Disgraced former Representative Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has reportedly found himself a brand new job as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a countertop company.
On Monday, the New York Post reported that Weiner, who is a convicted sex offender and serial sexter (someone who sends texts about sex that could include compromising pictures), is “trying to rebuild his shattered life by running a company that makes countertops out of broken glass.”
The Post obtained a copy of a promotional email announcing his latest venture.
“One of the amazing things about IceStone countertops, is that since people throw away all kinds of glass, there is almost an unlimited array of different colors we can use in our recycled glass creations,” Weiner wrote.
“So that when I joined the company as CEO I asked what I thought was an obvious question — Can we make a countertop in the colors of my favorite New York teams?” he asked.
“So while not everyone is a fan of the Islanders (fingers crossed), Mets (ugh) or Knicks (don’t ask), if you are interested in a little color in your life, give IceStone a call,” Weiner added. But don’t ever let him know you have a teenage daughter who has a cell phone.
The Post advised that “Weiner appears to have found the perfect employer in IceStone, which says its ‘commitment to second chances goes beyond our factory and our products.'”
IceStone states on its website:
We hire the homeless, refugees and train the formerly incarcerated and ensure that everyone gets paid a living wage and has access to subsidized health insurance and a voice in the company.
Yeah, but Anthony Weiner as CEO? The man is a degenerate serial sexual sex offender.
As of this writing, IceStone has not posted an announcement to the company website welcoming Weiner as an addition to the company, and he’s not listed as a member of the management team. Yet, he’s the new CEO.
The website CrimeOnline noted that “According to his LinkedIn account, Weiner quietly joined IceStone in May with no fanfare, and there’s not even a press release on the company’s website about his hiring.” Maybe the company doesn’t yet want to show the world the real Weiner yet.
Weiner was generally known as a progressive firebrand in Congress before, as CrimeOnline noted, in 2011 “he accidentally tweeted a crotch shot of himself on his public Twitter account. He left his seat in congress, and then launched a campaign for mayor of New York two years later, until another sexting scandal revealed his use of the online pseudonym “Carlos Danger.'” This idiot could have been the mayor of New York, and his sexual proclivities blew it.
The disgraced Democrat was caught in 2016 “sexting and sending lewd pictures of himself to a 15-year-old girl.” Weiner then served 16 months in federal prison for the crime. How many think he’s going to do it again? I do.
After being released from prison, Weiner was required to register as a sex offender and undergo three years of supervised release.
Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, a longtime Hillary Clinton top aide, filed for divorce after he was released from prison, but then later withdrew the petition. Abedin’s family has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, so it’s kind of interesting how she became a top aid to Hillary Clinton, who was Barack Obama’s Secretary of State, and who ran as the Democratic nominee president in 2016 and suffered an epic defeat by now President Donald Trump.
The New York Post did an investigative piece about Abedin’s work at the “Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs” from 1995 through 2008. It’s a Sharia law journal, and Abedin’s mother was the Editor if Chief.
When Weiner was asked about his insights on the 2020 election, he told the New York Times that he no longer follows politics very deeply, adding that though he’s willing to talk about his new venture, he was “reluctant to mix dairy with meat here.”
I believe in second chances too, even the third second chance around, so I wish Mr. Weiner luck in his new venture and only hope he can keep it in his pants before screwing up this lifeline help from IceStone.
