Clinton Camp Angry at Rumours of Lesbian Affair with Aide
The First Post (UK) ^ | 10/26/2007 | Staff Writers

Posted on 11/26/2007 8:49:28 PM PST by ex-Texan

Hillary Clinton's campaign team are furious that an unsubstantiated rumour of a lesbian affair with her exotic aide de camp Huma Abedin, which has been doing the rounds of 'underground' blogs and websites in recent weeks, appears to have gone mainstream after reports in foreign papers addressed the subject of dirty tricks on the US presidential campaign trail.

The problem started with a report in the London Times on Thursday. 'Hillary Clinton has been accused of having an affair with Huma Abedin,' read the caption under a photograph of the two trouser-suited women (above left) striding across the tarmac to catch a plane. The next day, the Russian newspaper Pravda wrote a similar round-up which concluded: "Hillary and her aide, Huma Abedin, do live together at home and on the road, but the only way to nail Clinton would be to catch them together in a lesbian action."

The rumour of a lesbian love affair appears to have been been started in August 2007 by the New York freesheet, the Village Voice. Although neither the Times nor Pravda made any attempt to claim the story was true, some Americans have taken the reports in two of the world's most famous newspapers to heart. Not least Hillary's own team. "This does not even qualify as tabloid trash... it's ridiculous and reckless," a Clinton aide said at the weekend.

Abedin, who is the daughter of Indian and Pakistani parents and comes from Kalamazoo Michigan, has been an aide to Clinton for some years. The photograph in the Times was taken in 2000. She was recently photographed (above right) in Vogue's 'Age' issue, as an example of a glamorous woman in her 30s with good looks, insider influence and a fabulous address book. She chose two red dresses - by Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta - for her Vogue photoshoot.

Although the Times, owned by Rupert Murdoch, appears to have caused her some heartache, Hillary Clinton was diplomatic when asked an awkward question in Iowa at the weekend about Murdoch's growing influence in America. The arch-conservative media baron Rupert Murdoch, who already owns Fox News, the New York Post (and its gossip section Page Six, which notoriously went after Clinton's husband Bill during his presidency) and will soon own the Wall Street Journal.

Did Clinton think, the questioner wanted to know, Americans would "lose out democracy" if one person controlled their media? Clinton answered: "There have been a lot of media consolidations in the last several years, and it is quite troubling. It's bad for consumers because you limit choice, it¹s bad for citizens because it limits the diversity we have." But she also made it clear that she wasn't singling out "any company in particular" for condemnation. "I just want to see more competition, especially in the same markets."

What she didn't tell the questioner was that, the Times article notwithstanding, she and Murdoch have developed a close if curious relationship since she became junior senator for New York in 2001. Murdoch even held a fundraiser last year for Clinton's senate campaign and recently bankrolled former nemesis Bill Clinton's global warming initiative.

I saw a tabloid headline a few years ago alleging that Hillary is a lesbian. This is nothing new.

The word “never” is almost never accurate, but NEVER believe that democrat and especially Clinton hacks are actually “angry” over anything. The media love to report feigned liberal anger.

Wow, that's just a flat-out lie.

The Abedin family left Kalamazoo for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in 1977, when Huma was 2 years old, at the behest of Abdullah Omar Naseef, who is defendant #97 in the World Trade Center lawsuit.

To the best of our knowledge, Huma never returned to the United States until more than 15 years later, when she enrolled as an undergraduate at George Washington University.

It's flabbergasting how lazy these journalists are.

But this is front page news in England. The source is not a scandal sheet.

The primary source is a respected magazine in the tradition of the old Look! magazine or the Saturday Evening Post.

The First Post is a conservative magazine in the UK. They strongly supported Tony Blair and often have positive news reports about Bush.

The Village Voice ain't exactly a right-wing outfit. They can't pin this one on a VRWC. If the republicans were smart, they could get ahead on this issue: "We don't care about Hillary's sexual preference, we just disagree on....."

FWIW I was listening to Tammy Bruce’s show today and she brought up this story. Seems she has heard another name associated with ol’ Hill. Tammy travels in those circles, being very open about being a lesbian herself, and I would tend to believe that Huma may not be the only one. I do remember that Hillary had told her campaign staff that there was not another woman in the Senate she couldn’t lick.

It is not front page news per se. It was a story about rumors in SC. It listed this as one. It wasn’t news other than the fact that they were reporting on rumors making the rounds in SC. Comparing it to 2000 (McCain black baby), etc.

There have been a lot of media consolidations in the last several years, and it is quite troubling. It's bad for consumers because you limit choice, it¹s bad for citizens because it limits the diversity we have.>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Of course Hillary's diversity does not encompass any news service which promotes a conservbative view in its editorials. I mean most of the MSM drive by work is almost the exclusive purview of the liberal socialist press, LA Times, NY Times, Washington POst , ABC, CBS, and CNN. All of these are liberal promotors and spin artists. Fox News is the only one amopg them with a diverse view point to the others. Notice how Hillary does not include conservativism in her definition of diversity, but an evil to be rooted out, as is the conservative radio show , and the conservative blogosphere.

This proves that she would be a disaster as POTUS.

The other interesting thing is simply: " Methinks she doth protest too much." If the story was trash journalism, why is she so excercised about it, why doesn't she just say, "This kind of trash comes with any political campaign, comes with the territory?"

The tabloids have hit a nerve, and they will not now let go.

Perhaps they will get the goods on Hillery, photography is marvelously invasive these days, and Hillery has cast down the gauntlet.

No dear, they’re playing the most reliable Clinton defense, “It’s all about sex” remember? Just like Monica a decade ago these “Huma the Lesbian” rumours are doing a great job of distracting attention from “Huma the Saudi-raised Wahabist.”

It’s called misdirection.

I think you are right. They get angry, deny, then attack the messenger as a "right wing tool", then finally when the DNA appears on the dress, admit to what everybody already knew. Just admit it, Hillary! It will come out sooner or later, take your lumps now. BTW I think the republican candidates should get everything out there now, too. No more October surprises.

That photo makes Huma look like a black woman.

I can’t help thinking that this is a non-affair brought forward by the Clintons for political purposes. She knows she’s watched and that others are looking for newz.

We’re jumping to conclusions. Hillary’s platform should be the focus....forget this stuff. It makes her a victim.

Lesbian or not, Huma’s been Hillary’s batman for almost 12 years she undoubtedly know enough to put Hillary in the stocks. I said it before, if a tenth of these stories are true it would be a tossup who works for who but it may be safe to assume the Saudi princes own them both by now.
