Clinton Sponsor Takes Care of Weiners

Anthony Weiner. who quit as a US congressman from New York after a sexting scandal, is living in style, thanks most likely to a Bill and Hillary Clinton donor.

NyPo has the story:
Anthony Weiner’s wife not only took him back, she took him back in style — moving with the shamed pol into a luxurious, $3.3 million Manhattan pad owned by a deep-pocketed Democratic donor...

Weiner and beautiful, brainy spouse Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, landed in the sprawling, 12th-floor Park Avenue trophy residence owned by Rosen Partners LLC, which is headed by close Clinton pal Jack Rosen, records show...

Rosen — who oversees the American Jewish Congress — is an influential international political force. He’s been a guest at the White House, flies the Clintons in his private plane, and has poured money into both Bill and Hillary Clinton’s election campaigns over the years, according to campaign-finance records.

He has also contributed several thousand dollars to Weiner’s coffers, and is a top Obama bundler, donating more than $500,000 to the president’s re-election efforts.
The market-rate rent on Weiner and Abedin’s 2,120-square-foot, four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom apartment — where the disgraced pol has said he spends his days doing laundry and changing baby son Jordan’s diapers — is at least $12,000 to $14,000 a month, real-estate sources said....

Some Weiner-watchers are stunned that the pol, who gave up his $174,000 salary when he resigned, and Huma, who makes around $155,000 annually, can afford the posh pad at 254 Park Ave. South at East 20th Street
“It’s a ridiculously expensive place,” said a top Democratic fund-raising source with deep ties to the Clintons.

“Everyone assumes they live there for free, thanks to a donor, a friend of Bill and Hillary, or even just someone with an empty place who is connected,” the source said....

But Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines insisted that Weiner and Abedin pay “market rate’’ for the pad....

Weiner hasn’t landed steady work since leaving office, according to sources. But some friends of the onetime rising star said he has consulting work and will have no problem exceeding his congressional salary.


  1. He must be doing ok. I was stunned when he turned down that lucrative endorsement deal with Oscar Meyer.

  2. I thought it was Monica who took care of wein... Oh never mind.

  3. "Weiner-watchers" lol... nice one. What a douche this guy is.

  4. Renting his property out to keep it occupied is just a way for Rosen to mask that the NY Real Estate market is actually depressed, even in the posh tier.

  5. The corrupt always manage to richly reward the corrupt. Keep their egos inflated. It's called incentivizing. But what does Jack Rosen get out of this deal? Are the Saudis paying him?

  6. The Saudi connection -- from Jewish Virtual Library, Aliza Davidovit -- "And so Rosen has been actively trying to create a dialogue between the Jewish community and prominent Arab leaders in the Muslim world. Rosen has even hosted His Royal Highness Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, the ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United States, at his home. “Once people are given a chance to talk and to get to know each other, it is not so hard to make friends and find common bonds,”

  7. Huma is Hillary's lover. Weiner is a beard. The Clintons paid for his political power. He loses it after being caught engaged in an adulterous adventure because his marriage is a fiction put on to keep a secret that cannot be divulged. Huma has family ties to the Holy Land Foundation terror funding scandal. By law she should be fired, but she won't be because of her special relationship with Hillary.
