Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, announced she and former US Rep. Anthony Weiner are separating after new allegations surfaced that Weiner sent sexually explicit photos again. “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 Monday. The New York Post said the woman whom Weiner sent the photos to came forward with 12 selfies from him. Although they did not identify the woman, they described her as a 40-something divorcee from the West.
