Ladies Have Weiner’s Back

A group of N.Y.C. women gather in support of the former congressman.

Apparently, Women for Weiner just didn’t have the right ring to it. Nonetheless, Anthony Weiner is getting help from a group of women hoping to boost his mayoral bid in a campaign dubbed Women for Anthony. The New York City campaign, which is led by his wife, former Clinton aide Huma Abedin, is raising money for the former congressman in his run for Big Apple mayor. Weiner, according to CNN, is attempting to come back to politics after the fallout from his sexting scandal on Twitter. The committee will hold a cocktail reception June 27 and will include top names such as Abedin and Reem Acra.
