Looks like top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin is giving her sext-addicted estranged husband and disgraced politician Anthony Weiner another shot.
In August, Abedin announced her split from Weiner after it was revealed that he was sexting another women while lying in bed next to their young son. Now the Hillary confidant is “working hard” to get her relationship back on track with Weiner, despite the numerous sexting scandals, one of which allegedly involved a 15-year-old girl.
“Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony,” a source close to the Abedins told The New York Post. “He has been spending 80 to 90 percent of his time at the [Irving Place apartment] they share . . . If there is a disagreement, he goes to his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn.”
The source added, “Both [his and her] families are hoping they will reconcile.”
Another source told the Post that the August split was “more for optics for the campaign and [under] pressure from Hillary’s camp.”
Weiner has has had a tough go at things in Washington. He shortly served as a Democratic congressional representative before accidentally tweeting out a photo of his penis instead of sending it via private message to a college girl. He had been married to Abedin for a year at the time of the tweet.
Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 over the incident, though his sexting persisted.
“In 2013, Weiner admitted that he had been sexting with 10 different women – three since he had resigned from Congress – under the cartoonish alias of ‘Carlos Danger.’ Weiner lost in a landslide in the mayoral primary to the eventual mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio,” reports Daily Wire’sAaron Bandler.
