Anthony Weiner Has a New Job

Anthony Weiner is back, this time as a political columnist for Business Insider. Site editor Hunter Walker made the announcement today, revealing that Weiner will be writing a monthly column for the site called “Weiner!”

In a statement, Weiner said, “It’s great to have the opportunity to add to the always smart and often iconoclastic coverage of politics and policy at Business Insider. I look forward to a spirited conversation with the BI community.”

In a Facebook post at the end of last year, Weiner intimated at 2014 plans that included his thoughts on progressives needing to stop coming “to knife fights carrying library books.”

Weiner most recently attempted a political comeback in last year’s race to be the next mayor of New York City, a race in which he lost to current mayor Bill de Blasio.
