According to the one-day poll, conducted Wednesday, just 33 percent of voters in New York’s Ninth Congressional District think Weiner should resign from the House, while 56 percent do not think he should resign. – Poll: Weiner’s Constituents Don’t Think He Should Resign
Rep. Anthony Weiner looked almost relaxed as he was interviewed by the New York Post, or maybe the best word is relieved. He was carrying a lot of guilt and shame, with the worst finally happening to him. His secret is out and everyone knows. There’s nowhere to go but up from here.
His wife Huma Abedin is reportedly standing behind him and urging him to fight for his job and to renew his life, which was the whole ballgame. She didn’t have to come out on camera to prove it, though fogies and establishment types demanded it.
The New York Post got the scoop:
“I’m going to get back to work as best I can,” he said.
“I betrayed a lot of people and I know it and I’m trying to get back to work now and try to make amends to my constituents, and of course to my family of course,” he added. “I’m going to go back to my community office and try to get some work done.”
Weiner reiterated what he told the media earlier this week.
“As I said when I spoke at the press conference on Monday that I exchanged inappropriate things with people and, I think that I’ve now got to deal with those consequences,” he added.
“I was completely honest on Monday after I hadn’t been for a while,” Weiner said outside his lawyer’s office in Midtown.
Who knows, maybe talking with the Big Dawg helped and he might have gotten some sage advice about fighting through this hell.
The worst is over (no matter what happens in the ethics investigation).
