Woes Piling up for Weiner

The road to political redemption hasn't been easy for disgraced politician Anthony Weiner.

If it's not Weiner himself, it’s someone in his campaign who is in the papers.

“Anthony Weiner's spokeswoman is the one garnering headlines this time instead of her boss,” reports CNN’s Rosa Flores.

His communications director Barbara Morgan is now apologizing for an obscene rant against a former intern.

Morgan didn't like a column the college student wrote about the Weiner campaign, and had unleashed one profanity after the other in a “talking points memo”.

And just “last week, his campaign manager abruptly quit after new revelations that he sent sexual pictures and texts to women a year after resigning from congress for the same thing,” Flores reports.

Calls for Weiner to drop out continue but he is vowing to stay in the race.

Meanwhile, Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, has been “absent from the campaign trail since her unprecedented news conference asking New York voters to forgive her husband the way she has forgiven him.”

“A Weiner campaign official tells CNN that Huma is taking an extended vacation this month from her work for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
