    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not know that her longtime aide Huma Abedin planned to speak publicly in support of her husband, New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, CNN reported Thursday. Abedin appeared alongside Weiner at a hastily arranged press conference earlier this week, after it was revealed her husband had continued to send sexually explicit pictures and texts to other women, even after resigning from Congress over similar indiscretions. But according to CNN, Abedin did not consult with Clinton — who herself has grappled with a politician husband publicly straying — before stepping in front of...

    Publicly, Huma Abedin said she loves and forgives her husband, Anthony Weiner, despite a second round of sexting revelations. But a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE she thought of leaving him last fall when Abedin, 36, learned that Weiner, 48, was once again sending sexually explicit messages and photos of himself to other women. "He came clean to her," says the source, who is a family member. When he did, Abedin was distraught. "She was seriously considering what to do, thinking: 'Maybe, I can't do this.' There was a possibility of leaving on the table," the source says....

    Complete Headline: Huma's mom arrives to support her scandal hit daughter as Weiner's sexting partner calls their marriage a 'business relationship' After Sydney Leathers' accusations of Anthony Weiner's 'business relationship' marriage, wife Huma Abedin's mom has showed up at the reeling political wife's New York City home to support her daughter. Leathers, the 23-year-old who revealed the latest string of explicit sex messages and naked pictures from Anthony Weiner, gave her first interview with CBS's Inside Edition and cried for Abedin 'for the pain she probably feels.' Now, as the other woman rubs salt in Abedin's wounds by telling the...
  • Rush Limbaugh Says Weiner’s Wife Huma Is a ‘Doormat’ Because She Is Muslim (Audio)

    Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the Anthony Weiner cyber-sex controversy on Thursday, calling Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin powerless in the relationship because she is a Muslim. “Huma is a Muslim,” Limbaugh said. “In that regard, Weiner ought to be able to get away with anything. Muslim women don’t have any power, right? Muslim women are beheaded, stoned, whatever if they drive, have affairs. In certain countries, Muslim women, if they’re raped, are killed – it’s their fault.” The day before on his radio show Limbaugh called Huma a “doormat” and criticized her esteem for Hillary Clinton....

    Author James Michener famously said of Hawaii’s nineteenth century New England missionaries that they went to the islands to do good and ended up doing very, very well. Washington commentator Mark Shields has likened those missionaries to many people who come to Washington—all starry-eyed with idealism upon their arrival but later fixated on the ongoing Beltway stampede for a share of the largess bestowed upon the city’s insiders as they combine government service with often-grubby private pursuits. Which calls to mind Huma Abedin, wife of the disgraced former congressman, Anthony Weiner, and a darling of former secretary of state Hillary...

    Anthony Weiner’s brother Jason intervened in an effort to silence Sydney Leathers which left her ‘scared and shaken,’ MailOnline can reveal. Weiner’s brother acted as his ‘wingman’ in a damage control exercise that backfired spectacularly sparking the scandal now engulfing the mayoral candidate. This new revelation comes on the same day that the current New York City mayoral candidate has admitted that he had virtual relationships with three women since he resigned from Congress in 2011, and up to seven others before that. Ms Leathers, who reportedly wants to sell her story for $100,000, gave an interview to Inside Edition...

    Three of New York's flagship newspapers called on Anthony Weiner to drop out of the New York City mayoral race — and the editor of a nightlife blog promised more revelations about Weiner's lewd online activity. The editorial boards of both the Daily News and the Wall Street Journal joined the New York Times editorial board in calling for Weiner to pull out of the race, the day after he admitted to new lewd activity online that went past his 2011 resignation from Congress. Meanwhile, Nik Richie — the editor of The Dirty, the blog that first posted exchanges a...

    Allahpundit gave a great recap to one of the stranger political events of all time, the attempt by Anthony Weiner to argue for yet another opportunity for redemption. When he entered the mayoral race, Weiner said that he’d learned his lesson after the scandal broke in 2011 and was ready to return, but revelations in the past 24 hours show that he continued his extramarital Internet trolling well after the birth of his child last year. Nevertheless, his wife Huma Abedin stood by his side and declared that she supported Weiner and that the latest reports were old news and...

    No one seems to really know who he is for certain, but the “cubicle guy” who photobombed Anthony Weiner’s uncomfortable press conference on Tuesday is a “viral hit,” according to Politico. The man, who was seen peeking over a cubicle wall as Weiner answered questions about his more recent sexting scandals, has been identified as possibly being WOR NYC reporter Jeff McKinney. Websites and news organizations quickly took notice of the man and the images started going viral.

    Money can't buy the kind of political boost Huma Abedin is receiving. Like her mentor Hillary Clinton, the stand-by-your-man strategy will be her gateway to widespread popularity and respect. Don't feel sorry for the Democrats over losing a former rising star politician like Anthony Weiner, whose future is so hopeless that even the New York Times says it's time to go. They have gained an even more promising candidate for high office. Huma Abedin is better-looking, better spoken, and more appealing than her role model. Yesterday's performance ("whole lotta therapy") was superb, establishing Ms. Abedin as dignified, strong, and starting...

    When Anthony Weiner was driven from the halls of Congress because of his penchant for tweeting photos of his nether regions to women who were not his wife, it was pretty clear that his reputation would accompany his political career down the toilet. What was less clear was that he might inadvertently flush his wife’s reputation as well. Yet I couldn’t help but think that that is precisely what is happening as I watched their incredibly uncomfortable press conference on Tuesday. The scene was so familiar it was almost cliché. The wronged wife standing next to her wrongdoing hubby in...
