Huma Abedin, one of Democraatic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's top aides, said on Monday that she was separating from her husband, Anthony Weiner, after a sex scandal similar to an earlier incident that led him to resign from the US Congress.Can you hear me clapping? Huma added the following:
"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband," Huma Abedin said in a statement.
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.Good luck with that one, Huma.
I've been following this scandal for quite some time. There was much to be learned from this debacle:
With the month of Elul just around the corner, we all must remember that the gates of Teshuvah are open to all of us, even someone like Anthony Weiner. Will we take advantage of the opportunity?
