I actually thought this divorce might never come, especially after reports that Huma Abedin was reconciling with her disgraced husband Anthony Weiner. I guess the plea he made in federal court today made such efforts untenable. He’s facing years in prison for sexting a 15-year-old girl about his rape fantasies, which was pretty bad even taking into account the lecherous standards of Mr. Weiner.

From the NY Post

Huma Abedin has finally filed for divorce against Anthony Weiner, just as her estranged husband pleaded guilty to sexting with a minor.

She brought an anonymous versus anonymous action in Manhattan Supreme Court Friday.

She’s asking for the court to seal the case.

The filing is uncontested meaning she is not expecting a fight over custody or the couple’s assets. 

I think Weiner has run out of fighting spirit, given his weeping appearance today in court. To be honest, I do think the guy has a sickness, but he’s known that for years. If he had truly wanted to get better, he would have ditched the internet altogether, at least for a period of years. Instead, he caught caught up time and time again. Now, he’ headed to jail.

Federal jail is pretty nice when compared to state jail, though, so at least there’s that.
