Vixen Vent: Leave Huma Abedin Alone!
To support a man whose junk has seen more promo than Oscar Mayer in the past two years inevitably comes with judgment. Granted, we have no idea what happened between them behind closed doors, though if one were to venture a guess given Weiner’s sideline “campaign” and his reasons for sending the nudes include a “rough patch” in their marriage, not much. But to sum up the response from most of Twitter’s female population to Huma’s decision to stay in the marriage, Liz Peek of Fox News says it best: “He’s clearly a sick individual, and her support will allow him to carry on in a make-believe world where sending pictures of one’s genitals to strangers is okay.”

She also has a knack for keeping her mouth shut but still revealing enough to shush the curious
“Quite simply, I love my husband, I love my city, and I believe in what he wants to do for the people of New York,” she writes in her exclusive editorial for the timely September issue of Harper’s Bazaar “And in the end, that’s why Anthony decided to run for mayor. People have said many things about my husband—some nice, some not so nice. And that will surely continue. Launching this campaign was not an easy decision for our family to make. Putting yourself out there comes with a cost.” If you were expecting a post-scandal tell-all, check Mrs. Clinton’s autobio for that.
