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.

Why Won't Weiner Quit? He Needs the Money
This twerp has never had a job in the private sector and doesn't have a law degree. Since MSNBC is currently at full staff (like Weiner most of the time), that leaves him with nothing else to do but cling bitterly to his job. He obviously doesn't care that he's the biggest joke in America. It still carries a hefty paycheck.
