Even if scandal-stained Rep. Anthony Weiner didn't want to stay in office, he needs to stay in office.Meanwhile, the lamestream media, apparently caught up poring over years-old Sarah Palin emails, probably doesn't have the investigative skills to figure out why Weiner was carrying on with a child online. It's all a distraction or something.
Unlike many of his peers in the House, Weiner doesn't have a business or even a law degree to fall back on.
Weiner, 46, took home $156,117 in 2010, according to his federal tax returns released by his staff.
His humiliated wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifary Rodham Clinton, earned $154,000 in 2009, federal records show.
He owes between $10,000 and $15,000 on his American Express card, according to his most recent financial-disclosure forms.
If he steps down, he could grovel to cable TV execs for talking-head "analyst" gigs that hopefully pay more than the $825 he gets for appearing on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher."
But with Weiner's reputation in ruins, other lucrative jobs may be hard to get.
