The sordid story of Rep. Anthony D. Weiner (D-NY), who was caught this week sending sexually explicit photos of himself to a college student in Washington state, took on a new layer of complication Wednesday when The New York Times reported that his wife, Huma Abedin, is pregnant with the couple's first child. According to the Times:
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.
Does the revelation of Abedin's pregnancy change your opinion of Congressman Weiner's behavior?
