VIDEO: Anthony Weiner Resigns; Wife Huma Abedin Is Nowhere To Be Found

Submitted by on June 16, 2011 – 1:58 pm4 Comments

It’s 1:59 pm and I’m sitting in front of the flat-screen TV in my office, eagerly awaiting the commencement of Congressman Anthony Weiner‘s latest—and most likely, final—press conference from the Council Center in Queen. At 2:00 pm Weiner was expected to offer his resignation but it’s now 2:12 and I can’t help but wonder if this politician is still stalling. The disgraced congressman has been at the center of a controversy involving the distribution of lewd photos of himself via his Twitter account while carrying on inappropriate Internet relationships with at least six women.

Congressman Weiner finally graced us with his presence at 2:21PM and offered what is probably the most cocky resignation speech I have ever seen and heard. He tried to make himself sound just like the common, everyday man by mentioning his mother was a school teacher and how his father attended law school courtesy of the GI Bill. But in the end, Weiner’s arrogance prevails and his words of resignation are met with cheers from the crowd, a mix of reporters and constituents. One heckler in the packed room yelled “Bye bye pervert!” No one even tried to stop him. Noticeably absent  from this side show is Weiner’s wife of almost a year, Huma Abedin. Huma has yet to speak to the press, but I’m sure it won’t be long before Oprah and Katie Couric come calling (if they haven’t already). Watch the speech that brings Weinergate to its anticipated conclusion and decide for yourself.
