NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Less than 24-hours after pulling the plug on his congressional career, Anthony Weiner is holing up in the Hamptons. Sooner or later, though, he’s going to have to get a new job, and the offers have already started to pour in.
Gossip site TMZ has obtained a copy of a letter sent from Hustler Magazine tycoon Larry Flynt to Weiner offering him ‘legit’ work. In his letter, Flynt assures the former 9th district representative that, “This offer is not made in jest” and says he is “willing to pay twenty percent more than your former Congressional salary, ensuring that your medical benefits would be equal to what you were previously receiving.”
While Flynt didn’t go into specifics about what the exact position would be, he did indicate in his letter that Weiner would fill a role within the Internet group of Flynt Management Group, LLC. Social media maven, perhaps?
In closing, Larry continued his wooing of the former congressman by showing sympathy for his recent professional plight, “While this employment opportunity is being offered in large part due to your qualifications and clear passion for making a change, I feel that your unfortunate resignation is a prime example of unfounded political pressure and the hypocrisy that has invaded democracy in Washington D.C. I hope you will sincerely consider this offer, and I look forward to your response.”
It’s a pretty good offer Weiner, a 20% raise and access to a bevy of new people to show your panties to—that’s virtually unheard of in this economy.
My advice: take it.
