Mommy's Home: If Huma Ain't Happy, Ain't NOBODY Happy

No, you CAN'T reverse the charges.
Huma Abedin, grown-up wife of disgraced frat-boy Anthony Weiner, returned home today from an official trip to Ethiopia with her boss, Secretary of State Clinton. In the week she's been gone, Congressman Weiner has continued to publicly air his dirty laundry, with more bizarre revelations only yesterday.

Weiner refused to resign when Nancy Pelosi said he should; and he refused to resign when the President of the United States said he should. But now mommy's home and, guess what? The Washington Post reports:
Rep. Anthony Weiner has decided to resign, following revelations that he exchanged sexually explicit messages and photographs of himself with women he met online, a senior Democratic aide confirmed Thursday morning.

Weiner (D-N.Y.) informed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, of his decision Wednesday night, the aide said.

His office said he would hold a news conference 2 p.m. at a senior citizens center in Brooklyn.

Weiner’s decision comes weeks after he posted a suggestive picture of himself — intended as a private message to a college student in Washington state — to his public Twitter account.

In the days that followed, Weiner tried several ways to defuse the growing scandal. He at first said the photo was posted by a “hacker” and then called it a “prank.” Then he gave an all-out confession, admitting he had taken and sent the photo in a rambling news conference in New York.

Then he disappeared and was said to be seeking help for an unspecified disorder at an unidentified treatment center. Washington gossip indicated that he was waiting for his wife, Huma Abedin, an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, to return from a trip to Africa.

As days passed, more photos emerged — and more women came forward to say they had corresponded with Weiner. Last weekend, many top Democrats began a concerted effort to push him to resign. President Obama said he would have bowed out if he were in the same situation as Weiner.
