Anthony Weiners soon-to-be ex wants a judge to consider their 5-year-old sons welfare when sentencing her pervy hubby for sexting a 15-year-old girl, she wrote in a letter filed late Wednesday in Manhattan Federal Court.
“Anthony and I have a wonderful son,” Huma Abedin, a 41-year-old top aide to Hillary Clinton, wrote in the letter, which is largely redacted.
“It is for (redacted) that I write this letter,” she said, presumably referring to their son, Jordon.
Whatever else Anthony has done, he loves (redacted), Abedin wrote. As would any parent, if there has to be any negative impact on (redacted) I would like it to be a (sic) small as possible.
Weiner, who admitted on May 19 to transmitting obscene material to a minor, is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 25.
His lawyers on Wednesday asked Manhattan Federal Judge Denise Cote to sentence him to probation, claiming he has an illness but “is no predator.”
As part of their push for probation, Weiner’s lawyers submitted numerous letters from the disgraced ex pol’s remaining supporters, claiming he has a good character despite his creepy cyber-cheating.
Abedin who filed for divorce the same day Weiner pleaded guilty penned a letter to Cote.
“This is not a letter I ever imagined I would write, but, with Anthony, I have repeatedly found myself in circumstances I never imagined. I am devastated by Anthony’s actions, and I understand he must face their consequences,” Abedin wrote.
She made clear she was writing as a mother.
I will do anything I think will help (redacted) be as safe, happy, healthy, and complete as possible, she wrote, asking the court to take this “in consideration as it weighs all it has to in considering Anthony’s sentence.”
In Weiner’s letter to Cote, he said his remorse for endangering the girl’s well-being is “profound.”
“My continued acting out over years crushed the aspirations of my wife and ruined our marriage,” he wrote.
“I am so deeply sorry for the harm I have done to her, and I live with the sorrow that I will never be able to fix that.”
He said the one perfect thing in my life my son will forever have to answer questions about the public and private failings of his father.
Weiner, an ex-congressman who had City Hall ambitions, said his regret keeps me awake at night and fills me with fear from the moment I awaken.
There are daily, even hourly, reminders of my failings. I can’t imagine ever not feeling regret.
