A Turn Of The Screw

this damn story is NEVER going to go away. . .


Weiner’s Wife Is Pregnant

Their marriage has become the subject of intense speculation and scrutiny amid an embarrassing online sex scandal.

Now, Representative Anthony D. Weiner and Huma Abedin are about to make news of a different kind: they are expecting their first child.

Ms. Abedin, 35, is in the early stages of pregnancy, according to three people with knowledge of the situation.

The pregnancy, which the couple has disclosed to close friends and family, adds a new dimension to questions about the future of their marriage.

Mr. Weiner, 46, has admitted to engaging in salacious online conversations with at least six women over the last few years, including an incident last month in which he sent a photograph of himself in underwear to a college student in Washington state. He apologized to his wife and declared that they have no intention of splitting up.

“We will weather this,” Mr. Weiner said on Monday, during his emotional news conference. “I love her very much, and she loves me.”

But Ms. Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton, has remained silent about the topic as she keeps up a hectic schedule at the State Department.

Ms. Abedin returned to work this week and departed on Wednesday for a trip to Northern Africa with Ms. Clinton.

A State Department spokesman declined to comment Wednesday afternoon.

If there is a scrap of decency in Weiner, he'll resign, change his name and career to give this child a chance at a normal life.
As to Huma and her pregnancy:
The first trimester can be hell under the best of circumstances. Fluctuating hormones, nausea, frequent bladder interruptions, and that nasty creep of body insecurity as the womb expands for the first time . . .it can all take it's toll. I cannot fathom the extent of how deeply Weiner's indiscretions and breach of trust will impact this first pregnancy. Damn him.

Unfortunately, my compassion for Huma's emotional suffering is somewhat tempered by her lack of judgement. Given her choice of spouse, social & political ties - despite her muslim background and having been raised in Saudi Arabia, she chose this lech to father her child.

I don't trust her. And Weiner better be watching his back . . .if she has any male siblings, cousins or uncles with honor issues . . .look out.

The old saying "There's no fury as that of a woman scorned" should send shivers up the backs of those who permitted her access to the highest offices of political power.

Huma is pregnant? How did that happen? Hilary squeezed the turkey baster?
