The infamous “sexting” Congressman makes his site debut on March 28

Former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who resigned from office after a highly-publicized sexting scandal, is joining the media circuit.

The controversial politician has joined Business Insider as their newest political columnist.

“It's great to have the opportunity to add to the always smart and often iconoclastic coverage of politics and policy at Business Insider,” Weiner said in a statement. “I look forward to a spirited conversation with the BI community.”

The monthly column, entitled “Weiner!,” starts March 28 and will run on the last Friday of every month.

In a statement, Politics editor Hunter Walker commented: “We believe the unique combination of brashness and wonkiness that made Weiner one of last year's most memorable candidates — and one of the most high-profile advocates for health care reform during his time in Congress — will make him a perfect fit for Business Insider.”

Weiner, who tried to rebound his political career with a failed run for New York City Mayor, also writes regular columns for the New York Daily News.

    I heard it's going to be called “The Baloney by Tony…..Weiner.”

  • Michael Difani

    He should be teamed up with the Toronto mayor, Rob Ford. Now that would get some ratings! It's all baloney no matter how thin one slices it.

  • BlackPegasus

    The guy is full of himself, but he shouldn't be continually judged based on a personal failing that only affects himself and his marriage. How would any of you like to be judged on one mistake despite the good you've done in your life?

    Let the man move on.
