Since resigning from office, Anthony Weiner has found a lucrative career as a corporate consultant to more than a dozen companies, including a medical records provider called CureMD, and an international law firm, Covington & Burling.

From the New York Times:


He and his wife, Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton, disclosed last week that they had a combined income of $496,000 in 2012, most of it from Mr. Weiner’s work. The money provided a lifestyle-changing infusion for the couple, who moved from a modest home in Forest Hills, Queens, to a large apartment on Park Avenue South in Manhattan.

Mr. Weiner’s rapid rise from disgraced lawmaker to in-demand strategic consultant demonstrates the enduring power of Washington’s revolving door.

“I am a good capitalist," he told the Times.
