A number of wives have gotten dragged into their husbands’ political careers and missteps. Many stand by their man.
Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner Abedin was an aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton when Clinton was secretary of state. On July 23, she stood alongside husband (and New York mayoral candidate) Anthony Weiner as he apologized for sexually explicit messages to a woman in 2012. Weiner resigned his position as congressman from New York in June 2011, after he was caught in a similar act — sending lewd photos to women he met online. Abedin, who has a son with Weiner, has said details of their marriage are private. Andrew Kelly/European Pressphoto Agency Buy Photo
