A politician with a sex scandal is hardly worth the batting of eyelashes these days. One with two sex scandals? Eh, it's been done before. But a politician who lets cameras keep filming him, his high-powered political wife and their baby son while the second wave of his scandal breaks—and all in the middle of a New York mayoral election? That's a guy you need to see.

How could she?
While people are speculating about what Huma Abedin was thinking when she decided to stand by her man in his latest humiliating sexting scandal, close friends and family members tell PEOPLE the answer is simple: her toddling, talking 19-month-old son, Jordan.
Confidants of Anthony Weiner's wife tell PEOPLE in this week's issue that Abedin was on the verge of leaving Weiner last fall, after he confessed in September he was sexting again.

If anyone's been following the sex scandals of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer, it's Julianna Margulies.
The Emmy-winning actress's CBS show The Good Wife "ripped its title from the headlines when Silda Spitzer was standing right behind her husband" during the prostitution scandal, Margulies told PEOPLE on Tuesday.
With her character "loosely based" on Silda and other political wives who have stood by their husbands, Margulies says, "The headlines are now imitating us because both of these politicians – Spitzer and Weiner – have gotten back into the game of politics. And now newspapers are saying, 'Huma, take some advice from Alicia Florrick. Go back to work, don't read the papers.' "

As anyone who isn't Nell knows, this week Prince William and Duchess Catherine welcomed their son, Prince George Alexander Louis, in an event that nearly took over the internet with second-by-second commentary on everything from Kate's hair (she looked like she just stepped out of a salon, not the delivery room) to the baby's Seinfeldian name (George Costanza, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus). But more happened this week than just the birth of a babe who may or may not celebrate Festivus. So read on for your Internet fix:

Publicly, Huma Abedin said she loves and forgives her husband, Anthony Weiner, despite a second round of sexting revelations.
But a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE she thought of leaving him last fall when Abedin, 36, learned that Weiner, 48, was once again sending sexually explicit messages and photos of himself to other women.
"He came clean to her," says the source, who is a family member.
When he did, Abedin was distraught. "She was seriously considering what to do, thinking: 'Maybe, I can't do this.' There was a possibility of leaving on the table," the source says.

When they invited PEOPLE into their Manhattan home last summer – their first interview since he resigned from Congress amid scandal – Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin (joined by baby son Jordan) were the picture of a family tested, but healed and happy again, with Anthony's sexting habit kicked.
Now, he tells a very different version of What I Did Last Summer, calling it "a rough time in our marriage." (Asked Wednesday at a campaign event whether he'd been dishonest, Weiner said, "Look, I was going through some things personally – family-wise – and trying to be honest about it, about where we were at the time. But this thing, you know, was still there.")
Here, PEOPLE offers previously unpublished and expansive excerpts from that 2012 interview to shed new light on what Weiner and Abedin are saying now.
