Huma Speaks: ‘I Believe in Him’


Flanking her husband, Anthony Weiner, at a press conference in the wake of new revelations that he continued his sexually explicit exchanges with young women after his resignation from Congress in June 2011, Huma Abedin delivered an emotional statement to reporters. Her voice wavering at points, she said, “I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him and, as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward.” 

The adviser to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton acknowledged that her marriage to Weiner has “had its ups and its downs,” but said that, with a “whole lot of work and a whole lot of therapy,” the couple has made an effort to overcome their marital difficulties. Her husband, she said, made “horrible mistakes both before he resigned from Congress and after.”

Abedin said that she chose to remain in the marriage “for me, for our son, and for our family.”

The website The Dirty on Tuesday posted sexually-explicit exchanges and photographs provided by a source who claimed that she corresponded with Weiner until at least August 2012, over a year after he resigned from Congress. The source told the website that Weiner had offered to help her get a job and arranged to purchase a condominium for her in Chicago, where he planned to meet her for sexual encounters.

Abedin has maintained a low profile in public since Weiner left office, though she maintained her position as a senior adviser to Clinton, but has recently emerged on the campaign trail with Weiner. Today marked her first appearance at a press conference with her husband.

Good for her. She doesn't see her marriage as disposable.

Enough for the wife, or enough not to run?

For me, it's enough now.   I wouldn't vote for him.

For is wife, I guess it's not enough yet.   That's her decision.

You think women should stay with serial cheaters/liars or they are saying their marriage is disposable?   Is there any point that a woman can leave and still be "good."

Not snarky, just trying to understand.

Yeah, I think I would've lost my temper by now and been done. 

The thing is, when Weiner resigned he said he was done.  Then, he announces his mayoral candidacy and admits there's more out there since he's resigned from congress.  Why or how are we to believe him now?

Seriously, anyone who votes for this scumbag has some questionable standards. 

It is notable that she works for Hillary Clinton.  Maybe she's getting marital advice from her.  We all know Bill is a ladies' man.

Huma has her own problems.

She is the not so secret lover of the Hildabeast and the conduit between the Obama administration and the Muslim Brotherhood.

What her Weiner does is of little consequence in her life.

I don't care if she forgives him or wants to be married to him or not.

If I were a NYC voter, I would care that even after he had to resign in humiliation, was the butt of a million jokes, and almost lost his family in addition to losing his job, he continued with the exact same behavior that put him in such jeopardy in the first place.

I could never, ever vote for him.

Last night i said to DH, "Why doesn't she drop his loser ass?". He reminded me that she probably takes her marriage seriously.
