Anthony Weiner is one lucky dog.
The former Democratic congressman from New York, who recently completed a stint in prison for sexting with a 15-year-old girl, is getting another chance with his wifey Huma Abedin, a longtime aide of Hillary Clinton.
The Daily Mail first reported the news Monday that Weiner — a “disgraced politician” — was spotted moving back into the couple’s abode over the weekend.
One astonishing detail among many: the already scrawny Weiner was spotted in what looked to be a white Puma tank top, blue tie-dyed shorts and garish red and yellow sneakers. How Abedin allowed that is beyond imagination. Shouldn’t his attire have been one of the many pre-conditions of his moving back in? (RELATED: Weiner’s Ex-Sextress Says Prison Won’t Help)
In April, Weiner was shopping a book deal, but interest was flaccid. Except for New York Mag’s Olivia Nuzzi, a former Weiner intern, who said that if Weiner could honestly scrutinize himself, she’d read it. But others said they weren’t interested in reading about a narcissistic creepy serial sexter. (RELATED: Interest In Weiner Book Is Soft)
Back in May, Weiner left a halfway house in the Bronx where the registered Level 1 sex offender bided his time as a segue between prison and the real life. The twice-New York City mayoral failure was sentenced to 21 months for his crime. Authorities let him out of the jug early for good behavior.

The nation collectively sighed in relief in 2017 when Abedin filed for divorce on the very day that Weiner entered a “guilty” plea of sexting with the 15-year-old girl. In January 2019, she abandoned that plan. The couple wed in 2010. Former President Bill Clinton officiated the ceremony, which should have given the pair a clue that this might not work out too well.
In late June, Weiner was spotted lunching with a young, dark-haired woman on Wall Street. The New York tabloid that reported the news referred to him as a “sext-ual” predator. The story said the pair had to “lean in close” to chat, which seems somewhat justified in a packed Manhattan cafe.
A couple that pushes past a husband incessantly sexting other women is not the greatest dynamic for a makeup or a premonition of good things to come.
Let’s cover our eyes.
I mean, er, let’s see what happens.
