Newly minted graduates desperate for job offers might consider tweeting a picture of their underwear-clad genitals – it worked for Anthony Weiner.
The smooth-chested former congressman has been offered at least two jobs since he accidentally tweeted a picture of his crotch and confessed to having online affairs with several women. He resigned from Congress on Thursday.
In a letter dated June 16, Hustler publisher Larry Flynt offered the disgraced politician a job at Flynt Management Group, LLC. Flynt demonstrates a surprising amount of self-awareness, repeatedly stating that the job offer is not, like you may think, a joke.
The letter reads, in part: "As a Congressman, you are known for your intensity and perseverance. I believe that this attitude, combined with your service in the House of Representatives’ Committee on Energy and Commerce, will make you a valuable asset to this corporation."
In other words, Flynt likes Weiner’s cojones. And it’s tough to argue that the New York Democrat is not intense.
The job would be in the Flynt Group’s Internet division. That’s a bit surprising, given that the Weiner scandal erupted because the congressman seemed unfamiliar with the nuances of private messaging on Twitter.
To prove his sincerity, Flynt offers Weiner 20 percent more than his congressional salary. And to sweeten the deal, he promises to cover the cost of Weiner’s relocation to Beverly Hills, home of the Flynt Management Group.
The Hollywood Reporter says that before the congressman resigned, Entourage executive producer Doug Ellin offered Weiner the chance to play himself on the show. Ellin told the news outlet that he had not heard back from Weiner.
