Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner is on the defensive again, one week before the state's democratic primary, as he's caught on tape arguing with a Jewish voter in Brooklyn, New York.
CNN's Rosa Flores reports.
It's no secret that while out on the campaign trail Weiner has been confronted by some nasty voters, but this time it is a personal attack against him and his wife Huma Abedin.
Saul Kessler is the other man in the spat who tells CNN he did say, "You're a real scumbag Anthony," and followed the comment with "married to an Arab."
Kessler says, "It's just a certain feeling I have as a Jew."
Weiner has said, "If you're gonna say vile things about me and my family you should expect that I'm gonna go back at you."
Weiner's wife Huma Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Her father was from Indian descent. Her mother is from Pakistan. Abedin is a practicing Muslim. She spent much of her childhood living in Saudi Arabia where her father was a professor.

What part of calling someone an "Arab" is a slur? I note that Ms. Abedin is not an "Arab" – couldn't Mr. Weiner just have pointed this out? I think the deli man meant to confront Weiner with the fact that he married a Muslim.
