An extraordinary thing fell into the laps of filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg as they documented Anthony Weiner’s 2013 bid for New York City mayor: Weiner’s dick.

Husband Of the Year Anthony Weiner was spotted today with his wife Huma Abedin. They couldn't hold hands because he was carrying a L'Occitane bag, like any disgraced non-mayor would do. He spent his totally calm day taking his son to Duane Reade and the playground.
