Anthony Weiner may not be out of a job for long.

According to a letter published by the Huffington Post, the New York Democrat who resigned from Congress Thursday received a job offer at Flynt Management Group, LLC, that same day from Larry Flynt, publisher of the pornographic Hustler Magazine. The letter was published just hours after Weiner’s resignation.

In his letter, Flynt said Weiner is qualified for the job because of his “intensity and perseverance” — no mention was made of Weiner’s borderline pornographic tweets.

“I feel that your unfortunate resignation is a prime example of unfounded political pressure and the hypocrisy that has invaded democracy in Washington, D.C.,” Flynt wrote.

He offered to pay Weiner 20 percent more than his former congressional salary and provide equal medical benefits. The job requires relocation to Beverly Hills, Calif. Flynt said he would pay relocation costs.

“Just as we do not undertake insincere political crusades, we do not make insincere job offers,” he wrote. (OUT: Weiner resigns from Congress)

This is not the first time Flynt has targeted disgraced politicians to staff his corporation. According to CNN, the media mogul offered a job to Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino after he was exposed circulating explicit emails among his friends.
