June 13, 2011--
Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner is following a new political-scandal strategy code-named "Weiner Gets Out In Front" despite vehement objections from his wife, Huma Abadin, currently an assistant to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as objections from Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. In the meantime, Hillary Clinton has been counseling Huma on how to deal with a sex scandal created by a witless husband, and likewise, Bill Clinton has been counseling (many say "warning") Weiner on how to deal with a wife embarrassed by her husband's "high functioning" peccadilloes. Other reports indicate that it's not simply hot air that Weiner is considering resigning but the timing is the most important factor-- indeed, one of his staunch supporters said it's vital to avoid any premature withdrawal of Weiner. This anonymous source insisted that Weiner will resist "premature withdrawal."
It's now been learned that what was erroneously reported as a telephone call from Weiner to Bill Clinton to "apologize" for the scandal was instead a call by Weiner seeking advice from the former President on how to respond to the political scandal. Reliable sources say that Bill Clinton had already told confidents (who then suggested to Weiner that he call Clinton) that the best strategy would be that "Weiner gets out in front" even though it would be the "hard way" for Weiner to try to keep his seat (as well as other anatomical features). Thus, when Weiner called Bill Clinton, the former President told him he needed to "lead from the front." Reliable sources also indicated that Bill Clinton told Weiner to "look on the bright side" because there may be new opportunities that will arise as a result of this scandal. Not being one to let grass grow under his feet, Weiner has already made arrangements with a sportswear company to capitalize on Weiner's now world-wide fame:
For readers interested in catching up on related news reports about this scandal, we have included immediately below our highly informative report released yesterday. We are still seeking more details about the prospective plans by Weiner and his wife. There are reports they will go on a "second-honeymoon reconciliation" trip, but the destination has not yet been announced. In the meantime, here's yesterday's update on the Weiner-Huma relationship:
In a sudden about-face, Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz support Weiner treatment to avoid exposing Weiner to expulsion, and Weiner's wife, Huma Abadin will play a hand in the Weiner treatment. As shown below, Weiner poses with his admiring wife just before they begin a second honeymoon at the Lorena Bobbit Treatment Center.
In a hastily-called press conference just before Weiner was scheduled to go in for treatment, Huma said, "Before you know it, the old Weiner will be out." Her husband added, "I'm less concerned about the old Weiner coming out than whether the treatment may have a debilitating effect on my speech-making voice." Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz also held a press conference. Asked by a reporter whether their support for the plan for Weiner's treatment was inconsistent with their prior positions, Wasserman-Schultz said she envisioned the plan as simply an extension of her wanting to offer Weiner support by supporting Weiner treatment.
"Indeed," said, Nancy Pelosi, "the real goal of going in for treatment is to eliminate the need for support, and we are confident that when the old Weiner is out, the need for support will have been eliminated, and he will be able to bring a higher tone to speaking and tweeting in Washington." Weiner's wife agreed that rather than being long, the treatment would be a quick in and out.
