After new photos and online conversation surfaced between former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) and another young woman on Twitter, wife and personal aide to Hillary Clinton Huma Abedin has announced she is separating from him.


"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband," the statement read. "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."

New York Daily News opinion editor Josh Greenman told The Daily Beast they will no longer be running Weiner's column.

"[W]e won’t be running his columns in the future," Greenman said in a statement.
