Weiner scandal puts wife Huma Abedin under harsh light

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner is back in the spotlight for sending lewd images to women. He resigned from Congress in 2011 for the same behavior. The scandal also puts his wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, on the frontlines for judgment. Commentators from the public and in the media are deriding her for staying with her husband and supporting his run for office. Is it fair to blame her for sticking around? Does his behavior make him an unsuitable candidate? Political strategist Rebecca Sive and journalist Carol Felsenthal break it down. Photo: Flickr/zennie62
