Huma Abedin Is Planning A Leave Of Absence From The State Department


Huma Abedin — wife of sexting-scandal-embattled Anthony Weiner — is reportedly planning to take some time off from her job at the State Department.

Abedin travels with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her longtime boss. Her return from a state trip to Africa prompted Weiner’s resignation from Congress.

Abedin is currently pregnant with the couple’s child.

The rumour comes days after cameras spotted the couple eating lunch in Manhattan together.
