Back to his stunning turn of events in the race for one of the -- since most powerful political offices.
New York City -- -- candidate Anthony Weiner admitting he has not kept his nose clean to just sexting scandal forced -- -- congress two years ago.
Revealing he sent messages and photos to women over the Internet even well after he resigned.
Plus a bigger focus may become his wife -- last -- -- his biggest fund raiser and yesterday stood by her man despite his now repeated.
Our marriage like many others.
Has had its ups and downs.
It took a lot of work.
And a whole lot of therapy.
To get to a place like the present and it was not an easy choice.
But I made the decision.
That it was worth staying in -- -- That was a decision -- -- for me.
For our son.
And for them and I don't know how it worked out.
They didn't know that I wanted to give it -- try and anticipate from horrible mistakes.
Both before and aside from congress and after.
But I do very strongly believe that that is -- us and our our marriage.
We discussed all of us before he decided -- -- from here so really what I want to say is.
And love him.
I have forgiven him I believe in him and his we have said from the beginning.
We are moving forward.
Let's talk about it Monica Crowley is -- -- talk I talk show host here's in Paris in the Daily Beast columnist both are Fox News contributors -- Karen -- in his state psychotherapist and family therapist welcome to you all ladies Canadian Canada -- yeah all right so -- two sort of schools of thinking on this there's the Jenny Sanford my husband publicly humiliating the number of another -- I take my kids on out of there.
There's the Hillary Clinton in school were you forgive you work through what you save the marriage stability for your child.
Up Monica why do you think -- is choosing apparently the Clinton model.
Well I don't.
Really no I mean we do know that marriage is an all relationships can be very complicated and nobody is in that -- Abington marriage except for the two of them.
But we also know that combatant -- it is Hillary Clinton's closest.
Advisor and top -- it has been for many years -- I think maybe her natural tendency would be to go to the Hillary Clinton model.
I'll look I think it's very clear that -- -- Abington given her position with Hillary Clinton who is.
Running for president in two and -- sixteen that she has a lot of personal ambition of her own.
And so what may be taking place -- Shannon is a shared ambition on the part of both of them.
To achieve ever higher positions of power and using their marriage in order to do it again I don't know if there's any real love -- -- there may be their name not be baby be telling the truth I I have no idea.
But what does seem clear is that both of them are putting their shared ambition for power.
May be ahead of their marriage which may be their choice the problem here is that it's not just contained to their marriage it involves now the people of this city of New York.
Deeply involved in their personal psychodrama.
Every single day now from here on out and I think that's unfair to the city of New York given the magnitude of the problems that the city faces.
-- -- to bring you in here because immediately after her press conference there and and her remarks and her standing there with her husband support -- -- There -- a flood of tweets from other police on other networks saying look how brave she is it's amazing.
Look how strong -- is -- the is that the proper focus because there's a lot of backlash to that to people saying you know she was strong she would admit you know he's got problems and he's not probably the best guy for this city.
Well you know look I I think that I anger -- -- that it's true that what happened in terms of infidelity is between them.
Where I would probably differ is that I don't think it's between them that he has really been up.
Pathological liar about it -- when when you look at the People Magazine interview that they did with.
-- baby for example where you know everything's behind them and then it turns out actually he's still doing this.
That -- unfortunately brings it into the round the that the public route so.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Voters.
She is -- accounts a very accomplished very educated very sophisticated woman and her own right but if he is as -- and says.
It appears there's proof he's a pathological liar this activity taking place well after he was giving interviews and saying everything was okay.
Why does she stick around.
Like many women who stick around the vision of what the -- would leave this man -- me and -- And the light at the invasion themselves to have.
Is why they stay within division is about being a wife being a -- politically empower.
Perhaps that -- higher package together and women who are independents and in power but also want to be but I have a feeling relationship.
Yearn for and long for stability for their child friends.
Believe that their man whoever the man might be how shortcomings because most powerful women belief that powerful men.
Had some type of challenge because they are not her facts.
OK so there's been a lot of pushed back in the local media and national meeting not only to him but also to her asking questions.
One columnist wrote that she should play the role of honest like the realistic -- and no longer enabling wife.
Instead of standing by from -- and -- should stand up for New Yorkers and say I may be stuck with him but you all don't have to be content.
Monica yeah how how Alen man treats his wife is how -- -- will treat his life.
And that is something that should be considered.
You know when you're hiring a leader you -- -- look for.
In select obviously but you also want to look for stability judgment and honesty and -- for Anthony Weiner hasn't really shown a lot of us any of that so.
Who might bite I I agree with the general argument that she might say look I'm standing by my husband Anthony Weiner my husband.
But I'm not gonna stand by him or next to him is Anthony Weiner -- candidates.
And she had last to do that but I think you know it may be the decision will be made for them by public pressure -- kissing what do you think do you think.
My head stands to hurt herself -- all her own an agent and the respect that people have for her because they question her judgment for sticking around.
Well look I don't think that that's actually fair to question the judgment of a woman for staying in a marriage when they have especially when -- have a child you know I don't I don't think it reflects badly.
On her judgment I do think that she put her.
Her credibility on the line when she came out into the press conference and -- what I would say is that whether she wanted to be there are not.
A what does it say about a husband who -- his wife do -- it was extremely humiliating he's humiliated her over and over again.
You know it if she's willing to do it and that is her choice.
But but I would say that he you know he probably shouldn't have let her do that it's not.
You know the fact that she is to kind of keep cleaning up the -- that he created and and in the -- press conference remember he also referred to.
This thing that happens to lots more as if like it was a tornado or something you know it wasn't you know he -- it heated it to her.
That's -- -- you know interest thing.
How anxious I know what is being analytical insight because it's all about taking ownership of your own behavior not me now and hi I need to take ownership that's very dangerous and there are still questions about that -- how voters here in New York fail we -- -- you'll feel very much for sharing it got played -- and thank you I'm --
