Although one could make the argument this is her way of punishing him considering the amount of abuse he’s taking from his own party.
(NY Post) — Publicly humiliated Huma Abedin won’t ditch her lecherous husband, and is actually working overtime to help salvage his gravely wounded political career, a close friend told The Post.
She even hunkered down with disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner in a New York hotel Monday night — an incredible show of support just hours after a blubbering Weiner confessed to three years of sleazy online flings.
“She loves her husband very much. She is committed to her husband and her marriage,” the close friend said.
She’s adamant that her husband does not resign, and is optimistic that he can continue his career as an elected official.
“I think people have weathered worse,” said the source.
“They are still talking all the time about what to do [to survive the scandal],” the source said, adding that they plotted his political comeback while at the hotel.
Abedin has decided to handle the scandal in her own way, not following in the footsteps of women before her — like the wives of former Gov. Eliot Spitzer and onetime New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey. Those spouses stood by as their men publicly detailed their philandering ways.
Update: Scratch what I wrote above, these two are power-hungry animals.
Washington (CNN) — Rep. Anthony Weiner told a House Democratic colleague from New York Wednesday afternoon that he does not plan to resign. A Democratic source familiar with this conversation said Weiner told his colleague that his wife Huma Abedin wants him to stay in Congress, and cited polling data showing a majority of New York City voters want him to remain in office. The source described Weiner as “dug in.”
The source spoke on the condition that the name of the Democratic New York lawmaker not be made public because it was a private conversation with Weiner.
