Sexting pal Lisa Weiss apologizes to Anthony Weiner on Facebook wall

A family photo Anthony Weiner posted on his Facebook page, showing him with his wife, Huma Abedina and their son Jordan.

The first of Anthony Weiner’s sordid online sex friends to come forward about the scandal has apologized to the former Congressman and his wife on his Facebook page.

Lisa Weiss went public in June 2011, revealing an extensive online exchange of sexual messages with Weiner beginning in August 2010, just a month after he married his wife Huma Abedin. Weiss and Weiner exchanged more than 220 racy texts and Facebook messages, including one conversation made public where they discussed the “bulge” in his pants.

The revelation led to Weiner’s swift political downfall, as several other women stepped forward to say that they, too, were regular sexting pals. Abedin, who was pregnant when the scandal broke, stayed by Weiner’s side, but the couple stepped out of the public spotlight where they proceeded to live a quiet life below the radar, and welcome their son months later.

On a family photo that Weiner posted in September 2012 on his Facebook page, showing him with his wife and young son, Weiss left a rather interesting comment that seems to be the talk of the town today:

So great to see you back! Your wife and son are beautiful! Please let me apologize again for any pain I caused your (sic) or the beautiful Huma… it was unintentional… I still think you are our liberal hero and we need you back in politics!!



The most questionable element to it all, though, is why Weiner and Weiss are still Facebook friends.

Weiner also recently made a quiet comeback to Twitter, lighting up his dormant account with a plea to support the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
