They say never kick a man when he’s down. However, when the man is disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner and the reason why he’s down is that he engaged in online sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl, we say let it rip.
And that’s exactly what top Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin did Friday when she served Carlos Danger with divorce papers on the same day he pleaded guilty in a New York court to sexting with a minor.
According to the New York Post, Weiner was defending himself through sobs in a Manhattan courtroom Friday morning after his guilty plea.
“I have a sickness but I do not have an excuse,” Weiner told federal Judge Loretta Preska.
Well, duh. Weiner also said he “hit bottom” before checking into outpatient rehab last fall. Weiner’s bottom seems to have fortuitously coincided with a charge that could carry up to 10 years in jail for transferring obscene material to a minor. (However, prosecutors have recommended between 21 and 27 months. More’s the pity.)
“I knew that was morally wrong,” Weiner said.
In our experience, Huma Abedin hasn’t been a terribly great judge of what’s morally wrong; she’s come across as a kind of a Haldeman/Erlichmann synthesis for a 21st-century pantsuited Nixon, in my experience. However, even she knew it was time to call Weiner for what he was.
On the same day Weiner finally told the world what he had done was “morally wrong,” Huma filed for divorce in Manhattan Supreme Court under the case name “Anonymous v. Anonymous.”
Unlike “Kramer v. Kramer,” I think we can figure out how this one is going to end. After all, why would a court give custody of a 5-year-old son to a father who thinks he’s closer to his ideal dating age than the child’s mother is?
Now, I know we’re not kind to Huma in these august pages, and for good reason: She’s a remorseless functionary of the Clinton machine. That being said, nobody deserves a husband who courts 15-year-old girls online.
We congratulate Huma for coming to her senses and — at least in this case — wish her all the best in being free of one of the greatest reprobates in American political history.
