WGRZ Channel 2, Buffalo is reporting that Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-NY) wife is pregnant with the couple’s first child. The pregnancy is in the early stages, reports the New York Times.
If true, this adds another layer to the sex scandal surrounding Weiner. On Monday, Weiner admitted that he lied about his Twitter account being hacked, and that he did indeed tweet suggestive photos to a woman with whom he was carrying on an internet relationship.
Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife of 11 months, a top aide to Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, was not present at the news conference on Monday, and has not issued any statement regarding the scandal or her marriage.
Adding to the stress of the scandal, is a growing clamor from House members of Weiner’s own party that he should resign. But constituents in Weiner’s district in Brooklyn say they would vote for the Congressman, should he decide to remain in politics.
“It’s a shame because he’s a very effective politician,” says Howard Witz, a Brooklyn real estate broker. “Disappointed? Maybe. But does it make me quit on him? No it doesn’t. As long as he didn’t commit a crime.”
If Huma Abedin is pregnant, should the couple stay together and try to make their young marriage work? Do they owe it to their child to make every attempt at a successful marriage? Or has this sexting scandal pushed their marriage past the point of no return?
