Former Congressman and current New York City Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma held
the most a cringe worthy press conference ever yesterday. The conference was held because an online gossip site published texts that Weiner sent to at least one woman last summer.
Last summer? Yes, last summer after he had already resigned his Congressional seat during his initial sexting scandal. After that scandal his accomplished wife, Huma, who was an top aid to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, stood by her husband.
And, she stood by him again yesterday as Weiner fessed up to another case of sexting. Obviously Weiner has a problem. Honestly I didn’t think the first incident was a huge deal. Lots of married people push boundaries. But, now, after having lost his career once and more importantly putting his wife through so much, he did it again!
Also, this time Anthony Weiner used a special online moniker for his sexts. The name he used was, wait for it, “Carlos Danger“.
Yikes. Just when you think you know somebody. And, really, I guess that’s the point of this post. We really don’t know public figures. We know what they want us to know and what we find out on our own. Otherwise these people are total strangers.
And as for Weiner’s wife Huma. I felt bad for her after the first incident, not anymore. Fool the wife once shame on her husband, fool her twice, shame on her.
Do you think Weiner’s run for NYC Mayor is over now?
Or will New Yorkers overlook his actions again?
Why do you think Huma has been and is standing by Weiner?
