This Weiner Story gets weirder and weirder. On the same day that the most explicit of Congressman Anthony Weiner’s pictures was released to the internet by Greg Hughes (Opie of Opie and Anthony) after he stole a screen shot from Andrew Brietbart’s phone, the NY Times posts an item informing the world that Mrs Weiner, Huma Abedin is expecting the couples first child.
Representative Anthony D. Weiner and Huma Abedin are about to make news of a different kind: they are expecting their first child.
Ms. Abedin, 35, is in the early stages of pregnancy, according to three people with knowledge of the situation.
The pregnancy, which the couple has disclosed to close friends and family, adds a new dimension to questions about the future of their marriage.
Mr. Weiner, 46, who has admitted to engaging in salacious online conversations with at least six women over the last few years, has declared that he and his wife have no intention of splitting up, even though some of the exchanges occurred during their marriage.
“We will weather this,” Mr. Weiner said on Monday, during his emotional news conference. “I love her very much, and she loves me.”
But Ms. Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton, has remained silent about the topic as she keeps up a hectic schedule at the State Department.
Ms. Abedin returned to work this week and departed on Wednesday for a trip to Northern Africa with Ms. Clinton.
It will be interesting to see if this chills the movement to oust the NY Congressman, after all no expecting father has ever been thrown out of Congress. More to come.
