The man who broke the most recent Anthony Weiner sexting scandal said that the embattled New York politician presented his marriage to young women as a sham and even planned to purchase a “secret bunker” in Chicago that could house real-life trysts.
“They talked to each other daily on the phone. They told each other they loved each other,” Nik Richie, the founder of the gossip website TheDirty.com, said Wednesday on HuffPost Live.
Weiner’s sexting partner, who began her virtual relationship with Weiner at age 22, felt that the marriage between Weiner and his wife Huma, a former Hillary Clinton aide, was “more of a staged marriage for political gain” and believed that her romance with Weiner would be actualized in a secret condo in Chicago.
“They were going to be able to act [their sex fantasies] out” in a condo in Chicago, which was going to be Weiner’s “secret bunker” for sex, according to Richie.
“She believed him. This girl was starstruck,” Richie said.
“He had a really strange shoe fetish,” Richie said. “The guy has serious, serious issues. There’s no way this is the only girl.”
And now for the "pull quote" of the article:
Richie indicated that Weiner’s marriage may, in fact, be a political facade.
The hell you say.....
Now, back to the founders:
"....But I go on this great republican principle, that the people will have virtue and intelligence to select men of virtue and wisdom. Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks--no form of government can render us secure...." - James Madison, Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 20, 1788
