Weiner's Wife questioned in dual job probe, "part time job at State for 135K"



quote:

Abedin is facing her own troubles -- less salacious than her husband's, but potentially more severe.
On June 13, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote her and Secretary of State John Kerry asking why Abedin, the deputy chief of staff at the State Department under former Secretary Hillary Clinton, was granted status as a "special government employee" after the birth of her son.
That title allowed her to work from home as a part-time consultant to State, earning $135,000 as a government employee -- while also earning $355,000 as a consultant for Teneo, where former President Bill Clinton is a board member.
Grassley wants to know who authorized Abedin's change in status, what effect that change had on her security clearances, and whether the Department interacted with the companies with which Abedin consulted.
Craig Holman of Public Citizen, a government ethics watchdog group, says Abedin's dual status raises serious questions.
"If this story pans out that Huma actually had access to inside information while serving as a government official but at the same time serving as a strategic consultant to a firm that actively trades in the stock market, this could be quite a problem, " he said.



I would say 75% percent of ALL politicians are corrupt to the core, whats sad is Democrats somehow think they are the party of the "little man"

Licking Hillary's kitty pays well. I mean c'mon, that's hazardous duty. She gets you in a death grip with those thunder thighs, and it's all over.

:doublefistedcasty:

Yet the government wonders why they are dead broke. Anyone else know of any part time gigs that pay 135k/year? I certainly don't

Predictably, the media shills for this "poor, abused woman". It's just disgusting.

"I was riveted. We were all riveted. Everyone thought Abedin was painful to watch, and I don’t disagree. Still, I thought she sounded real, and plainspoken, and, even in that excruciatingly awkward situation, she retained the poise and dignity that I’ve always admired in her. No small feat."

"She’s fabulous looking – the huge, wide-apart eyes, the semi-Modigliani-ish, outsized features. Then there’s her impeccable chic, which comes from her, not from a stylist, and which she carries off in the most natural way and always has. But, beyond these superficial reasons, I’ve always admire Abedin’s utter professionalism."


Two cheers for the beleaguered Huma Abedin

Come on guys, let's feel sad for her. She's deserves our sympathy, not scrutiny...

A woman with a part time government job making 135K with a full time job for 355K? And the woman she works for Husband is on the board of the 355K job.

Shouldn't your advisers tell you to clean up your dirty work before running for office?

As an independent I would fully enjoy seeing anyone looking into this BS. What the heck does she do for the $355K job for that matter? As a government employee (part or full-time) this should be a concern.

Government employees should be treated like NCAA athletes when it comes to these side jobs.

Maybe, but then there is this.

The part time job at State and being a highly paid consultanat for a firm that her partner's husband is on the Board of is a little sketch.

Michelle Obama was paid $316,962 a year to handle community affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center. Probably did about as much work as she did. That was back when she was downtrodden, before she was "proud of her country".

I'm sure she had security clearance, but the State Department will deny it, clean up the paper trail and nothing will come of it.

I'm not exactly sure what to think about this. The R's certainly don't have enough political chips to chase every dirty deed in D.C. (Phony scandal speeches). But Grassly brings up a good point, is Huma valuable in her private consulting job because of any government information she obtains from the State Department?
