Anthony Weiner's wife not having a great week

Despite her husband being the butt of late night jokes, and water-cooler ridicule, Huma Abedin is standing by Anthony Weiner, and he, by her. "I love her," Weiner said at a press conference Thursday. "She loves me. We have a son. Nothing else matters."

 But Abedin is facing her own troubles — less salacious than her husband's, but potentially more severe.

On June 13, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote her and Secretary of State John Kerry asking why Abedin, the deputy chief of staff at the State Department under former Secretary Hillary Clinton, was granted status as a "special government employee" after the birth of her son.
