Who is Huma Abedin?

In the annals of political wives standing by their men, Huma Abedin speaking out in support of her husband Anthony Weiner, was unprecedented.

"Anthony has made some horrible mistakes," Abedin says in the above video, "...both before he resigned from congress and after, but I strongly believe that's between us and our marriage."

In her carefully chosen words, Huma Abedin telegraphed so much, CNN's Dana Bash reports.

Admitting her husband continued sexting with other women at least a year after publicly humiliating her doing the same thing, while she was pregnant. Yet telling New Yorkers she forgave him, so they should too.

"I love him , I have forgiven him, I believe in him, and as we've said from the beginning, we are moving forward," she says.
