Sorry ladies — Congress’ most sought after bachelor is taken.

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Queens), of Forest Hills, announced he would wed Huma Abedin, a long-time aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Weiner said he proposed to the glamorous Washington power broker over the Memorial Day weekend.

Much was made of the couple’s ability to bridge cultural divisions in recent months. Weiner is Jewish and a staunch supporter of Israel. Abedin is a Muslim with roots in Pakistan. They have not decided which cultural traditions would be used for the ceremony.

The couple did not announce a date for the wedding.

Welcome to the discussion.
