Wow! Anthony Weiner is having a really, really bad week. On the day he surrendered to the feds, his wife, Huma Abedin, also filed for divorce.
FOX News has the timeline of events that led to the meltdown of this guy’s life:
Huma Abedin is seen in the Brooklyn borough of New York during the reopening of investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in October 2016. (Copyright 2016 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.)
Weiner and Abedin, who met in 2001, got married in New York. Former President Bill Clinton officiated the ceremony.
The first photo of the scandal: a picture of Weiner in his boxer brief with a bulging crotch was posted on his Twitter account with about 40,000 followers. Weiner first claimed his Twitter was hacked.
Abedin was secretly pregnant with their son at the time.
Weiner held a tearful news conference on June 6, fessing up to the tweet.
After being out of the public’s eye for nearly two years, Weiner announced he is running for mayor of New York City.
A website published screenshots of alleged conversations that contained explicit photos between Weiner and another woman that previously happened.
And then Weiner lost his mayoral primary, a documentary about his escapades opened in theaters, another photo was released of Wiener in a compromising position while his young son was in the room, the FBI opened an investigation after a 15 year old girl came forward with “sexts,” and the rest is history.
The Washington Post reports on the first time Huma left Weiner. In fact she took off her wedding ring in August of 2016.
But with the couple’s six-year marriage was punctuated every few years by a sex scandal involving Weiner, some in Abedin’s inner circle insist this separation was actually a long time coming…
One interesting thought in the whole divorce scenario is that married people don’t have to testify against each other. Maybe Weiner will roll over on Huma’s mis-forwarded emails to his computer. Well, everyone needs hope, anyway.
