Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin announced Monday that she was separating from her husband, former congressman and onetime New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner.
"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband," Abedin said. "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."
The announcement by Abedin, who currently serves as the vice chairwoman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, comes hours after a New York Post report that Weiner was again sending sexually suggestive messages with at least one woman.
Donald Trump's new $10 million TV ad cites two contradictory tax plans — one that Trump has explicitly ruled out and another that he has yet to endorse — raising more questions about what policies the GOP presidential nominee supports, NBC News reports.
Trump's new ad seems generic enough for a Republican politician. In it, he promises lower taxes, more jobs, and growth for small businesses.
But an examination of the fine print supporting the claims provides confusion, not clarity. The ad cites four claims, two from a House Republican proposal similar to one he announced, two from his old tax plan from last year, which had drastically different rates.
So does Trump support the House Republican plan? Does he support his old plan? A spokesman for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mylan says it will make available a generic version of its EpiPen, as criticism mounts over the price of its injectable medicine.
The company said Monday that its U.S. subsidiary will put out a generic version of the EpiPen that will have a list price of $300 for a two-pack — about half the current price. It will be available in both 0.15 mg and 0.30 mg strengths.
EpiPens are used in emergencies to treat severe allergies to insect bites and foods like nuts and eggs that can lead to anaphylactic shock.
Reports of a gunman opening fire that turned out to be false caused panicked evacuations at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday night, while flights to and from the airport saw major delays.
The central terminal area at LAX reopened around 11 p.m. Sunday, according to the LA Airport Police. Police had searched the airport after hearing reports of possible gunfire around 8:45 p.m. in Terminal 8. The reports were unconfirmed, the LA Airport Police posted on Twitter.
A person in a Zorro costume was detained by airport police, authorities said. It was unclear if the two incidents were related.
Still, the security scare stirred "complete chaos," as one passenger put it. Hundreds of people rushed from terminals on to sidewalks or the tarmac. And it left a mess with three terminals shut down, roads closed and flights held in the air and on the ground.

The OneOrlando Fund has raised $23 million and counting for Pulse nightclub shooting victims, but experts say the donations won't be enough to completely offset medical and other expenses incurred from the mass shooting.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that as generous as the donations have been to aid victims of the June shooting that left 49 dead, it won't be enough to cover all of their medical bills, long-term care and lost wages.
In addition to worrying about their recovery, victims are now concerned by mounting medical bills and normal routine living expenses because many are still in treatment and have not yet been able to return to work.

More than 300 wild reindeer have been killed by lighting in central Norway.
The Norwegian Environment Agency has released eerie images showing a jumble of reindeer carcasses scattered across a small area on the Hardangervidda mountain plateau. The agency says 323 animals were killed, including 70 calves, in the lightning storm Friday.
Agency spokesman Kjartan Knutsen told The Associated Press it's not uncommon for reindeer or other wildlife to be killed by lightning strikes but this was an unusually deadly event.
"We have not heard about such numbers before," he said Monday.
Such new rules include a weight limit and when the devices can be flown.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is catching criticism from conservationists for reeling in a 154.5-pound thresher shark off Long Island.
The Democrat tweeted a picture of his catch Sunday.
Cuomo's office notes he was legally permitted to keep the shark. But several social media users still criticized the decision.
Shark Research Institute director Marie Levine says Monday that threshers are considered vulnerable, a conservation status just below endangered. She says that sport fishing isn't a leading shark killer but that releasing the fish would have been preferable.
A man dressed as the character Zorro and carrying what turned out to be a plastic sword was briefly detained Sunday before a night of evacuations, flight delays and chaos at Los Angeles International Airport. Airport police encountered the man at about 8:40 p.m. outside an LAX terminal just minutes before authorities received several false reports of an active shooter. Officers approached the man with weapons drawn "out of an abundance of caution," airport police said in a statement.
The man was briefly detained and questioned by police before he was released Sunday night, police said. Police did not confirm whether the shooting reports and sword incident were related.
