Page 3 Profile: Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton adviser

What’s her story?

Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, she moved to Saudi Arabia when she was two. Coming back to the States for university, she worked her way up from White House intern to one of Hillary Clinton’s top advisers. Super-intelligent and driven, she speaks English, Urdu, and Arabic, and is so close to Mrs Clinton, she’s been dubbed her “body woman”. She married Anthony Weiner in 2010 – a ceremony over which Bill Clinton presided.

He seems familiar

He should. Attentive readers will remember that Weiner lost his job as a Congressman in 2011 after he sent nude pictures of himself to women via Twitter – or “sexting” as it became known.

And Ms Abedin forgave him?

Yes. Weiner said: “She was very unhappy, she was very disappointed, and she told me as much. And she also told me that she loved me and we’re going to  get through this.”

So how did he enjoy second chance saloon?

Not much apparently. The gossip website The Dirty has published fresh allegations of similar behaviour, with pictures of the politician’s nether regions. Up until then, he was frontrunner for New York mayor, so this has all caused a stir.

How did he get caught this time? 

It’s not clear. He seems to have taken precautions, like adopting the alias ‘Carlos Danger’. The New York Times suggested he “take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor”.

Cue the Tammy Wynette again?

Well she’s standing by him. At a press conference on Tuesday, she said: “I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him, and as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward.” As Tammy sang: “You’ll have bad times/And he’ll have good times/Doin’ things that you don’t understand…”
