Weiner Heckler Made ‘Married To An Arab’ Comment (VIDEO)

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner’s campaign has released a longer video showing his confrontation with a man at a Brooklyn, N.Y. bakery on Wednesday.

In the 6:38 minute video, Weiner’s heckler can be heard saying “married to an Arab” moments before Weiner called him a “jackass.” Weiner’s wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, grew up in Saudi Arabia.

Blogger Jacob Kornbluh released a 2:19 minute video earlier in the day, which showed Weiner in a heated exchange with the man, who shouted “scumbag” as the former Congressman excited the bakery. The bakery is located in the Boro Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, a heavily Orthodox Jewish area, and Weiner’s heckler could be seen wearing a yarmulke.

“You’re my judge?” Weiner asked the man. “What rabbi taught you that you’re my judge?”
