    Hillary Clinton has a “secret deal” with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep her troublesome husband Anthony Weiner out of the spotlight, sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president. Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources.
  • Anthony Weiner Favorites “Ultimate Sext Machine” Tweet, Calls it an Accident

    06/16/2014 7:32:37 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 19 replies
    You’d think former Rep. Anthony Weiner would try to avoid anything with the word “sexting” like the plague. After all, it was a sexting scandal that pushed him out of office in 2011. But recently, Weiner found himself trying to explain why he would favorite a tweet that claimed “Tinder will now be the ultimate sext machine.” It was a tweet by former Slate staffer Matt Yglesias, who is now Vox’s executive editor, and included a link to a piece about a new photo feature in the dating app.

    If Hillary wins, would Huma Abedin, Hillary's long-time aide (and presently working at the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation) have access to the White House? It would seem so. Given that, would her husband - Anthony Weiner - at least have a modicum of access to the White House, too? Bill and Tony: the not-so-odd-couple? Scandals magnifique?

    You can draw the historical comparisons as easily as I can, so I won’t bore you with them. Simple question instead: Should we cut this guy some slack for slobbering this way knowing that he’s just trying to make amends for jeopardizing his wife’s career? Huma was, and probably still is, a lock for membership in the White House inner circle if Hillary wins in 2016. The only baggage that might get her booted is you-know-who’s habit of doing you-know-what. If, after two years of public humiliation, Weiner wants to make it up to her by keeping a straight face...

    Former Congressman Anthony Weiner posted a thank you message to supporters on Facebook this afternoon that leaves the door open–ever so slightly–to another comeback run. “What’s next? I’ll keep you posted on my plans. But I hope we keep the band together,” he wrote in the message to supporters posted on his Facebook page. “(Who knows, maybe I have a third book of ideas in me!)” he added. Mr. Weiner, who lost his race for mayor this summer following revelations that he’d continued sexting with women long after he resigned from Congress, has kept largely out of the spotlight since...

    US lawmakers slam Saudi for teaching 'hatred'Democratic legislators urge Saudi government to eliminate hateful teaching from classrooms. First Published 2009-06-04 WASHINGTON - US lawmakers on Wednesday called on the Saudi government to stop distributing children's religious textbooks they claimed incited hatred and intolerance toward Jews, women and homosexuals, although such alleged incitements are present in interpretations of Christianity and Judaism. The request by three Democratic legislators coincided with President Barack Obama's visit to Saudi Arabia and Egypt this week to shore up beleaguered US relations with Muslims worldwide.

    GQ has the depressing campaign post-mortem/autopsy with fallen angel Anthony Weiner ("The Year of Living Carlos Dangerously," heh), and it's what we've come to expect from a man who can talk forever and say almost nothing. Weiner, though — his candidacy and likely his political career dead and buried — did seem to let his guard down a bit when discussing his relationship. It gets dark. Asked if he and Huma will stay together, Weiner responded: “One thing I’m grateful for is that now I’m under no obligation to answer anything like this,” he said. “But we’ve had a very...

    As of right now, Bill de Blasio is the man to beat in the race to be the next mayor of New York City. The latest polls put him at 43%, which is enough to avoid a run-off in the Democratic primary, and it is widely believed that whoever wins the Democratic primary will sail into office. For the most part, sitting mayor, Michael Bloomberg, has stayed out of the race, but in an extensive interview with New York Magazine the term-limited Independent ripped de Blasio's campaign as "class-warfare and racist":

    “Class-warfare and racist,” Bloomberg said. “I mean he’s making an appeal using his family to gain support. I think it’s pretty obvious to anyone watching what he’s been doing.” “I do not think he himself is racist,” Bloomberg said of de Blasio. “It’s comparable to me pointing out I’m Jewish in attracting the Jewish vote. You tailor messages to your audiences and address issues you think your audience cares about….Tearing people apart with this ‘two cities’ thing doesn’t make any sense to me.”

    Former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-N.Y.) friends believe that, while his campaign for mayor may have become a joke, it will set him up for a future political comeback. New York voters puzzle over why Weiner stays in the race despite constant ridicule. The city’s tabloids pump out streams of headlines punning on his name while late-night comics have made him a national punch line. Instead of dropping out, Weiner has embraced the media maelstrom in a calculated gamble that voters would respect his toughness and dedication to their issues. A new documentary by Stateless Media captures Weiner’s unorthodox campaign strategy,...

    Anthony Weiner was a promising Democratic congressman from New York’s 9th District which is located entirely within Brooklyn. First elected in 1999, Weiner easily won re-elections with no less than 59% of the vote. In 2005, he ran for Mayor of New York City and lost, but still remained a very popular congressman. In 2009, Weiner, a Jew, got engaged to Huma Abedin, a Muslim and aide to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. They married in 2010 and now have a son named Jordan Zain Weiner. Last year, Weiner was caught sexting messages and nude images of himself, forcing...

Weiner’s spokeswoman says the car he was riding in was involved in a chain-reaction crash Saturday morning on the FDR Drive, which runs along the borough’s east side. It wasn’t immediately clear where Weiner was headed or if he was on official business. A Fire Department of New York spokeswoman says no one was hurt in the crash. She says it happened near East 96th Street.

    The most interesting question surrounding the campaigns of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer is not whether they can win. Instead, it is whether their candidacies signal a shift in the values and priorities of voters when it comes to political sex scandals. The main difference between past and current political sex scandals is not the frequency with which they occur, but rather the time it takes to recover from them. In the past, once a politician’s sex scandal was revealed, it often took him (it’s almost always him) many years to regain credibility with the public, if he regained it...

    Soon after the 10th anniversary of the foundation bearing his name, Bill Clinton met with a small group of aides and two lawyers from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett. Two weeks of interviews with Clinton Foundation executives and former employees had led the lawyers to some unsettling conclusions. The review echoed criticism of Mr. Clinton’s early years in the White House: For all of its successes, the Clinton Foundation had become a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and threatened by conflicts of interest. It ran multimillion-dollar deficits for several years, despite vast...

    In a jolt to the Democratic campaign for mayor, a new poll suggests that Bill de Blasio, the most liberal of the leading candidates, has vaulted into first place among likely voters. With one month to go until the Sept. 10 primary, Mr. de Blasio has now passed Christine C. Quinn, the City Council speaker, who had led in most polls for months, although her lead had already narrowed. Until a month or so ago, Mr. de Blasio had been mired in fourth place, about 10 points behind Ms. Quinn. He was then overtaken by former Representative Anthony D. Weiner,...

Weiner received an average of just $1,897 a day in donations since the new sexting scandal erupted July 23, campaign finance records released Friday show. That’s a trickle of the $16,434 he received each day, on average, in the 50 days after launching his run for mayor on May 22. The records also show that Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, collected no money on his behalf since the new sexting allegations emerged, after she collected nearly $150,000 in the first 50...

    My unsolicited advice to Anthony Weiner is to drop out of the race for mayor of New York City. But since you insist on staying, hold a press conference: My fellow New Yorkers, The New York Times, among others, tells me to quit the race. Here's my proposition. I'll resign when the Times poses this question. In the upcoming NBC-produced miniseries called "Hillary," who will play Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey? What, confused expressions? Interesting how the Weiner-get-out crowd forgets that "everybody lies about sex" -- except when it comes to politicians whose last name is not Clinton. Digital First...

    When Michele Bachmann picked on Huma Abedin a year ago — claiming she had some convoluted connection to the Muslim Brotherhood — there was a rush to defend the longtime Hillary Clinton aide. The Minnesota congresswoman quickly got a scolding from House Speaker John Boehner, Sen. John McCain, House Intelligence Committee chair Mile Rogers. But now that her husband, Anthony Weiner, is running for New York City mayor, the attacks on Abedin aren't so ridiculous, and Abedin herself is not quite so untouchable.

    Top Anthony Weiner aide Barbara Morgan apologized yesterday after calling a former campaign intern a “bitch” and “slutbag.” She thought the interview was off the record. Politicker reported: Anthony Weiner’s spokeswoman, Barbara Morgan, issued an apology tonight after a profanity-laced interview with Talking Points Memo, in which she described a former campaign intern as a fame hungry “bitch” and “slutbag” who “sucked” at her job. Ms. Morgan said that she believed the conversation, in which she also threatened to sue the young woman, was off the record.

    Q. So what kind of summer have you been having? A. Wild. To some degree it's been exactly what I expected. To some degree, it's been the most surreal experience of my life. The great unknown when I got into the race was whether I'd ever get the chance to talk to the citizens about the issues. I knew what the guys who write the wood (front page headlines) would want to talk about. What the late night comics would want to talk about. And I launched this campaign on a gamble that I'd get to talk to the citizens...

    This year's bad news for MSNBC has only gotten worse. The "Lean Forward" network has struggled in the ratings since the Boston Marathon bombings exposed the network's glaring weakness when it comes to news gathering. MSNBC had hoped to turn that around by going all-in on with the Zimmerman, but it didn't. Compared to last year in July, MSNBC was down -12% in total viewers and -4% in the 25-54 demo. "Morning Joe" lost -4% of its viewers, -8% in the 25 to 54 demo. Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, and Lawrence O'Donnell all took huge hits over last year. Hayes...

    Wannabe Mayor Weiner is too sex obsessed to be mayor, according to his latest virtual gal pal. In a raunchy tell-all interview with Howard Stern, Anthony Weiner’s former virtual gal pal Sydney Leathers says the peter-tweeting poll used to call her up to five times a day – and almost every day – to have phone sex. And that still wasn’t enough! “He could have 12 girls talking to him, beating off 15 times a day and that wouldn’t be enough,” Leathers said. “You would think his d–k would hurt by the end of it.” Leathers questioned if Weiner’s obsession...

    …the way much of it has now turned on Weiner? That’s the question asked by a commenter at this post about The New Yorker’s new cover mocking Weiner. My answer, in a nutshell, is no. After all, there is no real cost to turning on Weiner. The election is not a national event. No one seemed to like Weiner all that much to begin with; perhaps the only people getting thrills up the leg about him might have been a few of his sext partners. Weiner’s misbehavior was sexual and simple to conceptualize, and most especially it was not political...
