New York Post Gives Anthony Weiner a Fake Wall Street Job

Source: NYMAG.COM

The New York Post reported this morning that pre-Snapchat sexter and former U.S. congressman Anthony Weiner was going to Wall Street. Citing "sources," the Post reported that Weiner has landed a part-time gig as "a consultant at Concept Capital Markets, a Madison Avenue brokerage firm."

That's news to Robert E. Moore, the CEO of Concept Capital Markets, who told us he's never met Weiner and hasn't offered him any kind of job.

"We've never met him, never talked to him, never seen him," Moore said. "We don't know how that story started."

Moore sent a memo to his employees this morning, calling the Post's story "inaccurate," and saying: "Concept Capital Markets has not engaged former congressman Anthony Weiner."

3. I know...

"We don't know how that story started."

The Post made it up. Just like Fox does all the time.

4. Sucks. Let's move forward and get my Weiner back in Congress. His staying away is a waste of

political talent. Forgive his past, embrace his professional talents and let's get another fighting progressive in there with Grayson.

11. I concur

 

Weiner's "scandal" would have barely registered if he was a republican from somewhere outside of New York.

13. How has she polled? From what I've read, New Yorkers prefer him as mayor over Baldwin or Spitzer

6. Why doesn't he just run for something? I never understand this

 

if he wants to serve, why doesn't he just do it?

You know, Jerry Brown was Governor. He ran for President. Then he found smaller positions to fill so he could just serve the people. He didn't whine, he just did.
A mayor job here, a AG job there.

So why doesn't Weiner just take a position somewhere?
to serve is what is important, the title is not.

He already could have run for assembly or fill out some position or other, then run for the house again, or something else.

Same with Spitzer

Run for the election board.

Move to VA and run there.
Being that his wife is most likely going to do something in Hillary's administration in 2017, find a small position and by then work his way back up.

After all, in 2014, there are only a few dozen seats we need to win that are currently red, you mean there is not one somewhere he could fill, and win?

Surely there is some place he could win something at.

Nothing is stopping him, should he actually want to serve the people and act like a good adult
and not a spoiled brat teen.

8. Perhaps what's stopping him is a promise to wife and child. Hilary's aide must travel, probably.

Somebody's got to be the responsible parent, heh heh. When Hilary resigns soon, perhaps his wife will leave, too, and he can be freer to re-enter public life. Hoping...

9. she will be in President Hillary's admin most likely. So there will be no rest

 

if he doesn't want a job, that's his right
if he does, he should just do it and not necessarily in NYC either.

Find a place in Georgetown, in MD, in VA, upstate new york where there are plenty of red seats to take over

just should do it
