Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, is separating from husband Anthony Weiner, after the former congressman found himself at the center of another alleged sexting scandal.
"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband," Abedin said in a statement Monday. "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."
The news comes in the wake of a New York Post report that Weiner had sexted with another woman while his wife campaigned for Clinton. Weiner's Twitter account has since disappeared.
In a comment to the Post, Weiner said he and the other woman "have been friends for some time."
"She has asked me not to comment except to say that our conversations were private, often included pictures of her nieces and nephews and my son and were always appropriate," he told the newspaper.
Weiner resigned from his seat as representative for New York's 9th Congressional District in 2011 after reports surfaced that he had sent women explicit messages and photos online. Two years later, his attempt to resurrect his political career as a mayoral candidate in New York City was sidelined after similar reports of lewd messages surfaced. In the 2013 Democratic mayoral primary he received less than 5 percent of the vote.
