During the year 2013, Hillary Clinton after leaving the State Department returned to New York. There was a planning of quiet year by her, basking in sky-high approval ratings and enjoying a respite from the media spotlight as the groundwork for a second presidential run was already laid by Hilary Clinton.
Anthony D. Weiner, the husband of Mrs. Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, was going for mayor of New York when there was in headlines that he was exchanging lewd messages with women online after which he lost his congressional seat. In this one, the embarrassing Spanish-inspired moniker was used by him.
The tawdry story line and the nearness of Ms. Abedin’ and Mrs. Clinton made the news go far beyond the city, resulting in dragging the name of Mrs. Clinton into messy headlines about penis pictures, Mr. Weiner’s descriptions of his sexual appetites and his online paramour named Sydney Leathers.
As Mrs. Clinton seems on the cusp of winning the White House, Mr. Weiner, who was explained by himself as “a perpetually horny middle-aged man,” has dragged her into another mess. Investigators investing into his sexual messaging with an underage girl stumbled uponthousands of emails potentially pertinent to the F.B.I. inquiry into Mrs. Clinton’s private email server.
