Anthony Weiner’s latest sexting scandal where he was caught sexting with a woman — in one picture with his toddler in the background — appears to be the last straw for his wife, Human Abedin.
Abedin is the Clintons’ long time aide. She is serving as the Vice Chair of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. There is no one who is at the Democratic nominee’s right hand more often than Human Abedin.
Abedin released a short statement:
“After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to ding what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy.”
Former representative Anthony Weiner (D-NY) suddenly burst into the news again today for a reason that has taken the country by surprise.
Weiner is reportedly caught in yet another sexting scandal.
According to the Huffington Post, Weiner, 51, allegedly sent lurid tweets and photos of his crotch to another woman, the New York Post reported. One of the raunchy selfies included his young son in the background.
The woman that was on the receiving end of Weiner’s message had been chatting with him since January of 2015. Screenshots of the conversation were sent to the Post and she agreed to speak with them so long as she remained anonymous.
Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 after his first sexting scandal where he allegedly accidentally tweeted an inappropriate photo instead of sending it. He attempted to revive his political career in 2013 by running for the New York City mayor, though he lost the election amidst another sexting scandal where he used the alias Carlos Danger.
He then left the public eye and claimed that “being a dad” was his job on the “Here’s The Thing With Alec Baldwin” podcast.
