Weiner Stands Firm With Huma at His Side – Will Stay in Mayoral Race (Video)
A new scandal involving raunchy online messages engulfed Anthony D. Weiner, imperiling an improbable political comeback that had catapulted him to the top of the New York City mayor’s race.
Mr. Weiner, who left Congress amid revelations that he had engaged in a pattern of reckless online conduct, acknowledged during a hastily arranged news conference that the behavior had continued even after his resignation.
Mr. Weiner stood side by side with his wife Huma Abedin, as the two spoke in unusual detail of how the scandal has affected their very public marriage.
“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out and today they have,” Weiner said. “I want to again say that I am very sorry to anyone who was on the receiving end of these messages and the disruption this has caused.”
Ms. Abedin, smiling nervously, took to the podium soon after her husband, and said, “I love him. I have forgiven him. And as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward.”
Huma joined him today and spoke out in support of her husband and mayoral candidate.
