Embattled Congressman Anthony Weiner's Wife Is Pregnant

Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin
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?
