Clintons Won’t Back Weiner for Mayor

Sources say one sex scandal is enough for them.

Just because Hillary Clinton stood by her man doesn’t mean she has to stand behind her chief of staff's. The former secretary of State may be a mentor to Huma Abedin, but she and husband Bill have no intention of supporting Huma’s husband, Anthony Weiner’s, mayoral aspirations. In fact, according to one Democratic source, “The Clintons wish Weiner would just disappear. Every time he pops up, it’s a reminder of Bill’s scandal with Monica Lewinsky, and it isn’t helpful to Hillary’s hopes for 2016.” The Clintons have been pretty tight-lipped about whether Hillary will actually make another run for the White House, but if that is what she has in mind, sources say the last thing she needs is to be linked to another political sex scandal.
