Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin filed for separation today after the latest lewd Twitter messages by her husband Anthony Weiner made headlines this weekend.
ABC News reported:
Huma Abedin announced today that she is separating from her husband Anthony Weiner.
The announcement comes in the wake of the latest allegations of the former congressman sending lewd messages to a woman online which were revealed by The New York Post last night.
“After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy,” Abedin said in a statement released today.
Abedin, who is one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides, married Weiner in 2010 when he was a Democratic congressman representing a district in Queens, New York. Former President Bill Clinton officiated at their wedding.
