Indo-Pak beauty being wooed by Jewish US lawmaker
Islamabad (PTI): A 32-year old beauty of Indian and Pakistani parentage, better known as US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton's "body person", is being wooed by a US lawmaker known for his anti-Muslim views.
Huma Abedin, born to a Pakistani mother and an Indian father, is also called the "secret weapon" in Clinton's campaign, and is being courted by New York Congressman Raymond Wiener.
Weiner, a Jewish lawmaker, has acknowledged that he is romancing Clinton's glamorous "body woman" official jargon for travelling assistant.
Weiner, a likely 2009 mayoral candidate, is literally pouring his heart into Clinton's White House bid, the Daily News of New York reported.
The 43-year-old bachelor admitted on Thursday that he is "hot" for Abedin, who was born in Michigan and raised in Saudi Arabia.
The whispers have been around for months, but Weiner had until Thursday ducked questions about her, saying his personal life was off-limits.
Though she recently posed for a glamorous photo spread in Vogue, Abedin is reported to be "press-shy".
She got an internship in the First Lady's office in 1996 and quickly became her indispensable right hand. These days, Abedin rarely leaves Clinton's side, while Weiner rarely leaves hers.
