When representative Anthony Weiner appeared before cameras to apologize for lying about sending lewd tweets, it looked like so many situations with past politicians.
This time, though, there was one thing missing. His wife wasn't standing by his side. Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, is a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Women living in D.C. wonder what really happened between the pair.
"I don't know her side," said married local woman Ci Ci Schultz. "Maybe she knew and said you're doing this on your own honey."
Weiner disclosed that he sent inappropriate pictures of himself via twitter and Facebook to six women. The question is: Is it cheating?
"It's sharing intimacy with someone else," said married local woman Christine Roberts.
