Anthony Weiner has always had an eye for the main chance. Now, with his options rather limited, Weiner’s main chance apparently resides in the marijuana business. This, at least, is what the Daily Mail is reporting:
Anthony Weiner is swapping politics for the marijuana business and told a potential investor to downplay his ‘sexual stuff’, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.
The convicted sex offender, who pleaded guilty in 2017 to sexting a 15-year-old girl after DailyMail.com exposed his sexual correspondence with the teen, was pictured on Friday having a breakfast meeting in downtown Manhattan.
Weiner, casually dressed and wearing his favorite Mets baseball cap, chatted for around 30 minutes with an unidentified man at Peet’s Coffee in Union Square, just steps from his former luxury apartment building.
Weiner, 54, is currently living at a halfway house in the Bronx after being released early from jail for good behavior. He was sentenced to 21 months in a Massachusetts prison in November 2017.
A source told DailyMail.com: ‘Weiner was advising the other man on how to approach investors and said, ”Tell them you have this great venture and then be like, I know the perfect guy”.
‘Weiner appeared to be referring to himself and explaining how to get other money on board but conceal his involvement.’
"From politics to pushing weed. I can’t say it’s a natural progression, but it’s not an unnatural one either.
"In Weiner’s case, I agree with a friend who quips that with so many scumbags already in the marijuana business the sexting former congressman will fit right in."
