Admiration, puzzlement over Weiner's loyal spouse

NEW YORK (AP) - When Huma Abedin first started getting media attention years ago, lots of people couldn't help but wonder what this beautiful, ambitious woman with a world-class Rolodex saw in Anthony Weiner.

That's a question New Yorkers might be asking themselves again after revelations that the mayoral candidate didn't immediately give up his habit of sending sexual pictures and messages to female fans after his humiliating resignation from Congress in 2011.

A top aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton, Abedin has long been seen as one of the brightest behind-the-scenes stars of the Washington political scene.

Her political career began as a White House intern, and she was at Clinton's side through all of her time in the Senate and as Secretary of State.
