Report: Huma Abedin Files For Divorce From Anthony Weiner

Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin has filed for divorce from disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner, hours after Weiner pled guilty to sending explicit sexual images to a minor, the New York Post reported Friday.

Under the terms of his plea deal, Weiner could serve up to a decade in prison. Prosecutors recommended a sentence term of three years.

Weiner and Abedin announced a temporary separation last August, though press reports earlier this year indicated that they were attempting to reconcile.
