Former NY congressman Anthony Weiner admits he is emotionally wired to cheat while his long-suffering wife, Huma Abedin, travels the country as Hillary Clinton's personal aide.
Weiner, 51, was recently Catfished by a man posing as a female student named "Nikki" on Twitter.com.
The man tricked Weiner into sending him his phone number to arrange a hookup. Weiner was on the west coast to appear on Bill Maher’s “Real Time” show.
In a previous statement to makers of a documentary, Weiner said that politicians “are probably wired in some way that needs attention.”
“I have a very thick skin,” Weiner told the Times. “Without going down a rabbit hole here, you could argue that some of my emotional wiring wasn’t working terribly well. That is how I can survive having 40 cameras outside my house.”
He is, of course, referring to the time in 2011 when news crews camped outside his house after he was caught sexting pics of his penis to a woman.
He resigned from public office after that scandal. Wiener was later caught sexting his penis to a teenager on Twitter.com.
Despite the scandals, Abedin and Weiner had a son together. Presumably Weiner babysits their son while Abedin travels the country with Clinton, 69.
Abedin once advised a staffer to monitor Clinton's phone calls because she's often confused.
