Weiner's new jobs


Don't worry about Anthony Weiner. He may have resigned from Congress in a hot, sticky mess, but he's doing just fine. He's even employed, sort of. And, oddly enough, he's been meeting with campaign donors, according to the New York Times:

More recently, Mr. Weiner has been meeting privately with campaign donors, according to a person who has been apprised of the meetings but is not authorized to discuss them.

In addition, Mr. Weiner has been hired by some clients as a legislative consultant, according to a person close to the Weiners who had discussed it with them but declined to be named. “He’s using his Rolodex to consult,” the person said. In September, Mr. Weiner accompanied executives of an energy company to an “introductory meeting” with a loan officer at the Export-Import Bank of the United States based in Washington, D.C., according to Maura Policelli, a bank spokeswoman. She said she was unaware of Mr. Weiner’s relationship to the executives.

But there's some point-and-laugh here. He's still seen as a toxic Weiner by some:

Several months ago, he approached a prominent New York businessman and Democratic donor about going to work for his firm. But the businessman turned Mr. Weiner away, saying that bringing him on board would draw unflattering attention to him and his business, said a senior Democrat with direct knowledge of the episode.
