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.
