From Congress to countertops: Former Dem Rep. Anthony Weiner announces he’s now CEO of company that makes glass products

Former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.) has reportedly found himself a new gig: chief executive officer of a countertop company.

What are the details?

The New York Post was first to report Monday that Weiner — a convicted sex offender and serial sexter — is “trying to rebuild his shattered life by running a company that makes countertops out of broken glass.”

The outlet got its hands on a promotional email announcing his latest venture.

“One of the amazing things about IceStone countertops, is that since people throw away all kinds of glass, there is almost an unlimited array of different colors we can use in our recycled glass creations,” Wiener wrote.

“So that when I joined the company as CEO I asked what I thought was an obvious question — Can we make a countertop in the colors of my favorite New York teams?” he asked.

“So while not everyone is a fan of the Islanders (fingers crossed), Mets (ugh) or Knicks (don’t ask), if you are interested in a little color in your life, give IceStone a call,” Weiner added.

The Post suggested that “Weiner appears to have found the perfect employer in IceStone, which says its ‘commitment to second chances goes beyond our factory and our products.'”

IceStone states on its website:

We hire the homeless, refugees and train the formerly incarcerated and ensure that everyone gets paid a living wage and has access to subsidized health insurance and a voice in the company.

As of this writing, IceStone has not posted an announcement to its website welcoming Weiner as an addition to the company, and he is not listed as a member of the leadership team.

CrimeOnline pointed out that “According to his LinkedIn account, Weiner quietly joined IceStone in May with no fanfare — there’s not even a press release on the company’s website about his hiring.”

What’s the background?

Weiner was known as a progressive firebrand in Congress before, as CrimeOnline noted, in 2011 “he accidentally tweeted a crotch shot of himself on his public Twitter account. He left his seat in congress, and then launched a campaign for mayor of New York two years later — until another sexting scandal revealed his use of the online pseudonym “Carlos Danger.'”

The disgraced Democrat was caught in 2016 “sexting and sending lewd pictures of himself to a 15-year-old girl” as reported previously by TheBlaze. Weiner served 16 months in federal prison for the crime.

After being released, Weiner was required to register as a sex offender and undergo three years of supervised release.

Huma Abedin, his wife and longtime Hillary Clinton top aide, filed for divorce following his release, but later withdrew the petition.

Anthony Wiener is allegedly trying to get more access at his son’s school — and parents are not happy about it

The school board where Anthony Weiner’s son attends is reportedly upsetting parents by considering letting the disgraced former congressman and convicted sex offender back onto school grounds.

Weiner — who was recently imprisoned for sexting with a 15-year-old girl — has been lobbying for the change so that he can pick up his son, Jordan, 8, and attend events such as parent-teacher conferences, Page Six reported.

Page Six noted that while it is commonly held that sex offenders are not allowed in places where children are often found, such as parks and schools, New York State law allows for an exception to be made if the offender has a child at a school. In those cases, it is up to the school board to make the ultimate determination.

The news that the school board is deliberating over the matter has evidently caused a stir in the community.

“Parents are very upset,” a source allegedly told Page Six. “The school has kids that are 16 and 17 — the same age as [the kid] that he was [sexting] with.”

In September 2016, Weiner was caught sexting and sending lewd pictures of himself to a 15-year-old girl, even asking the girl to engage in “rape fantasies” with him, the Daily Mail reported. He was later sentenced to 21 months in federal prison for the crime but only served 16 months.

After being released, Weiner was required to register as a sex offender and undergo three years of supervised release. Despite filing for a divorce after news broke that he was sexting with a minor, Weiner’s wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, withdrew her petition.

According to the New York Post, Weiner has since moved into the same East Village apartment building where Abedin and their son live.
