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.
