Word has it that the pregnant wife of Rep. Anthony Weiner is feeling trapped in her marriage.
According to the The New York Post, the close-knit, devout muslim family of
35-year-old huma abedin is "furious" with their jewish son-on-law's lewd behavior online.
Hillary Clinton, since her days in the White House as First Lady. She's Secretary Clinton's closest aide, and is never seen far from her side.
President Clinton presided over the Weiner-Abedin wedding last July 10.
Weiner, who resigned Thursday, has been persona-non-grata on Capitol Hill. After saying repeatedly he would NOT resign, he was forced to give up his seat, in the wake of top Democrats -- from the President, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senator Majority Harry Reid on down -- led the charge for Weiner to go.
Conventional wisdom within The Beltway is that Weiner, who's considered something of a a hot dog and media hog with very few close relationships on The Hill, had little chance of surviving the scandal, because he had little or no support from his colleagues. That's a 180 from what happened to longtime Congressman Charles Rangel, who's beloved by his colleagues. Political experts say that's one of the key reasons why the Harlem legislator survived his ethics problems earlier this year.
After lying to the press and his colleagues for days, Weiner, 46, came clean finally, admitting he sent raunchy pictures his private parts and of himself in various states of dress and undress via Twitter to at least six young women, one of them as young as 17.
Weiner, a former City Councilman, represented New York's 9th Congressional District which covers parts of south Brooklyn, south and central Queens. This includes the neighborhoods of Forest Hills, Maspeth, Fresh Meadows, Glendale, Howard Beach, Kew Gardens, Kew Gardens Hills, Middle Village, Ozone Park, Rego Park, Rockaway Beach, and Woodhaven, and in Brooklyn: Gerritsen Beach, Marine Park, Midwood, Mill Basin, and Sheepshead Bay.
