Rep. Anthony Weiner represents my district in Queens — the 9th Congressional District — and, in fact, he lives within the boundaries of my parish, with a modest two-bedroom co-op just two blocks from our church.
Recently, the home was put up for sale (but reportedly taken off the market last week). A local real estate website still carries the listing, with photographs inside the apartment, including the one below of the master bedroom. (Interested? Asking price: $449,000).
I couldn’t help but be struck by the irony of the whimsical pillows that carry the initials of the owners: Huma and Anthony. (And I’m sure all concerned are glad the order of those pillows wasn’t reversed…) You can see more here.
UPDATE: My congressman has evidently apologized to his neighbors for all the mess he’s made in the neighborhood. Read all about it.
He’s also reportedly decided to seek professional help.
