If we’re reading this right, Huma was upset with him because he flushed his career over a sexting scandal. So her reasonably being miffed at what a creepy asshole her husband was and probably letting him know about it regularly, well, that drove him into his online dreamworld with Heather Sexypants, or whatever the Obama bimbo is named.
Serial sexter Anthony Weiner begged supporters to hang with him, telling them today “a rough time” in his marriage prompted him to keep sending sexually explicit words and pictures to women he’s never met.
In a letter released this afternoon, Weiner apologized but also seemed to shift blame for his pervy behavior to his marriage to former State Department aide Human Abedin.
Sure this happens a lot in most marriages, because, as Huma insists, they’re a normal couple. And often after the wife bails the lowlife husband out a second time he repays that support by tossing her under the bus in his sly way.
“Sending these embarrassing messages to women online, whom I never met, was a personal failing that was hurtful to my wife and a part of my life that Huma and I have put behind us,” he wrote.
“These things I did, as you have read in the papers, didn’t happen once. It was a terrible mistake that I unfortunately returned to during a rough time in our marriage. After a lot of reflection, some professional help, and a general reorientation of my life, Huma has given me a second chance. I will never stop being grateful for that.”
In addition to being grateful he should also go away. But no, “powerful voices” are conspiring to derail our working class hero.
“Now, with 47 days left until the primary, some powerful voices are making it clear that they still don’t want me to run,” Weiner said in his letter. “Yesterday’s news has given them fresh fodder.”
Powerful voices, aka everyone with a sense of decency.
