommy has taken her back to Egypt to commiserate with.
“WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT, DOES IT MAKE?”
Muslim Brotherhood money?
The wedding was probably the biggest satanic event in the US since the Clinton’s wedding. I can see Slick Willy saying “by the power invested in me by the prince of this world...”
