DISGRACED Democrat Anthony Weiner was spotted out and about with his ex-wife Huma Abedin in New York City as he celebrated a new gig as CEO of a countertop company.
The 56-year-old former congressman looked casual in a navy blue polo shirt and khakis while enjoying the afternoon with his son Jordan Zain on Monday.
Both parents walked hand-in-hand with his eight-year-old while strolling through the streets of Manhattan, while Abedin carried Jordan’s red backpack.
On Monday, students in the Big Apple attended their first in-person classes since the coronavirus pandemic began.
Hours before the afternoon outing, Weiner announced his new job in a PR email for the Brooklyn-based recycled glass company IceStone, which he took over in May, the New York Times reported.
Included in the pitch was a blue-and-orange Mets-themed glass prototype made by the business, which he claims offers an “unlimited array of different colors we can use in our recycled glass creations.”
“It’s a reminder that even as a lot of people are choosing our gorgeous light/white colors” for a selection of 17 options, Weiner wrote, “we get calls every day from customers who want a little color in their kitchen, man cave, or restaurant bar.”
Weiner confirmed the news to the Times by phone and explained he had been advising one of the company’s owners, who then asked him to step into the role.
“This might not be as much as a swerve out of the lane as you might think,” he said.
“You’re trying to make payroll and understand the marketplace. I’m learning a lot.”
The ex-politician represented New York’s 9th congressional district from 1999 to 2011, when he announced his resignation after several photos of a scantily-clad Weiner were published by TMZ.
He was released from federal custody last year after serving 18 months for sexting a 15-year-old girl in 2017.
Reports of the federal investigation that led to the charges against him -transferring obscene material to a minor – first surfaced after the teen’s story was published in the Daily Mail in September 2016.
Abedin – who had also weathered his 2011 and 2013 sexting scandals beside her ex-husband – filed for divorce from Weiner a month before the Daily Mail story ran.
Weiner was spotted with his son at a children’s park in the Hamptons earlier this summer despite being a registered sex offender.
