It looks like Anthony Weiner will be losing more than his wife over his most recent sexting scandal. After his THIRD sexting scandals, it’s over finally between Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin, but she’s not the only one to declare his latest scandal was one too many.
Weiner, once a rising star in New York politics, has been a semi-regular contributor to multiple news outlets even after the 2013 sexting scandal that cratered his bid for mayor. After the New York Post revealed that Weiner had continued the extramarital sexting, at least one news outlet has cut off his contributor role.
Television channel NY1 said Weiner would not be reprising his contributor role on any of its shows. “Anthony Weiner is on indefinite leave from the station,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
The New York Daily News, where Weiner contributed occasional opinion columns since 2008 and became a columnist in 2014, said enough is enough. “[W]e won’t be running his columns in the future,” opinion editor Josh Greenman told The Daily Beast in an email.
Business Insider, where Weiner also contributes, said they had no formal relationship to dissolve, and didn’t address his future at the site. “We are sorry to hear about the dissolution of the Weiners’ marriage, and we wish them all the best,” Business Insider said in a statement. “We do not a have formal contributor relationship with Mr. Weiner, but we and our readers always enjoy his columns.”
